We are looking for motivated, energetic individuals (at any career stage) who want to go out of their comfort zone. Passionate about development/Africa? Want to do something different and feel you have something to offer? We want to hear from you!

There are two types of role on offer:

  • Experienced volunteer: short-term placement of minimum 2 weeks, to work on a bespoke project (see areas below). Has circa 5+ years professional experience in any sector

  • Volunteer placement: minimum 3-month placement for a bespoke project / role (see areas below). Ideal for a graduate or MBA student looking to gain practical experience on the ground.

The specific areas around which we hope to tailor our roles (depending on the individual) include:
  • Operations (finance, auditing, services etc)
  • Risk management & corporate governance
  • Technology
  • Strategy & communications
  • Social performance

If you feel you have something to offer in all/any of these areas, we would love to hear from you.
