Positions with World Unite!
 

Working with World Unite!

 
Our worldwide World Unite! team currently consists of 58 key team members (58% female and 42% male) of 20 different nationalities, speaking a total of 25 different languages.
 
We have an extremely low employee turnover - almost all team members who have decided to work with us have been staying with us so far. Therefore most vacant positions are new positions resulting from the growth of our organisation. As they are new position, it is often necessary for new team members "to grow into the role" and to define their exact responsibilities in interaction with the other team members - taking into consideration everyone's strenghts and interests. As opposed to larger organisations, we don't have strong hierarchies and very strict departmental separations of tasks and duties, and you should enjoy working in a fast-paced, "start up" work environment, helping out your colleagues where needed. Even though we are in our 13th year of operations and have become a relevant player in our sector, we have maintained our youthful energy, which is fostering innovation and providing space for professional and personal growth of our team members.

>>Full-time position - Program coordinator and supporting international volunteers in Zanzibar

 
Available from: immediately/July 2019
 

Your role would be to work alongside a small local team in rural Zanzibar as a coordinator of program activities related to environmental conservation and grassroutes community development, and to provide support to foreign volunteers. You will be the link between foreign volunteers, our local support team and partnering local organisation such as a farmer's cooperative, trying to make sure that all stakeholders feel equally involved and happy about how the program is carried out.

You should feel comfortable to provide customer service, even dealing with young and travel-inexperienced participants who are outside of their comfort zone and possibly going through major culture shocks. You should be able to understand their concerns and support them during their learning process.

You will also be in charge to manage an 18 bed volunteer accommodation (check-ins, check-outs, cleanliness, maintenance, quality standards of services delivered, e.g. food), working with a small local team.

This job requires a high level of people skills, intercultural skills and the ability to understand and bring together a wide array of different interests and positions.

You should ideally stay in the villages of Muungoni or Kitogani, so that you can be fully accepted by the local communities as being "a part of them" (which means you must respect the norms of a conservative rural Muslim society), or in the nearby beach village of Paje from where you can easily reach the project location by public transport within 20 minutes.

A professional background in biology, ecology, forestry, intercultural communication, development work and other related subjects is of advantage, but not an absolute must. In case you have such qualification, you can of course use it and focus on these aspects as part of the program.

You should be able to clearly communicate in English with people who are non-native speakers (e.g. volunteers from Germany, Denmark, France) and who only have a very basic level of English (e.g. farmers from the villages). Skills of the Swahili language are of big advantage, but not an absolute necessity.
