Ability to be open minded and respectful
Ability to be resilient and adaptive to new situations

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.
