Venue; Pool Room, Civic Pub
Eventbrite book here
It’s tough to find a role in the international development and humanitarian sectors. This makes volunteering and internships increasingly popular and competitive ways to get a foot in the door. Join us for an insightful and fun conversation about volunteering, and network with your peers and colleagues from the sector.
For those looking to volunteer, what should you look for in a voluntary role and what can you expect to do? Has it been valuable for others? Does it give you the necessary experience to find a permanent role?
For those managing a volunteer program, what are the key criteria in selecting volunteers? What are the challenges in inducting, managing and supporting volunteers? What advice can you give those considering volunteering or internships?
Come along and hear first-hand from volunteers, interns and the people who manage them.
