VSO is the world’s leading international development organisation that works through volunteers to fight poverty. Working in 24 countries around the world, our unique role in international development is to place committed volunteers with carefully selected organizations where their skills can have the greatest impact. As a VSO volunteer, you’ll live and work in some of the world’s poorest communities. By sharing your unique skills and experience you’ll help generate new ideas and new ways of doing things, helping the communities you work in lift themselves out of poverty. We’re not about delivering quick fixes, but instead, we focus on long-lasting, sustainable change, that will impact generations to come. Join us as a VSO volunteer and help us work towards our vision of a world without poverty.

The objective of the placement is to transfer skills and knowledge to pediatric and neonatal department staff specifically and hospital staff in general in order to improve health outcomes and increase the quality of services in local health facilities.
You will directly contribute to improved accessibility and availability of newborn health services and support clinical supervision and the management of newborn health services in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and where possible surrounding health facilities/units.


These objectives are subject to improvement/modification after discussion with the project manager as well as the implementing partner. We are looking to strengthen our talent pool for Neonatal nurses to be able to respond to upcoming demand. Countries that need Neonatal nurse volunteers are: Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda. However, more Neonatal volunteer jobs will be coming up later too.

• Ability to be open-minded and respectful
• Ability to be resilient and adaptive to new situations
• Ability to facilitate positive change and build sustainable working relationships
• Ability to seek and share knowledge


Equal Opportunities


VSO promotes equal opportunities and values a diverse workforce.


Allowance


As a VSO volunteer, you will be sharing your skills with local communities on a full time basis. VSO will cover your travel, vaccinations, accommodation, and medical insurance costs, along with a local living allowance which will be paid in local currency. This allowance meets reasonable living expenses in country, but will not be enough to send money home. You will also receive some financial support to contribute to your on-going expenses at home.


Accommodation


VSO works with some of the poorest communities in the world which means accommodation varies and will be basic.


Some background about VSO


Much has changed since VSO started 60 years ago. We’ve gone from being a UK charity to a truly global development organisation. In 2016/2017 alone, we worked with over 7,000 volunteers from all over the world and from all backgrounds to deliver services that had an impact on the lives of almost 2.6 million people in the 24 countries where we work. Our programmes focus on the areas of health, education and livelihoods, with an increasing emphasis on resilience building, social accountability, gender and social inclusion. We believe progress is only possible when we work together and that strong partnerships are crucial to delivering positive change. That’s why we work with over 500 partner organisations, from local and national governments, to businesses, NGOs, funders, charities and community groups. Currently, over 30% of our people are recruited from within the country in which they work, and we continue to grow the share of community and national volunteers involved in our programmes. We also send increasing numbers of volunteers from one developing country to another. However, our vision has remained the same; to build a world without poverty.
