Do you have the skills and time to offer to the Krizevac Project? If so, why not consider volunteering with us in Malawi! Volunteering can be a joyful, positive, adventurous opportunity and none of the work we do would be possible without the input of expert volunteers. We only recruit international volunteers where we are unable to fill the vacancy locally; we do not aim to take away Malawian jobs. In fact, our volunteers work to build up the capacity of their Malawian colleagues, through mentoring, support, training and skill sharing.

Since 2008 over 150 volunteers have supported us. These include Architects, Structural Engineers, Civil Engineers, Teacher Trainers, Early Years’ Trainers, IT Trainers / Engineers, Solar Engineers, Web Developers, Production Managers and Business Management Trainers.

If you are degree qualified, with industry experience in any of these sectors, we would be pleased to hear from you! Volunteers spend a minimum of six months in Malawi. We operate safe recruitment policies and all applicants must be available for a face to face interview in our UK office in Stoke-on-Trent. Following a successful interview, all volunteers will need to supply references, complete a DBS check and take part in a half day induction. In addition to professional experience, we ask that our volunteers:

HAVE A POSITIVE ATTITUDE: We encourages volunteers to be enthusiastic about whatever work needs to be done, at any time.

BE FLEXIBLE: Volunteers need to be prepared to adjust to Malawi as needed, in the areas of working, living, traveling and dietary issues, as well as interacting with the host organisation.

HAVE THE NECESSARY PHYSICAL CAPABILITIES: No matter how great volunteer intentions are, their body may not be willing to accommodate the task at hand or to adapt to life overseas. Volunteers must be sure they are able to perform duties that compliment a given project’s objectives. Unless otherwise stated Krizevac Project covers the following expenses: flights, visas, insurance, vaccines, accommodation and board for the duration of the placement.
