Google Digital Skills Mentors


About the Programme and the Role

In line with Google’s continuous support to SMEs and individuals in SSA on the Google Digital Skills for Africa project, We launched the Google mentorship program in more than 3 regions in Africa in April. The mentorship program provides SMEs with an opportunity to get expert coaching advice and hands-on tutoring on digital tools in any area of their business. Having trained more than 200 businesses on the Google mentorship program, The Grow with Google team is scaling the mentorship program to reach more businesses in Africa. We would be launching the program in more regions than before as well as in francophone countries. If the last year has taught us anything, it is that the world we live in is constantly changing and the only way to progress is to evolve. As such, we are excited to be working on the next evolution of this awesome programme and to help us deliver this we are looking for the next generation of digital experts! These digital experts will help us mentor businesses and provide 1:1 support to help sustain and grow their businesses online.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for charismatic, digital experts with 3-5 years of experience in the digital or tech industry. You have a passion for helping others and an ability to connect and coach others. We are looking for trainers, mentors and coaches with a teaching, coaching or mentoring background that will be able to connect on a 1:1 basis with individuals to mentor them virtually.  

Introducing Champion Mentors!

This work stream is led by the needs of the small business and no one session will be the same. We are looking for experts with a broad knowledge of different digital platforms, tools and strategies to help their mentees. You will need to think on your feet, draw your knowledge and experiences and apply them to the unique needs of your mentee. As such we are looking for most experienced, passionate and personable partners, trainers and experts to work on this project with us.

Where would I be based?

We’re looking all across SSA, including francophone countries!

Is there a language requirement?

You must speak a fluent level of English, and French for francophone countries. Being bilingual is also a benefit to supporting businesses in your community that might be less proficient in English.
