Social Worker (+/- 8 hours a week)

Poverty and precariousness in Switzerland is a rather invisible problem. Many people worry about their financial situation on a daily basis. They do their best to keep their heads above water. And in some cases, children are also affected.

Do you want to contribute to the fight against poverty in Switzerland? Would you like to work in a stimulating environment with a small group of enthusiastic, motivated and committed (professional) volunteers? Do you also want to act in accordance with the Muslim vision and philosophy: dignity, right, hope and respect for the human good?

Then we are looking for you!

You are a real contact person, warm and positive. As a volunteer in the social work team, you have conversations with people who submit requests for help. You like to dive into their situation and walk with them to find out what would best help them.
You do this with compassion and a spirit of equality. In addition, you are a star in administration, planning and organization.

You also have:
– Work experience and/or education in the social field is not necessary, but is an advantage.

– A talent for languages (e.g. Arabic, Bosnian, Turkish, Somali, Albanian) to speak also to people who do not fully master the national languages.

What do you get in return?
– A big happy family with a common dream 

– You make a positive contribution to the development of the community and society 

– A workplace that is inspiring and motivating on a social and spiritual level
