Mission: We bring people together to fight poverty.
Our unique role in international development is to place committed volunteers with carefully selected organisations so their skills generate the greatest value.
We know, from almost sixty years ...
I have been working at VSO full-time (More than 3 years)
Flat management structure, staff have autonomy over their work, many social and sports activities on a daily basis to get involved with (squash, running, yoga, knitting, football, badminton, etc.), great people, diverse staff and generally good energy from colleagues.
Opportunities for education and external training courses for staff barely exist.
Advice to Management
Better invest and support staff to gain new skills and experiences through external educational and training opportunities.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at VSO (London, England) in June 2016.
it was a long process from original application, after online situational judgement questions and then an assessment day where we were assessed on different situations and interviewed extensively on our opinions, what we wanted to do for the company etc. they gave us different tasks to look at and had to decide on the best strategy to approach the situation.
