Experience of coaching others would be an advantage but more importantly, we are looking for target-driven, enthusiastic people with a generosity of spirit and excellent verbal and face-to-face communication skills. We need people who are fantastic storytellers and who are able to captivate people’s interest, sign up donors and demonstrate how their support can make a true difference to the lives of the world’s poorest children.
