Volunteer opportunities are now open in Cambodia, Fiji, Philippines and Vanuatu.

What you can do
We have volunteer jobs in Asia and the Pacific in communications and marketing; community development; disaster management, finance, health and human resources.

From strengthening blood services in Vanuatu to developing ecotourism in Cambodia, to promoting healthy lifestyles programs in Fiji; the opportunities to volunteer overseas are as diverse as the locations they are based in. Find out how your skills can help.

Assignments commence:
September 2015 (most assignments from 6-12 months)

Why volunteer abroad?
It's an experience that will challenge you - both personally and professionally - but the rewards are immense. You will enrich your career with new skills and experience, develop personally, build lasting friendships and experience a country and a culture as no tourist or traveller ever could.

How we support you
Living allowances, airfares, insurance, training, health and in-country support. Learn more
