What The Role Is

The Resilience and Engagement Division (RED) helps build a strong society by strengthening social capital, and inspiring and empowering individuals to contribute to the common good. We do this through three pillars of work: fostering a strong and inclusive sense of national identity; nurturing an active citizenry, and developing the public service’s capabilities to engage and partner citizens.

These Community Networks comprise local offices of government agencies, grassroots organisations, social service agencies, corporates, schools, religious organisations and other local... community stakeholders within each town in Singapore. We also identify and work with partners to strengthen skills-based volunteerism and to drive volunteerism and philanthropy amongst target segments such as corporates, seniors and youths.

Your Responsibilities Include
• Leading a team to build a strong and stable SG Cares Volunteer Centre eco-system and support the VCs’ work in nurturing and growing the SG Cares Community Networks
• Identifying opportunity areas to strengthen volunteering and sense of care at the town level, by synthesising trend data, local data and stakeholder feedback
• Developing medium to long-term strategies and plans to grow locale-based volunteerism and working with key internal and external stakeholders to develop and pilot programmes and initiatives that can be replicated across different towns
• Evaluating impact of key projects against desired policy outcomes

What We Are Looking For
• A passion for Singapore and a keen interest to contribute to our mission of building an inclusive and caring society
• At least 5 – 6 years of relevant work experience in partnership engagement and community project implementation
• Excellent analytical and critical thinking skills, including the ability to pull together quantitative and qualitative data to get to the heart of issues
