Join the Extollo International team in Haiti and gain a unique opportunity to equip Haitians in the auto care industry and mentor students to be auto care professionals of excellence. Extollo International is a social-good business that operates a construction training center in Haiti and is in the process of building an auto care facility and a training program in auto repair and maintenance.

We’re looking for a person of high character who loves adventure, is experienced in auto care and who enjoys working with their hands to teach and equip others so they can reach their potential.

 

The Auto Mechanic will lead the maintenance and repair of Extollo’s vehicle fleet along with training, coaching, and mentoring Haitian staff and students in the trade. The Auto Mechanic ensures projects are well planned and organized, run safely, and executed efficiently in collaboration with the General Manager and General Contractor.

Extollo offers a compensation package that includes comfortable housing, all utilities including internet, 24-hour security, free lunch each weekday, use of an Extollo vehicle (shared), and a modest salary. Those semi retired or fully retired may find this to be a great opportunity to share their experience with those who need it the most. We prefer a 60 day to 6 month commitment, but we are open to other arrangements for the right person(s).
