The UK Project Officer role will sit within the Volunteer Development Team, which works to support young people in the UK aged 18-25 through the pre-departure phase of ICS. This includes the stages of assessment, logistical preparation and training before going on placements overseas. You’ll be a core member of our fast-paced and dedicated team, inspiring and supporting young people from a diverse range of backgrounds to begin their journey to active citizenship.
As Project Support Officer you will be responsible for the administrative elements of the selection process, pre-departure and Action at Home phases of the ICS volunteer journey. You will also be the main point of contact for candidates before the selection process to ensure that they are prepared for the day and equipped with information on the ICS programme.
Outside of this focus, the UK Project Officer will provide wider administrative and logistical support to Restless Development UK’s other projects (approximately 10%). You’ll be a strong communicator who is well-organised, has excellent administration skills, and a passion for supporting young people to lead change, and coordinating events.
