One World Week is changing the way it operates.   We are becoming a virtual organisation run and staffed by volunteers. This will allow us to continue to deliver OWW on a sustainable basis

Can you help One World Week find national volunteers or a Co-ordinator?

 

Paid and Volunteer One World Week roles

Can you help One World Week find national volunteers or a Co-ordinator? If you are a OWW supporter already, could you consider taking on any of these roles yourself?

The National Coordinator

The National Coordinator will coordinate the volunteer team once it has formed. It is a flexible one day a week role which can be home based, with the potential of a hot-desk at a partner organisation. The role will also involve maintaining the Supporters’ Database and basic accounts. This paid role is for approximately 6 months to begin with.

Volunteer roles

We have a wide variety of volunteer roles for anyone willing to give the occasional bit of time to One World Week. Volunteers will ensure that the work the charity carries out is possible and will provide invaluable support to the trustee team. They can work from home or possibly hot-desk from a partner organisation office.
