In delivering our work, VSO draws particularly on the Sustainable Development Goals and the principles of universality and leaving no-one behind.

You will have the chance to directly facilitate training of VSO volunteers from the UK. You'll work alongside a team including staff, other volunteers and returned VSO volunteers to deliver high-impact, dynamic and fun training programmes that will prepare people to adjust to life as a VSO volunteer, and make the biggest possible impact through their placements.
