Recruitment & Training Associate


Become a Recruitment and Training Associate

You can join the Recruitment and Training Committee's 'Pool' as a Fundraising Associate. As an Associate, you will volunteer flexibly throughout the year, committing to a variety of activities in the short-term on an ad-hoc basis. Associates attend monthly committee meetings, and volunteer for specific task as their availability allows. This model enables the Recruitment and Training Committee to deploy volunteers responsively to grab opportunities and quickly address any emerging issues or risks.

The Committee will delegate self-contained projects to the pool, such as the delivery  of a specific training session, but you will also find yourself supporting Managers and Officers at key points in the year when the delivery of their responsibilities require all hands on deck - for example during Project Worker interviews. Lastly, sometimes more heads on a problem means a better result and each Committee has a number of sub-working groups addressing those more complex area, which you can also join. For example - developing a training syllabus.

Roles on this committee are fast-paced, demanding, and hugely engaging. For the majority of what new PWs experience before they actually land in East Africa: we make it happen. That is a challenge, and of course an enormous responsibility. But this is also a really exciting place to work, as you can really see how a student who perhaps expresses interest at a freshers’ fair, or comes along to an intro talk, turns into a confident, capable Project Worker who makes amazing things happen in our partner schools.
