Volunteering Placements Overseas

Job description

We are looking for volunteers to join our projects for one week plus to support roles in:

  • Animal care
  • Conservation
  • Diving and marine conservation
  • Building and community development
  • Teaching
  • Sports coaching
  • Child care
  • Film and photography

Volunteering overseas is a great way to enhance your CV since volunteering overseas shows potential employees that you are not afraid of working hard, taking on new challenges and working in new, challenging environments.

You can join a volunteer project as part of your university placement, internship, holiday, gap year or as part of the DofE Gold Award.

Travelling for a volunteer trip can really be a ‘once in a lifetime experience’ to see new things, meet new people and broaden your horizons. We can help find the right project for you whether it’s working with elephants, contributing towards marine conservation or jungle research, or working with children and communities around the world. These experiences can make a trip of a lifetime and be combined with other travel and sightseeing experiences.

What we are looking for


  • You do not need to have specific qualifications or experience to join most of our placements as relevant training will be offered whilst at the project.
  • Our volunteer placements are open to volunteers ages 18 years + and we also run special lead volunteer placements for 16 and 17 year old volunteers each year.

You can contact the Pod team to help you find the right project for you on 01242 241 181.
