Careers at VSO

Thank you for taking an interest in working at VSO

We don't just go to work at VSO.

We're transforming the way development is done by putting people at the heart of the change. 

When you join VSO, you'll make an incredible difference to the most marginalised in society, to your colleagues, to our volunteers. We’re looking for boldness, integrity, and a lot of enthusiasm.

Looking for a challenge? VSO has ambitious targets to reach 5 million people in the next 3 years across Africa and Asia. Our work changes lives. Would you like to be part of it?

About VSO

VSO is the world’s leading international development charity that works through volunteers to create a fair world for everyone. Looking for volunteer opportunities? 

At VSO we pride ourselves on doing development differently. We don't send aid, but create long-lasting change in some of the world’s poorest regions by passing on skills and experience so the poorest and most marginalised can help themselves.

Right now, VSO is bringing justice to rape survivors in Pakistan, building disaster prevention mechanisms in Mozambique, ending stigma against disabled children in Ethiopia and tackling the youth skills gap in Uganda and Bangladesh.

Additional benefits

In return for your enthusiasm, energy and time, we can offer flexible working policies, working from home days, generous annual leave, and opportunities for professional development, including a range of online self-study modules, coaching and workshops. There may also be occasional international travel.
