We make it possible for you to serve the society.
And also pay for this!

Why work with us

Something that ails our society the most is irrationality. Promoting rationality in every sphere of life – private public, polity – is what we invite you to join us in.

In a nutshell, SPRAT works to promote scientific temper, spirit of inquiry and inter-faith harmony. And to foster the empowerment of underprivileged sections of the society, such as minorities, women, Dalits etc through scientific and constitutional instruments.

We are techno-savvy and work on the Office365 cloud, thanks to the patronage of Microsoft, Google, AutoDESK and others.

Do check out our TARKIK SADAN residential cum office campus, eliminating your boarding, lodging, transport, internet, laundry, healthy recreation and above all security worries, and yet offering exciting careers in a range of disciplines. For the workaholic, in return for additional work in evenings, these subsidized facilities can come for free.

SPRAT – a national award winning NGO registered in 2002 – was led by distinguished citizens, and run in transparent, professional and democratic manner. It is compassionate, clean and financially sound and stable.

Check its governors, funders, and supporters. Thanks to their help SPRAT could help over 150 thousand youth and women. Check its impact.

And for the satisfaction of directly serving the society
– and not enriching some rich capitalist.

H R Policy

Our HR policy is egalitarian and contemporary, democratic and productivity-centred. We make work fun and quintessentially empowering. We have zero tolerance for dishonesty, financial impropriety, non-productivity, nepotism, corruption, gender, religion or caste bias, superstition and communalism. We respect you as partners in shared causes.

COMPENSATION

We have given a range for the Compensation.  We offer guaranteed monthly increments as well as ad-hoc pay jumps and promotions based on transparent and participative performance assessment. But remember that most people come to us for the enormous learning they receive here.

Please estimate your compensation in the given range at the level of your experience and education against the provided range: the lower the experience the lower in the range you are fixed. Also the extent of your education may influence your fixation in this range.

For exceptional candidates that possess extra talents / skills – or lack in some – we may readjust the portfolio suitably. Take your chance. And we can also guarantee long term growth, status and promotions commensurate with guaranteed performance and stability. For very senior positions SPRAT is open to signing a MOU linking a part of their compensation with the resources they may mobilize.

In special cases employees willing to contribute productivity of 2.5 hours in the evening, an extra allowance can be considered.

BOARDING AND LODGING

We can offer subsidized boarding, lodging and transport to maximize your real income, and minimize your insecurity.

Interestingly we encourage couples to join together – plausibly in separate functions and grades. To them we may provide exclusive functional accommodation.

IMPORTANT TERMS

Typically, we work from 10:00 to 6:30, Mon-Sat. Late sitting and holiday working are not encouraged.

Additionally, you enjoy weekly offs, regular leaves, holidays, leave encashment, accident insurance, small loans etc. Of course, all costs incurred in the line of duty are reimbursed in full.

In exceptional cases – and where the work is quantifiable and stand-alone – we may allow work from home – specially if you are handling two jobs, are handicapped or pregnant.

Although SPRAT usually offers lifetime employment, it expects at least 1-3 years’ lock-in commitment depending on contract terms, to be secured with a security deposit of money or valuable and acceptable documents, or any other security.

Where experience is mentioned but you have none, consider applying for our Job-linked Internships under INTERNSHIP menu.

KNOWLEDGE CULTURE

But our star performers regard the unique learning they receive here as of the greatest value: Weekly Knowledge Meetings, Monthly Workshops, power use of computers and Office365, periodic fun-filled study tours. No wonder students from around India and abroad also intern with us.

Our Projects

Check SPRAT’s Programmes and Projects. Take note that it is poised to launch several major new initiatives under the aegis of the TARKIK SADAN / CARAVAN ACADEMY at Matar, some 30 KMs from Ahmedabad. Do check on the wide-ranging services it is going to launch. Do not hesitate to query.

Mostly you are positioned at Head Office at Paldi, Ahmedabad, at Tarkik Sadan at Matar or at Muskaan at Juhapura, Ahmedabad. Travelling is minimal and funded.

Recruitment process

Typically this is how it works:

  1. You will make doubly sure that SPRAT is where you really wanted to be, and that its world-view matches yours own.
  2. You study and confirm your eligibility: you may be eligible for more than one position, or for a senior or junior grade. You may also indicate a primary and a secondary preference when you fill in our official web form accessed through a link given below.
  3. You ascertain if our compensation and perks suit you. You can expect some negotiation if you offer extra time, or assume additional responsibilities from home.
  4. You fill in the Application Form. Remember, this is half your test! Which is why we mail a copy of your filled form: it will come handy for your own future use.
  5. We may arrange for your Quiz – a MCQ test – under our Recruitment Management System [RMS], either at SPRAT or perhaps from your home, online.
  6. We suppose you will do well. Then expect a call for an interview in two days of filling the application form.
  7. Of course, you have a right of appeal for renegotiation and reassessment on fair grounds.
