Young, smart, creative and media-savvy? Come work with us!

Yeop! By now you know we recruit volunteers for our partner organisations, but Volunteer in Nigeria in itself is WORK!

WORK! WORK! WORK! WORK! WORK!

We need service-oriented, young and bright people to join us on this journey of DOING great things.

The idea behind Volunteer in Nigeria is to connect organisations to service-oriented individuals who can take responsibility and produce success on tasks. We want these individuals to love community, have burning passion for the Nigerian society, and be crazy about social impact. We are raising leaders from today for today and tomorrow. These are people who are keen on rolling up their sleeves and making invaluable contributions for the love of it. You see – you cannot buy this breed of humans from the market. And these people do not become leaders by just talking and DOING nothing. They lead by DOING/SERVING.

Souls are perishing. Yass! That’s the way to say it. Nigeria is in dire straits – that is literally a code-red, attention situation. There is so much to do for our fellow brothers and sisters. So, we cannot be afraid and running away from DOING the WORK. BTW, there are all kinds of work to do. Everybody can get involved. So, the work we do at Volunteer in Nigeria is it!

 

WHO DO WE SEEK?

Thought you would never ask!

So, Volunteer in Nigeria seeks media and partnership associates, a graphic artist, and an events person, who will have the fun option of choosing their job titles. These are volunteer roles. All will involve a lot of communicating and nurturing relationships. Work will be mostly virtually done and give you the chance to take active responsibility in your profession. There will be physical meetings sometimes. You will work as a team but also produce bright ideas that can be quickly put to work. It is critical to have good knowledge of Web 2.0 and how to use tech tools to do things simply.

Here are some things to note for each role.
