Company: Atlantis Project (AP). The AP is a leading education-abroad provider based in Washington D.C., USA. We are a dynamic and mission-driven education company that runs short-term hospital observation programs (Fellowships) for American undergraduate pre-med/pre-health students. Our students, called Fellows, travel to locations around the globe during college breaks, observe and follow doctors in local hospitals, and support the host communities. For more information on our programs see our website at www.atlantis-project.org.
Job: The AP is looking for a Site Manager to manage programs for a group of Fellows observing in a hospital in one of different sites in Portugal (Lisbon, Viana do Castelo, Barcelos, Porto) for May-1, 2017 to August-30, 2017 (these dates may change slightly, depending on program location). We will try to place the Site Manager according to their preference, but we cannot guarantee this.
The Site Manager will also take part in a two-week training course that will take place in early April. Any costs associated with training course will be paid by Atlantis Project, but Site Manager will not begin work until May-1. Upon successful completion of winter program, Site Manager will be strongly considered for subsequent projects. Typically the work requires 30-45 hours/week.
