Rahul Nainwal, Co- Founder & Director of JobsForGood, wanted to pursue an MBA with a difference. He was on the lookout for a degree that would help him do something valuable for society. Rahul found Dr. Kurien’s ideology, of ‘infusing professional management skills in community owned enterprises’ interesting and decided to join IRMA.
Shalabh Sahai, Co-Founder & Director of JobsForGood is an alumnus of the prestigious Rural Management programme at IRMA. He joined IRMA at the height of the IT Boom in India however; he was dismayed at how distant the IT revolution remained from the social sector. ‘How can we bridge the two?’ was the question that worried Shalabh and fuelled long days of debate, deliberation and dreaming.
Shalabh and Rahul, close friends and classmates at IRMA, then took it upon themselves to source skills and smiles for the social sector. Thus iVolunteer was born as the first and only one of its kind in India, a social enterprise that promotes volunteering.
They soon realised that although there was a pleasing number of people wanting to engage as full time professionals in the social sector, a string of start-ups were all competing for the same talent pool. Thus JobsForGood was founded in 2007, with a clear objective of enabling social enterprises to leverage human capital towards their mission.
Its services were defined into 2 distinct streams - search and selection to help social enterprises recruit appropriate talent; and, HR Consulting to develop organisational systems and sector knowledge.
Today JobsForGood reaches out to and supports NGOs and social enterprises across India through its offices in Delhi and Mumbai.
In April 2011, Aparna joined iVolunteer as the Head of Human Resources and in November 2011 took over the role of heading operations for JobsForGood. The uniqueness of a social enterprise offering recruitment and HR advisory solutions to NGOs and social enterprises prompted her to take on this challenge. Apart from her continued career in strategic HR, she enjoys volunteering and doing her bit for a few social causes.
In her career spanning over 14 years, she has a well grounded experience in Human Resource Management. A post graduate in Human Resources Development Management from University of Mumbai, Aparna has exposure in diverse companies ranging from HR consulting, manufacturing, and architecture to name a few.
Overall, the JobsForGood team is made up of young and enthusiastic professionals with prior experience & expertise in recruitment for a varied industries and functions such as - banking and financial services, business consulting, BPO, IT, management functions & other services.
