Job Description

The Community Workforce Readiness Accelerator for Major Projects (RAMP), is a pilot initiative that seeks to catalyze effective, inclusive workforce strategies to prepare and connect local workers to good jobs on large clean energy infrastructure and supply chain projects funded the Invest in America suite of laws (Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, Inflation Reduction Act, and CHIPS and Science Act) in target geographies. Historic clean energy investments are creating transformative opportunities for local economies and opening the door to labor and community engagement. At the heart of the initiative is a two year paid fellowship that will give fellows the opportunity to:
- Connect with energy employers in community to determine their current and future workforce needs, identify ways employers can access local and regional workforce resources to meet that demand, and identify and implement strategies to address gaps between workforce supply and demand.
- Engage a range of community stakeholders to identify gaps in programs, opportunities for new or scaled programming, and strategic ways that communities can address these challenges.
- Facilitate inclusive workforce development partnerships, e.g., recruiting, training, and wraparound support partnerships with institutions that serve marginalized and underrepresented populations.
- Secure commitments from partners to develop pre-apprenticeship programs with preferential entry to registered apprenticeship and recruit workers from underrepresented and disadvantaged populations into high-quality training and jobs.
- Work with stakeholders to implement commitments made in Community Benefits Plans and build bridges with communities on workforce issues.
- Develop compelling proposals for funding workforce partnerships and activities.
- Elevate tradeswomen’s issues as priorities in workforce activities, partnerships, and agreements.
