International Executive Service Corps
hace 4 días


IESC the International Executive Service Corps is a U.S.-based nonprofit that seeks private enterprise solutions to problems of poverty in developing countries and around the world.

By providing a mix of technical assistance and volunteer expert support, IESC works with emerging industries, financial institutions, and governments to stabilize economic environments, increase opportunity, and promote growth.

The USAID funded Workforce and Higher Access to Market (WHAM) Activity is a three-year program that aims to stimulate job creation by advancing Bosnia’s trade integration with and expansion into European Union and regional markets.

The activity will accomplish this primarily via grants with SMEs. This activity aims to increase exports by 30 percent for assisted enterprises and create over 1,000 new jobs, half of which are for youth and 20 percent for women.

WHAM improves the capacity of high-growth and exporting or export-ready small and medium enterprises via grants focused on three intervention areas :

  • Improved workforce in targeted sectors (metal processing, wood processing, and textiles / footwear).
  • Increased market access.
  • Improved product quality (including new technology related to quality management and certification) and capacity building.
  • Problem Statement and Objectives of the Assignment :

    It is important for manufacturing enterprises and entrepreneurs to ensure a new product’s design intent is met and any potential issues with the design are analyzed and addressed before production begins.

    This is especially necessary before an important sales pitch meeting. With computer aided design software (CAD), designers can test three-dimensional (3D) designs to a certain degree, right within the software.

    As good as digital simulations have become, there comes a point when it is quicker and easier to build a physical version of the final product to get user feedback on the design.

    Making functional or simply cosmetic prototypes is one tool for producing such feedback.

    In attempt to increase competitiveness of local SME’s and accelerate product development for the market and pre-production process, WHAM would like to organize a workshop for selected company representatives where they will be able to see and discuss some first-hand experiences in 3D printing for product development.

    The WHAM Activity is seeking an experienced 3D printing expert (product development and prototyping) with a proven track record of successful industrial-scale projects.

    Responsibilities :

  • Prepared tentative agenda for the workshop with 3 practical examples that workshop attendees could relate with; and,
  • One- to two-day workshop for company representatives that showcases the uses and new trends of 3D printing in an industrial environment.
  • Qualifications :

  • At least five years of total work experience, at least 2 years of which involve work experience in industrial 3D printing; and,
  • Proof of an adequate professional qualification.
  • Requested documents :

  • CV and list of projects separately
  • Expert Support :

    IESC provides comprehensive support to experts before, during, and after the anticipated assignment in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Support to include :

  • All accommodations, transport, meals, and incidental expenses throughout the duration of the assignment; and,
  • Translation and communications support.
