CloudFactory Academy exists to build one million leaders worth following. The Academy provides learning, development, and service programs that are aimed at developing and growing our global workforce to both effectively deliver work for our clients, and to maximize their own personal leadership potential. The Academy has a holistic approach to scaling leaders which involves combining three main elements together into a single experience -

Earning - where we support the CloudWorkers with opportunities to earning on CloudFactory workstreams delivering great work for clients;

Learning - where we engage our workforce in personal and professional growth and development programs;

Serving - where we create platforms for the workforce to be able to give back to their communities in a meaningful and impactful way.

Role Overview:

This role has regional (continental) responsibility for coordinating and delivering the long term community and development experience of the CW's at CloudFactory. They work to ensure the coordination and communication of the opportunities that exist for the workforce within CloudFactory Academy, and partner with the workforce to create belonging and connection between cloud workers and CloudFactory and between cloud workers and cloud workers. The focus is on orchestrating community activity, community service projects, and meaningful and engaging events. They will partner with our Cloud workers to ensure they know where to access ongoing resources, training, coaching and also partner to plan activities and events that build cohesion and community. They will be responsible for both the workforce and the community management team in one region which ultimately has the primary relationship with the cloud workers within CloudFactory Academy.
