Cu ceva vreme în urmă vă spuneam că suntem în căutarea unui coordonator pentru echipa noastră de supereroi. E cu noi, a venit. O cheamă Florina Iordache și va fi OM BUN la MagiCAMP, aka Director Operațional. Florina știe să fie atentă cu oamenii mari și să se joace cu mult zâmbet cu cei mici. Vine de la Cluj, iar noi am primit-o de parcă ar fi fost a noastră din totdeauna.
De ce aveam nevoie de încă un om bun? Pentru că ne-ați ajutat să creștem. Mult. Anul acesta, în tabăra de la Brănești zumzăie o vară întreagă aproape 280 de copii. Lună de lună, mai bine de 150 de familii primesc coletul MagicBOX. MagicHOME, refugiul părinților, se extinde și în alte orașe cu centre onco-pediatrice din țară. Am crescut și e de bine. Ne păstrăm grija și păsarea și adăugam un strop în plus de rigoare. De aceea am căutat OM BUN.
Bine ai venit, Florina!
Probabil că este cel mai frumos job din lume. Şi asta pentru că MagiCAMP e locul în care faci bine, respiri bine, eşti înconjurat de oameni buni şi, împreună cu ei, înseninezi vieţi.
MagiCAMP a crescut într-un ritm care ne-a depăşit aşteptările. De la o tabără de doar două săptămâni în 2014, am ajuns la 11 serii şi peste 250 de copii îngrijiţi de mai bine de 1000 de voluntari. Prin programe ca MagicBOX sau MagicHOME ajutăm în fiecare an sute de familii în lupta lor cu cancerul.
Pentru asta e nevoie de curaj, un suflet bun, pricepere, pasiune şi mai ales să nu te dai niciodată bătut. Dacă ai aceste calităţi şi dacă vrei să conduci echipa noastră din funcţia de Director executiv, ia-ţi inima în dinţi şi trimite-ne un e-mail.
And because we need you to be proficient in English, please find below the detailed job description and application procedure.
Please send your CV to [email protected] before May 30. The CV will be accompanied by an intent letter which includes the candidates’ vision regarding MagiCAMP’s long-term development. Please use the subject line “Om bun” for your email.
