The EU Aid Volunteers initiative provides volunteering opportunities to support communities in disaster-affected countries outside the EU in better preparing for crisis and responding when disaster strikes. As well as volunteering in the countries affected by disaster through full-time deployment, online volunteering is another way to get involved.
Online volunteering is a way of giving your time by completing a volunteering task through the internet at home, work or university. As online volunteering is done without leaving home, financial support is not provided. Online volunteers complement the EU Aid Volunteers initiative by doing practical tasks – in areas like research, technology, translation or design – that support EU Aid Volunteers projects on the ground to reach more people and make their work more effective. For each online assignment successfully completed, online volunteers receive a certificate of completion.
For the present vacancy, the Online Volunteer will support the GVC Global Protection Task Force and contribute to edit and proofread documents, such as training material, guidelines, manuals and technical notes.
This is a great opportunity for those who look to engage in a new sector such as humanitarian and development affairs at global level, and to contribute to the wellbeing of the people in need in all our area of intervention around the globe. The candidate, with its specific set of skills, will be able to provide a new perspective to the GVC Global Protection Task Force to ensure its goals.
