The Volunteer Coordinator is a crucial member of the CENIT team who, together with Ecuadorian Volunteer Coordinator staff member, acts as a liaison between volunteers, donors and the Ecuadorian staff. He/she is responsible for recruiting, supervising and supporting volunteers in their work at CENIT, and doing what is necessary to help them perform their job well. The Coordinator monitors volunteer and Intern progress and assures their well-being through meetings, conversations, and written reports. He/she maintains contact with ex-volunteers, and encourages the success and creation of home country networks. Perhaps most importantly, he or she encourages maturation, improvement, and innovation in all of CENIT´s programs: making sure that they are accomplishing their objectives, are sustainable, and are benefiting the community and students to the greatest extent possible. The position requires a great deal of responsibility; you will work closely with the Ecuadorian Volunteer Coordinator, Sub-Director, and Director. It requires initiative; the Ecuadorian Volunteer Coordinator provides excellent support, but has other responsibilities so you will often work independently. Flexibility is also a key characteristic of the Volunteer Coordinator as things tend to change quickly in Ecuador and you will need to respond appropriately to help CENIT meet its needs. This position is perfect for someone who has a degree or experience related NGO/organizational leadership or who is interested in a career with International NGOs.
