Concrete and Tilt-up Working Foreman

Join the Extollo team and gain a unique hands-on opportunity to equip Haitians in the construction industry through the development and construction of tilt-up concrete houses and panelized security walls. Extollo is a social-good business that operates a construction training center in Haiti and is in the process of introducing tilt-up technology to Haiti by first developing and building prototype concrete tilt-up houses and security walls. 

 

This is a great opportunity for someone who is looking for a very unique experience where they can use their skills and knowledge to help Haitians build a stronger Haiti. We’re looking for a person of high character who loves adventure, wants to experience and learn from a different culture, is experienced in concrete and/or tilt-up construction - especially place and finish concrete - and who enjoys working with their hands to teach and equip others so they can reach their potential. This person will work with Sherman Balch of Balch Enterprises, a 29-year member of the Tilt-Up Concrete Association, past President of the TCA, and a recipient of The Peter Courtois Memorial Award.

We are looking for professionals who can relocate to our safe and comfortable 5 acre campus in Haiti, or give anywhere from 2 to 4 (or more) weeks at a time and ideally travel to our campus in Haiti a few times a year to keep continuity. Anyone new to Extollo will first live/work on campus for 2 weeks so that they can get an honest taste of what it's like without making a longer time commitment.

For those up for the challenge, this may be the most difficult, fulfilling, and rewarding work you will ever do. Join us in bringing the benefits of tilt-up construction to the nation of Haiti and helping give those living in extreme poverty a better future. 

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 competitive 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.
