Competencies and Behaviour
At VSO we believe progress is only possible by working together.
Whether you want to join us as an employee, or as a volunteer working in
your own country, overseas or online, our selection process includes an
assessment based on these core competencies:
• 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
VSO promotes equal opportunities and values a diverse workforce.
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.
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.
