Job Description

INTRODUCTION
The daily management of Atoll Volunteers is completed by our resident Volunteer Coordinator. The work is varied and includes different tasks such as organising individual volunteer placements, volunteer activities, community events, web-management (our website, social media, listings, etc.), conflict resolution, shortand long-term planning of our different projects, writing grant proposal and progress reports to international donor agencies like the UNDP, World Bank, UNODC and much more!

Though you will work closely with many of the local volunteers that work for our NGO, ensuring that our organisation runs smoothly and effectively is your responsibility. We expect a disciplined person who can manage his/her time responsibly and keep a healthy balance between work and fun.
We attract volunteers from all over the world and from different backgrounds and you will interact with them on a daily basis, ensuring that they have a good and meaningful stay with us. We do what we can to engage our volunteers in social activities on a daily basis, including on our days off. As Volunteer Coordinator, you will arrange weekly boat trips to neighbouring islands to enjoy the sun, swim, snorkel, fish or just kick back and relax. You will also join in on these excursions yourself!

You will never forget your time in Naifaru. There are constantly things going on everywhere around you, and everywhere you are met with open arms and a friendly face. Don’t just take our word for it; take the time to wander down one of the many intricate side alleys and experience first-hand how there is a very special atmosphere, unlike any you will find anywhere in the world. Guaranteed!
