    Some background about VSO

    Much has changed since VSO started 60 years ago. We’ve gone from being a UK charity to a truly global development organisation. In 2016/2017 alone, we worked with over 7,000 volunteers from all over the world and from all backgrounds to deliver services that had an impact on the lives of almost 2.6 million people in the 24 countries where we work. Our programmes focus on the areas of health, education and livelihoods, with an increasing emphasis on resilience building, social accountability, gender and social inclusion. We believe progress is only possible when we work together and that strong partnerships are crucial to delivering positive change. That’s why we work with over 500 partner organisations, from local and national governments, to businesses, NGOs, funders, charities and community groups. Currently, over 30% of our people are recruited from within the country in which they work, and we continue to grow the share of community and national volunteers involved in our programmes. We also send increasing numbers of volunteers from one developing country to another. However, our vision has remained the same; to build a world without poverty.

    Thank you for taking an interest in working at VSO.
    VSO does development differently. We fight poverty not by sending aid, but by working through volunteers and partners to create long-lasting change in some of the world’s poorest regions.
    Right now, I’m looking for a Digital Manager to power the next phase of VSO’s digital development and build organisational understanding of agile project management.

    Role overview

    You’ll be joining us at an exciting time. We have just relaunched the VSO website with personalisation technology that’s still in its infancy, our email and social channels need review, and there are multiple projects emerging across the organisation that require an agile, digital mindset to succeed.

    You’ll provide specialist consultancy and advice to help colleagues engage with digital, and manage a wide range of projects to help present VSO as a leader in volunteering-focused development practices.
    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.

    Our work changes lives. I hope you’ll like to be a part of it.
