Director of Human Resources

DUO for a JOB is an association that was founded in November 2012. It carries out intergenerational and intercultural mentoring by bringing young people with a migrant background into contact with professionals over 50 years of age for advice and support in their job search.

Through its mission, DUO for a JOB aims at reducing inequalities in access to the labour market for young people with a migrant background, to value our elders, to reinforce social cohesion and intergenerational action, and finally to fight racism by recreating social ties and local solidarity.

The organisation is active in Brussels, Wallonia, Flanders and Paris. It aims at opening branches in other countries in the years to come. The team is composed of 50 employees, and a team of 150 volunteers, in addition to the 1000 mentors (volunteers too). Since its founding, DUO for a JOB has matched 2800 duos, with a 72% positive outcome for the mentees (job, training or internship).
