What are we looking for?
Raizcorp is currently looking for your background, experience and deep love for business (specifically business strategy) to join our fiercely caring team of guides (our term for our business coaches). You do not have to be a qualified coach when you apply for this role. What we really need is your passion for business, your 15-plus years of experience in business and entrepreneurship, as well as a strong understanding of business strategy. We will teach you how to guide entrepreneurs in their businesses.
A strategy guide (whose currency is care) transfers skills and knowledge that offer business growth to entrepreneurs. We’re looking for someone who not only is a strong business all-rounder (strategy, sales, marketing and finance) but someone who also has a deep, nurturing love for people.
What does a Strategy Guide do?
The successful candidate will be a full-time business coach working from our offices and seeing entrepreneurs in person (during Covid-19 restrictions, interactions take place via MS Teams and Zoom). You will receive a portfolio of entrepreneurs who you will grow, guide and develop throughout the course of their journey with Raizcorp. This is not consultancy work, but rather a carefully designed programme akin to a coaching intervention. We will provide you with a qualification in our guiding methodology which is internationally recognised. You will not do for the entrepreneur but rather help them do for themselves.
What experience is preferred?
Strong experience over at least four differing industries is preferred. You do not need to be an experienced coach; we will give you detailed, world-class training to help you effectively coach entrepreneurs. You do need to have a real interest in learning how to be a coach and helping people to uncover their own potential.
What kind of personality will excel in this role?
The ideal candidate is someone with a deep care and understanding for people. Someone with heart. We find that great guides are often people with a need to give back and help others on their entrepreneurial journey. This is also a great role for someone considering a change in career as it will certainly be different to any other role you have held before.
