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 2015 and wish to build a panel of suitably qualified, prepared candidates ready for placement.
