The Company
We are a fast-growing non-profit social enterprise with offices in the Netherlands, Portugal, South Africa,  India, Kenya, and Ethiopia. Triggerise builds digital platforms that motivate users - primarily young women and adolescent girls - to make positive choices. We work together with local communities and use nudges like reminders, discounts and reward points to encourage our users to access and use health products and services. We also support our users in becoming entrepreneurs and adding value to their economies.

All of our Triggerise offices are comfortable, open spaces filled with enthusiastic, international colleagues. Whether you are working from our biggest office in Nairobi, the fast-growing office in Addis, or from home, our people are young and our culture is global and dynamic. Our work environment is fast-paced, informal, and friendly. 

The Job

Triggerise is growing really fast and we need you to make sure that new people learn what they need to learn but also to enable the organisation, managers and individuals to develop the skills we will need to grow even further. You will train and manage the Learning & Development Officer and together you have a chance to shape this department.

This is what we’ll ask you to do: 

  • Design, build and execute an onboarding programme that can be tailored to different roles. At the end of this programme new people have the practical skills and knowledge they need, but more importantly, they are part of our culture and team. 
  • Build and execute a management training programme that ensures that all our managers lead their teams effectively and in line with our vision of independent, capable employees and teams. 
  • Support managers and employees with individual career development paths. 
  • Organise and execute ad hoc organisational training needs
  • Measure your impact and report on it

About You

You know how people learn things and can turn your knowledge into practical training programmes. You are passionate about seeing people grow and learn. You are creative, independent and have a vision on how this should be done. At the same time, you don’t mind getting your hands dirty when we need to design or give our own training.


  • Minimum Bachelor’s degree in Human Resources, Business Administrations, Organisational Psychology or related field or equivalent working experience
  • 5 years in a similar role
  • You have significant experience designing online and in person training
  • It’s a big plus if you have built an organisation learning programme before
