Recruiting Organization: Second Tree

We are looking for volunteers who can commit for a minimum of 10 weeks, with adaptable profiles and who have the enthusiasm and energy we need to provide support in various areas across the organisation.

In this generalist role, you will find yourself responsible for a variety of tasks; helping to ensure that both our programme activities and day-to-day operations run smoothly. Second Tree works in a transparent way, in a challenging and changeable situation in the field; therefore, an ability to learn quickly and be open to feedback is vital.

The possible tasks included below are not exhaustive or rigidly defined; an exact role profile is dependent on the skill set of individual applicants. An average day might see you talking to students in a camp to tell them about a new class, or supporting in the writing of a grant proposal. Tasks could loosely fall within 4 key areas:


  • Supporting programme coordinators in maintaining the day to day running of their activities with the Youth Wellbeing or Adult Education Programmes
  • Supporting our children’s teachers or workshop facilitators in the planning or delivery of classes or excursions outside of camps
  • Communicating key messages about our programmes to our students in camps or urban areas

Admin, Finance & Logistics

  • Supporting the management in liaising with external partners
  • Maintaining organisation wide financial processes
  • Coordinating the arrival and housing of incoming volunteer


  • Supporting the planning and implementation of Second Tree’s fundraising initiatives, such as campaigns
  • Organising and maintaining regular communications with Second Tree’s donors (newsletters, thank you letters)
  • Supporting in the identification of relevant grants
  • Supporting in grant writing activities

Digital communication

  • Contributing to the written/visual content of Second Tree’s social media output
  • Developing social media strategies to expand our reach and impact
  • Producing regular reports on performance
  • Website maintenance

Skills desired:

While there are no experience or skill-specific applicant requirements for this position, candidates must:

  • Be accountable and efficient, making sure that tasks that you take up are completed on the agreed timeframe
  • Be honest and transparent, being able to give and receive feedback in the most straightforward way possible
  • Have a strong sense of humour, being able to make fun of yourself is key
  • Care for people; the interests of the people we work with should always be your first concern
  • Instil the values above in the people that work with you
  • Have keen problem-solving abilities, and a good understanding of what questions to ask, and when
  • Communicate in English, both written and orally
  • Learn quickly, managing a wide-ranging and intense workload

We offer

  • Accommodation in a shared house
  • Transportation to/from work
  • After completion of a three-month trial, if you commit long-term, small monthly expenses refund

In certain periods of the year, demand is extremely high, and the volunteer houses might be full. If you have the means to pay for your own accommodation, please let us know. We would still be happy to host you if space is available. However, in a situation where the volunteer houses are full, this would allow us to offer a volunteering opportunity to someone that cannot afford to pay rent.
