Volunteer Opportunity description

Conciliation Resources is an independent organisation working with people in conflict to prevent violence and build peace. We support people at the heart of conflicts who are striving to find solutions. We work with them to deepen our collective understanding of the conflict, bring together divided communities and create opportunities for them to resolve their differences peacefully. In addition, we take what we learn to government decision-makers and others working to end conflict, to improve peacebuilding policies and practice worldwide.

Our Operations Officer is looking for a pro-active and computer literate person to volunteer at our office 3 days each week on an ongoing basis.

Previous fundraising volunteer David Cruchley says:

"The tasks and challenges put before me as Fundraising Volunteer were varied and engaging, and the support excellent. I have been able to gain valuable experience of a professional setting, in a conflict resolution NGO, working on tasks that had a clearly outlined purpose and impact, ensuring that I felt at all times that I was a valued member of the team."
