Volunteer Manager

Apply now

Aged between 25-75 and seeking a new challenge? Looking for something totally different? Something that changes lives?

You’ve come to the right place…

This is a Raleigh Expedition. It’s an exciting opportunity for you to work alongside and support young people to empower communities to create lasting change. An Expedition is a chance for young people from around the world to come together and create the future they want. For you, it’s a unique opportunity to use your skills and experience in roles based either on project site or in the Raleigh country office (what we call field base). Roles demand varying levels of skills and experience.

You could be living and working in a remote community, amongst some of the world’s most breath-taking landscapes; helping protect natural environments; or leading a trek through areas of a national park that are inaccessible to tourists.

Don’t fancy a leadership role on a project site? You could be supporting our Expeditions from our local offices; making sure volunteers have the equipment they need; providing medical assistance or bringing the Expedition to life though photography or words.

Under 25? Check out our opportunities for 17 – 24 year olds.

If you’re not yet 25, but you are Raleigh alumni, you can apply to be one of our support team at fieldbase.

Thinking about taking some time out? On a career break?

A recent graduate? Retired? Looking to us your skills in a different setting? We welcome people from every nationality, with any experience and from any background onto our programmes as volunteer managers.

Motivated? Adaptable? Passionate?

Some of our roles require specialist skills and others are open to everyone. Whatever your role, you should share our belief in creating change through young people. As volunteer managers, you are the driving force behind the Raleigh Expedition; with the help of our permanent in-country team, when you need it. With lots of volunteer positions available, there’s sure to be something to suit you.

Want to learn something new?

As well as supporting the young volunteers, we want you to develop personally too. Whether you’ve done something similar before or Raleigh is a completely new experience, every Expedition brings learning; new skills, new friends and the chance to immerse yourself in remote communities and stunning environments.
