About the Job

TMT is embarking on the Thriving Communities Initiative (TCI) - a place based philanthropic approach contributing to our vision of thriving and sustainable communities. This involves us going deeply with specific neighbourhoods in Singapore, to focus our charitable resources and make a transformative impact. We have identified a neighbourhood located in the north of Singapore, Chong Pang, to be our pilot site.

You will develop invaluable skills in community engagement, project management, and philanthropy while making a meaningful difference in local communities.

  • Build Relationships: Outreach to, engage, and develop strong relationships with a variety of stakeholders (e.g. residents, small business owners, community leaders, government partners) within the Chong Pang neighbourhood to foster trust and collaboration.
  • Identify Strengths and Assets: Analyse and connect strengths within the community that can be harnessed to address challenges and promote community well-being.
  • Programme Support: Provide support to the team to plan and execute TCI, managing data and working with both internal and external key stakeholders.

  • Flexible work arrangements are possible, including adjusting working hours and days according to your schedule. May be required to work on some weekday evenings or weekends.
  • A monthly stipend, depending on current qualifications

While candidates with the above experience would be preferred, we are open to considering candidates from diverse backgrounds. We recognise that academic performance and experience alone do not define a person’s competencies or fit in an organisation. What matters most is having the right underlying character and attitudes. If you have not worked in the social sector, but you believe you have what it takes to excel, we would like to hear from you too. Tell us why you feel you have what it takes to thrive in this role!
