Role Title: City Lead- Mumbai and Pune

About Enabling Leadership

We have a mission to change the world and we’re looking for like-minded individuals to join us! At Enabling Leadership, we believe that creating a different generation of “leaders” is the solution to most of the complex global challenges we face today. Our unique programs, “Music Basti” (music), “Just for Kicks” (football) and Build Maya (Lego) are designed to equip children, especially those who are economically and educationally marginalized, to rewrite the definition of being “successful”. It is essential to redefine this in terms of people who take responsibility for their own individual, and our shared, combined futures. Our young “leaders” demonstrate and embody these values, principles, behaviors, choices and actions, recognizing that for me to win, everyone must win. Every child can, and should be a leader – a role model, a global citizen and a positive contributor – it is critical for every individual to be this kind of a leader, and not just a handful of people. Now, more than ever, children need to recognize that we live in a shared world and we must learn to collaborate, think creatively and inspire positive action.

Working at Enabling Leadership: As a culture-first organization, we are looking for individuals who embody the values and behaviors we work tirelessly to teach our students every day. Our teams work with a diverse set of stakeholders – children, parents, school communities, sportspersons, musicians, artists, volunteers, nonprofits, media and educational institutions, and corporates. Our employees pride themselves on high performance and productivity, while living balanced lives (we don’t limit sick leave days, we believe every employee’s health comes first!). Our staff design and manage their own schedules, choose where to work from (no cubicles!), and have a dynamic leadership team to work with. Our priority is to develop passionate, responsible, creative and accountable employees, championing our values in today’s world. Function: The City Lead is the functional head responsible for the implementation quality and outcomes of all Enabling Leadership Programs in the city/ region.
