London HQ move
Please note that in June 2013, VSO is moving its headquarters and UK operations to Kingston-Upon-Thames, Greater London (subject to contract) and will affect all London based roles. This move is part of VSO's WorkingSmarter initiative which is to enable employees to use more virtual working methods and to use the office space more flexibly, saving money to be put back into our programmes to really impact the fight against poverty. This includes flexible approaches to working including team working zones, remote/home working and hotdesking.
