Empowering Mums to be Superheroes at home and work!
Economic Change CIC is a social enterprise on a mission for mums
The Salesforce Supermums Programme was borne out of a shared understanding of the challenges that working Mums face, matched with a social need for a flexible, reliable and dedicated workforce and the needs of our charity and not for profit customers. We are all about fostering economic change for our team and our clients.
We offer women with children the chance to retrain in Salesforce Administration and access relevant employment opportunities in a flexible way that fits around their families.
Our MD, and Mum of two, Heather Black feels passionately about helping women back to work.
On a practical level, Salesforce Administrators help organisations to build a CRM (Customer Relationship Management Database) across any business department whether it’s HR, Sales, Marketing, Service Delivery or Finance. If you have a head for business or charity processes, enjoy tinkering with IT systems and tidying up people’s data, processes and reports to help them perform better, then this role could be perfect for you! You can do Salesforce Administration work day or night, depending on requirements.
A Salesforce administrator role is a great place to start your career as it gives you the foundation knowledge in the system. You can learn how to build databases with clicks, so you don’t need any coding expertise. All you need is a good head for business (and/or) charities, the ability to get to grips with IT, and a desire to get stuck in and learn something new and challenging.
Objectives of the Salesforce Supermums Programme
Our 6 month programme trains mums up as proficient, experienced, confident and certified Salesforce Administrators. It consists of:
Online and Virtual Training – We have developed a curriculum based around a combination of weekly webinars and online learning to cover the basics of business analysis, project management, change management and the topics in the Salesforce 201 Administrator Course. Training is delivered by our in-house team, Salesforce.com staff and using online learning resources – Trailhead and Salesforce University. We have set up an established an online learning community for learners to access material, upload homework, and liaise with trainers and mentors.
Knowledge Sharing – We provide insight into the practical application of the learning, different system scenarios and online discussions about capabilities of Salesforce and Third Party apps via our hosted webinars and our dedicated online learning community to get an understanding about what’s possible.
Practical Work Experience – We will engage trainees in practical unpaid work experience on CRM implementation projects. These projects will be for charities that are unable to afford the full consultancy fees. Trainees must successfully complete the pre-learning modules to participate. All work experience will be delivered virtually by trainees.
Mentoring – Trainees will receive mentoring support from our in-house experienced Salesforce Consultants who will take on the role of reviewing the homework, discussing the learning and career opportunities and provide constructive support during the work experience.
Progression Support – We will continue to give mums access to our online community to enable them to access resources and connect and support their peers. They can also participate in future webinars to refresh or further their knowledge and expertise, and register interest in job opportunities that have been identified by our team.
