SUPPORT TALENTS IN THE MENA REGION

Our participants live in different countries and cultures. They need someone by their side during the internship to consult and advise them when they have questions and need support.

 

BACKGROUND

Remotecoders is a social spin-off of Powercoders, a coding academy and an IT job integration program originally from Switzerland. Together with the Swiss government and several foundations Remotecoders is determined to offer IT talents from vulnerable groups in North Africa and the Middle East remote job opportunities with European IT companies.


 

CHALLENGES

We are connecting two of the most pressing challenges for Europe to one solution:

  1. Migration: Vulnerable people in North Africa and the Middle East don’t have the same opportunities. Especially no access to the remote IT job market. Therefore many decide to migrate to Europe.  

  2. Digitalization: The European IT industry is lacking IT professionals on all levels. Since the COVID-19 crisis it also does not matter that much anymore from where they work.

 

SOLUTION

Our solution is designed and optimized to place vulnerable IT talents from the MENA region in remote jobs with European IT companies. Our 7-step-process is as follows:

We are determined to provide the best support to our participants. On the other hand we know that you play a crucial role to make this a success. Here the success factors:

  • Set up goals together with the company and the intern at the very beginning.

  • Meet regularly with the intern and discuss the challenges and propose solutions.

  • Meet every month with the company and the intern to evaluate the progress.
