Organization: McKinsey Social Initiative

Position: Curriculum Design Consultant

Location: Gurgaon, Haryana

Minimum Eligibility Requirements:

Educational Qualification: Bachelor’s degree required, preferably with a master’s degree in curriculum design
> Minimum of 2 years in curriculum design experience
— Experience planning and scripting individual objective-driven lessons
— Experience developing active, practice-based learning experiences (e.g., simulations, role plays, etc.; not lectures and worksheets)
> Comfort with using technology to collaborate (e.g., Googledocs, Zoom video conference, etc.)
> Consistent, reliable access to the Internet is required

Preferred Experience:
— Experience teaching and/or designing instructional content for students from low-income communities
— Experience teaching and/or designing instructional materials for young adults between the ages of 18 and 29 years old

Skills required: 
— Proactive collaborator, willing to propose solutions and ideas to challenges based on expertise, debate their merits, and make final recommendations for lesson design
— Self-reflective and open to frequent feedback from MSI and employer and training partners
— Detail oriented (able to produce instructor-ready documents)

Program “Generation” Overview: Generation is a global youth employment program that helps provide young adults the opportunity to launch successful careers and change their life trajectories. Generation is the first initiative of McKinsey Social Initiative (MSI), a non-profit founded by McKinsey & Company. One important element of the initiative is designing and executing 4-12 week “bootcamp” trainings for young adults to prepare them for employment.

Job Overview: Curriculum design consultants to support us as we develop curriculum for pilot programs. The consultant would be responsible for developing instructional content for individual sessions in the bootcamp training under the guidance of lead curriculum designers for the program. This training will be grounded in relevant workplace activities and will include the technical skills and knowledge, behavioral skills, and mindsets that are required for success on the job and in support of long-term employment. Technical and behavioral skills and mindsets will be taught and practiced in an integrated way throughout the bootcamp training.

The work will be project-based, and ideally, designers will work full-time for the duration of the design process (~4-8 weeks), though part-time designers will also be considered. Work will be remote (no relocation required), though in-person feedback sessions may occur for those currently living in-country.

Roles and Responsibilities:
> Design the active learning experiences for each session
— Design practice-based, active learning content for each session (e.g., role plays, simulations, field experiences, etc.)
— Design all supporting materials for each session, including scripted facilitator guides, student handouts, instructor debrief guides for activities, etc. so that, at scale, a typical instructor could deliver the lesson effectively with limited or no additional support

> Throughout the process, work closely with MSI, employer partners, and other education partners (e.g., technical training experts) by obtaining feedback and iterating lessons accordingly

Application Process: Interested applicants should submit a (1) resume and (2) work samples of curricula and lesson plans they have designed by email to curriculum@mckinseysocialinitiative.org.

Last date to apply: 14 April 2017

Note: Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
