Adventure Project Managers and Medics

Challenge yourself this summer. Support Raleigh expeditions as a project manager and use your mountain leader or medical experience to motivate and support young volunteers.

Sustainable development charity, Raleigh International, is recruiting Adventure Project Managers and Medics to volunteer on 8 and 13 week expeditions this summer in Tanzania, Borneo and Costa Rica & Nicaragua – deadlines begin next week!

Adventure Project Manager

As an Adventure Project Manager you will work alongside another Project Manager to lead groups of 12-14 young people as they complete the adventure phase of their expedition. We are looking for people who are Mountain Leader qualified or who have extensive experience in trekking or other outdoor activities. You could trek from one side of Costa Rica to another, navigate Borneo's incredible rainforests or experience Tanzania's rarely visited Southern Highlands. As a result of our relationships with national park authorities, Raleigh's volunteer teams often have access to areas of the country that are usually closed to tourists. You will experience a totally new part of the world and meet and work alongside people from all diverse backgrounds.

You may also have the chance to work on one of our rural community or environmental project sites, helping to deliver the sustainable aims of the project whilst facilitating the personal development of a group of around 12 volunteers. You will often be working in remote areas, so it is essential that you have experience working independently.

Medic

The role of a Medic is similar to that of an Adventure Project Manager, it is two-fold. It will require you to act as a project manager; leading a group of 12-14 volunteers and ensure the safe and effective delivery of our programmes in the field; you may also have the opportunity to take over the medic role at fieldbase, Raleigh's operational in-country hub.

In order to apply, you must have medical skills that are transferable to remote static environments, effective communication skills and the ability to work well as part of a multi-disciplinary team.

Apply here: https://raleighinternational.org/application-form-vm

Once you have applied for either of these roles, you will then be invited to an interview at our London Head Office, or if you are based overseas a Skype or telephone interview can be arranged. Don't miss out on this exciting experience – get your application in today, deadlines begin next week.

For more information on either of these roles or Raleigh expeditions please visit http://raleighinternational.org/vm or call 0207 183 1295.
