Programme Executive – Outreach & Engagement

Most low-wage migrant workers living and working in Singapore have minimal or no social and family support. When faced with a crisis (e.g. health issue, work injury, salary disputes, loss of income), many of them do not know who or where to turn to for help.

We are looking for a mature team player to act as an advocate; engage, educate and empower low-wage migrant workers (primarily in the construction, marine and process sectors) through our outreach events. Other engagements may focus on their coping mechanisms to improve their wellbeing and better their daily lives and experiences while working in Singapore.

This role reports to the Head of Casework & Social Services.

  • Engage with staff, partners, and volunteers to run regular migrant outreach programmes, creating awareness of HealthServe’s services
  • Plan and implement outreach programmes for low wage migrant workers living in dormitories, and other facilities (e.g. private-residences, Migrant Worker On-boarding Centre) and at Recreation Centres
  • Plan and coordinate with volunteers and community partners to support these outreach programmes
  • Collaborate with student groups to participate in these outreach programmes
  • Identify, explore and develop new areas or platforms to organise outreach programmes to reach low-wage migrant workers
  • Assist in evaluation and reporting of programmes
  • Establish and maintain relationships with partners and stakeholders to deliver suitable programmes for the migrant worker community
  • Support in SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) review to ensure efficiency, effectiveness, and quality of service
  • Plan and collaborate with other departments to achieve organisational goals
  • Support in the development and distribution of curriculum and educational content contextualised for migrant workers
  • Provide support to Casework and Social Services Department to achieve service objectives
  • Assist and provide support on daily operation matters
