If you would like to get involved in our work, you can volunteer your time and skills as an office volunteer.  Based in one of our offices across the world, you’ll have the option to volunteer for as many or as few days as suits you. You can also volunteer remotely – for example, as a coach or mentor, research assistant or proof-reader.

We’re committed to developing the skills, experience and employability of our volunteers, wherever they volunteer for us, and we welcome office volunteers in any of the countries in which we operate.

You’ll receive training and supervision from a member of our staff when you start, and ongoing development and support throughout your time with us.

We particularly welcome volunteers who are interested in international development work, or who have skills in the following areas:

  • Copywriting and proofreading
  • Fundraising and writing funding bids
  • Data analysis
  • Report-writing
  • Human resources support
  • Research
  • Selecting volunteers or students for overseas placements
  • Translation
  • Coaching or mentoring
  • Office administration and finance
  • Event management
