We are looking for a diligent, passionate, and organised person to join the Action10 board as a board secretary volunteer. This is a critical role within Action10, and your responsibilities will include (but aren't limited to!) being responsible for meeting minutes, sending invites for meetings to team members (and following up on attendance), involvement in the GDPR policy making and compliance of the organisation, recruiting and participating in the on-boarding (where necessary) of new team members, and ensuring that the communication channels are up-to-date with the latest contact information for team members. Being a key member of the board, you will often also be a go-to person for volunteers who may have questions; so being a people person is key! Due to the nature of the role, the person in this position must be very comfortable in both written and spoken English, and must be able to attend the monthly meetings (evenings on the first Tuesday and Wednesday of each month). Whether you have experience in any of these areas of responsibility, or you’re hungry and willing to learn, we would love to hear from you!
We kindly ask that you only apply if you are able to join the organisation for a longer volunteer period (eg 9 months+). We look forward to hearing from you!
Are you a person who feels that the world should be a better place for everyone to live? Do you ever think about issues like poverty, poor health, lack of education in different parts of the world? Then be a part of Action10 as a volunteer and help to create a change.
Action10 is a non-profit organisation headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden. Our vision is a world without poverty and our mission is to address the challenges expressed by local social entrepreneurs who operate in poor areas that hinder them to implement their ideas. We aim to work as an equal partner and offer start-up loans, coaching, practical strategies, and workshops. We strive to remain a partner until the project is self-sustained.
We work with a group of volunteers in Sweden who work to strongly support our projects in sub-saharan African countries. The volunteers are organised in different working groups reflecting their purpose within the organisation. If you are ready to work independently while coordinating with others, this is the right place for you! We require individuals who have a perspective and vision to make a change. You should be flexible, selfless, and committed, because you are in a position where you are relied upon. If you have great ideas, are curious and open and understand the meaning of changing lives for good, do not hesitate, just click apply.
