Social & Business Skill Trainer

Our participants need more than technical skills to succeed in the workplace. We’re regularly looking for social & business skill trainers and workshop leaders to offer in-person or online workshops to our participants or alumni.

«Win-Win-Win, for the young talents, for the Swiss labour market, for personal experience.»

Markus Suter, Job Coach

«My role as a job coach during the internship is to connect and support both the intern and the company with the intention to enable a following fixed contract. Taking additional responsibility and giving back sth. with a value is my motivation and that’s also the reason why I am again with Powercoders. For me personally it’s a win-win, I learn about other cultures and have realized even more that the place of birth is sth to be thankful for.»

Beate-Christin Hastedt, Job Coach

«On joining Powercoders, I was truly impressed by the quality and dedication of all the people involved, professionals and volunteers alike. And the coachees are amazing : talented, hard workers, highly motivated, yet vulnerable, humble and immensely grateful. It’s a honour to stand on their side.»
