You will be part of Generation – Generation is the world’s largest, fastest scaling global employment program, providing young and mid-career adults with the opportunity to launch successful careers and change their life trajectories. Our goal is to deliver for our learners and employers simultaneously: supporting the personal and financial well-being of our graduates, while helping businesses make entry-level hires who are higher productivity, higher quality, retain longer, and are faster to promotion than peers. Founded by McKinsey & Company, Generation is its own legal non-profit entity active in 7 countries to date – USA, Kenya, Spain, Mexico, India, Hong Kong, and Singapore – and is actively launching additional sites.
Generation programs are structured as intensive bootcamps ranging from 3–12 weeks. The programs offer students integrated technical, behavioral, mindset, and employment skills training, mentorship support and community services as well as job-placement support when they graduate.
Generation’s programmatic approach includes operating 3–12 week “bootcamp” trainings for young adults to prepare them for employment in a specific profession. The Generation curriculum team designs curricula for the “bootcamps” across our countries and professions. Trainings are based on the technical and behavioral skills and mindsets specific to a given profession determined by our team’s analysis. Technical and behavioral skills and mindsets are taught and practiced in an integrated way throughout the bootcamp training.
We are seeking a Curriculum & Instruction Lead to manage curriculum design and implementation for a large partnership across several countries in the Middle East region. You will work closely with our Global Curriculum & Instruction team to bring the methodology to life in this new partnership and geography. This role is suited for an experienced educational project manager who is excited to be at the cutting-edge of workforce development and to work in a fast-paced, ever-changing, global environment.
The role is based in Dubai, with travel in the region (to include the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia). Arabic fluency strongly preferred.
Interested applicants should submit a resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Worldwide, more than 75 million young people are unemployed. But many employers can’t find people with the skills they need for entry-level jobs. Generation was created in 2014 to help bridge this gap—at speed and scale.
We’re building a skills-training methodology that can serve hundreds of thousands, and eventually millions, of young people a year. And we’re building proof that this training creates real business outcomes for employers, and lasting career impact for trainees—so everyone has the incentive to invest in skills. Our goal is to help our students achieve personal and professional success—and fundamentally change their life trajectories. Generation programs prepare unemployed or underemployed young people, aged 18 to 29, for jobs in four sectors: healthcare, technology, retail/sales, and skilled trades.
Today, Generation is active in nine countries—78 cities and 195+ sites—with diverse social, economic and labor-market contexts.
