Social manager at foundations & charities
As a social manager at foundations and charities, your duties include challenging administrative tasks, for example, the management of social organisations, personnel and organisational development, marketing and fundraising, project development and project management, and quality management. Networking in political and social environments at the national and local level is an essential component of this work. Since foundations and charities are often dependent on donations and public funding, developing a fundraising strategy is one of the main challenges you face.
Social manager in non-profit organisations
As a social manager, your responsibilities include creating budget and cost plans as well as creating funding application. The ability to respond to other people, their personalities, and individual situations is also an essential part of this work. You design social processes, analyse social problems and emergencies, tailor concepts to changing target groups, and can build and maintain networks. Situated in the intersection between the business world and social affairs, you link social processes and developments with business indicators and controlling. Acquisition of funding and sponsorship is one of the increasingly important tasks in this field.
Home managers run social institutions such as children’s homes, residential schools, educational homes, homes for the disabled, retirement homes, and nursing homes. You are responsible for the organisation and management of the home, management of its employees, and the profitability of the business. As the home manager, you represent the respective institution externally and are responsible for ensuring that it runs smoothly.
