Our International Volunteering Programme is designed for individuals who are looking to develop work experience in the charity/Non-Governmental Organisation sector in the UK. The program is a voluntary role and you’ll be required to get accommodation within Canterbury and fund your living expenses or live with a host family if you have relatives here.
Our International Volunteering Programme (IVP) allows you to gain first-hand experience in the practical operations of an international Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) and provides you the opportunity to develop transferable skills such as teamwork, fundraising and communication.
Interns on our International Volunteers Programme work primarily at our Processing Centre in Canterbury, in various support roles as Support Officers and are involved in a variety of tasks including but not limited to; processing (cataloguing, sorting and packing donated materials), charity shop sales (valuing and listing donated materials for sale) and tech refurbishing. You will also have the opportunity to complete a range of training and tasks in marketing, and fundraising during the duration of the programme.
We have now received enough applications for September 2022 start. We’ll begin accepting applications for September 2023 in April 2023.
