Developing a Career in International Development

We know it can be frustrating trying to develop a career in this much sought after sector, especially when organisations require prior experience; be it institutional donor management, fieldwork or capacity building of overseas recipients. Please don't let this put you off, we would strongly recommend considering a volunteer assignment as a way to gain this highly relevant experience. It’s no coincidence that 22% of AfID volunteers now work full-time in the charity sector, as even a short 2-3 week assignment will catch the eye and reassure these employers of your commitment and ability to navigate the diverse stakeholder contexts.  It’s worth noting all AfID's assignments are individually tailored to the volunteers own preferences, skills and availability. For FAQs please visit the afid website
Attending one of the AfID Workshops also offers invaluable insights, explaining sector jargon and demonstrating the ways accountants can navigate complex environments, in a fun and informative way. It also presents a great networking opportunity with 25 other likeminded accountants AfID’s founder and ex-Oxfam FD in attendance.
