GlobalGiving needs skilled individuals with international volunteering experience to travel internationally.
We want pro-active, positive people looking to challenge themselves, learn new skills, apply their knowledge and who are enthusiastic about making practical, sustained impact on the ground.
Take advantage of this unique opportunity to experience the frontline of development work and build highly transferable skills. We encourage applicants from all professional backgrounds and work experiences to apply. Whether you are early in your career, in-between roles, established at senior level or looking for something different and challenging, you can play an important role in directly assisting grassroots charities overseas.
What is the programme?
The Evaluation Programme helps GlobalGiving visit our partner organisations around the world and foster closer relationships. The Evaluation Programme trains skilled volunteers to become Project Evaluators and travel overseas for 2-10 weeks between June – November.
There is a project contribution of £650 if you are accepted onto this programme. This covers intensive professional training pre-departure, project coordination and support whilst in the field. Money for accommodation, flights, insurance, vaccinations and other in country expenses are not included in this. Please note that the training takes place in London, UK over three weekends (in March, April and June). The one to one support sessions are usually done in person but can be done remotely over Skype.
Project Evaluators complete in-depth organisational assessments and communications work for GlobalGiving partners all over the world. These assessments help our partners promote their work to new audiences, access relevant professional training, peer learning networks and resources during and after project visits and improve their effectiveness for the long term.
What does an Evaluation Programme volunteer do?
Prior to visits, volunteers review the project partner’s existing materials and activities on GlobalGiving and liaise directly with the organisations to plan the visit for maximum value. Partner visits consist of interviews, observations, text based research, analysis, and report writing.
