2019 Volunteer Programme Vacancies
VC receives requests for volunteers from our partners in the developing world who identify needs for particular skills in their projects that cannot be fulfilled locally. We then recruit, train, and place suitable candidates for these roles. Together with the partner we endeavour to source funding for the specific project into which the volunteer will be employed. These recruits are often graduates of the VC training course.
We have a range of needs identified by our partners in the field, most ranging from 12-36 months, some specialised and some general. We are currently recruiting for projects which will commence in 2019 and wish to build a panel of suitably qualified, prepared candidates ready for placement.

|Occupational Therapist – Haiti|
|Our partner in Port au Prince, Haiti seeks a qualified Occupational Therapist for it’s Special Needs Programme. The Programme provides residential, educational and therapeutic services to children and adults with physical and neurological disabilities and their families. It does so with the stated aim of achieving participation, equality and full human rights for individuals with disability in Haiti, where poverty, prejudice and a lack of state services can often lead to the neglect and abandonment of this vulnerable population. In addition to its core activities, the Special Needs Programme uses training, advocacy and partnership arrangements with like-minded organisations to work towards this aim.|
