As a result we’re currently recruiting core, long-term team members to help expand our work in Nepal.

If you are interested in one of the following positions then please contact Volunteer@IDVolunteers.org with your CV/Resume and a brief covering email before August 14, 2015.

If you have not already done so please also complete the following registration of interest form.

You can also use the same form to register your interest for future general volunteer opportunities.

Joint Operations Manager

We are currently seeking an Operations Manager to jointly lead our work in Nepal.

The successful candidate will divide overall Operational Management Responsibilities with our existing Operations Manager.

Responsibilities will be divided by task or by geographical location depending on how needs develop.

The successful candidate must be able to travel to Nepal no later than September 14, 2015, and must be able to commit to between 6 and 12 months.

A living stipend, flights and insurance are available for the right candidate.

Managment Team / Coordinators

We are currently seeking candidates to help with Volunteer Coordination, Media and Fundraising and Project Development & Coordination.

Nepal specific roles descriptions are still under development but a brief description of responsibilities is included below.

It should be noted that all Coordinators will be expected to spend some time working on projects. So they must be willing to get stuck in as needed.

Successful candidates will ideally be able to travel to Nepal before September 14, 2015. However, we also welcome hearing from people available beyond that date. All candidates must be able to commit to between 3 and 6 months.

Accommodation and work-day meals will be provided to all Coordinators. We may also be able to offer additional support to exceptional candidates.

As Volunteer Coordinator you’ll help ensure that we have our volunteer needs covered.

You’ll initially join our existing managers, and your fellow recruits, and help develop a solid core team that can drive our operations forward.

You’ll then help us establish how more diverse international volunteers can complement our projects, and ensure their safe and productive involvement. This will involve helping with recruitment, responding to email inquiries and providing general support to volunteers. You’ll also likely be asked to help with base management.

A HR background is useful for this role but the position would fit anyone with excellent organisation and people skills.

As Media Coordinator you’ll help us tell the stories of our work and our beneficiaries.

You’ll be asked to create, collect, organise and share photographs, profiles and other materials we can use to communicate our projects and their impacts.

Initially you’ll help our UK team by organising and providing content. However, the ideal candidate would also be able to directly help raise more awareness and funding too.

Related experience is preferred for this position but clear written communications and attention to detail are the most important.

As a Project Coordinator you’ll help us assess, plan, execute and document projects.

Initially you’ll help execute existing projects using a mix of community volunteers, paid local workers and your fellow core-team members.

You’ll then help identify and develop new projects, and help us determine how more diverse international volunteers can complement their execution. In all cases you’ll also create project documentation and submit this to our UK team.

A range of skill-sets could be useful in this role, as long as there is an ability to apply them to project development and execution. For example, construction and engineering are always useful, but a background in education, social-care, health, etc is also great).

In all cases excellent organisation and people skills are essential.
