Assistant Volunteer Coordinator opportunity
We are looking for a new assistant co-ordinator at our projects in Mangochi District. It’s a voluntary role, but board and lodge is provided (possibly a small living allowance, depending on the candidate), with our NGO. The accommodation and projects are in a fantastic location on the edge of Lake Malawi and for the right person this is a great opportunity to play an important part in the success of our medical and healthcare, teaching and sports projects in surrounding rural communities.
The assistant volunteer co-ordinator works alongside our local staff in Malawi, supervising the volunteers and with responsibilities that include the management of staff, accounts and administration of the organisation’s programmes. It is hard work, but for someone with a passion for community development, who is motivated, organised, positive and energetic it’s also a very rewarding personal experience.
The ideal candidate will have a relevant background or some experience in co-ordinating volunteer programmes in Africa, community development, healthcare, or education.
We are looking for someone who is prepared to make a minimum commitment of 6 months, ideally a year and with a start date in January 2016 or earlier to be agreed. Applications for a later start date will also be considered.
If you know of anyone who this may be of interest to, then please let me know or ask them to email me a copy of their CV and a covering motivation letter, explaining what they feel makes them the right person for the role.
Thanks in advance for your time.
