Volunteer Roles

EWB-UK recruits volunteers in two ways. Our Volunteer Projects are time-bound projects which address immediate needs within the organisation, and are generally more suitable for busy individuals with specific skills. Our Volunteer Roles are longer term positions (up to a year) which require a more sustainable time commitment; these are ideal for anyone that wants to learn about running an organisation, but do not require a large amount of previous experience.

Please apply for the roles individually via the relevant page below.
