We are recruiting for volunteers to join our Quality Values and Institutional Capacity team.

They also ensure transparency and accountability across Action10, working with truth, trust, harmony and equality in the projects we support. As a member of our QVIC team you would find yourself involved in projects including:

  • Coordinating Action10 workshops and meetings
  • Managing scheduled communication with Action10 donors
  • Preparing and managing a portfolio of Action10 events ( currently hampered by Covid-19)
  • Improving awareness of Action10 by working with our social media team and a network of participants with ties in Sub-Saharan African countries
  • Ensuring accountability management in Action10 projects in Sub-Saharan Africa

Action10 is a non-profit organization headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden.

Specific requirements and information: 
Proficiency in spoken and written English is essential as this is our organisation official language. It is favorable if you have experience working with accountability and transparency, or with learning and development in an organization but it is not essential; a passion for communication, enthusiasm for our cause, the confidence to generate ideas, a willingness to learn and work as part of a multicultural team is what counts. It would be an advantage if you have some work, study, or living experience from lower-income countries but again this is not a necessity, a genuine concern for others and want to bring about change are equally important. As a volunteer with Action10 you will play a role in projects that make a difference to people’s lives. We encourage volunteers to work with projects that interest them; if you have the will, we will find a way to use your skillset. Volunteering offers the chance to develop new skills, working alongside passionate individuals you can gain experience in content creation, fundraising, copywriting, presenting, communication, strategy planning, project management, recruitment and the list goes on.
Minimum time commitment: 
The assignment is ongoing and will require approximately 10 hours of individually assigned work and 2 meetings/workshops per month.

Currently work can be carried out remotely however, as the Covid 19 situation eases, we will start to hold in-person meetings again.
