SendME: current overseas vacancies

SendME aims to mobilise UK volunteers with the right skills to match needs at our partner organisations, helping them to have a bigger impact on the people they serve. 

SendME is not designed to be a guided experience or short term package and we therefore expect volunteers to take a lot of responsibility for managing their own time and making their placement a success. You will need to be confident that you can cope with living in the Middle East and be prepared to accept the challenges that come with it. You will be supported by Embrace and a local partner, but you will be expected to make most of the practical arrangements yourself.

See our SendME FAQ for more information and to apply for any of these vacancies, download the application form here.
