Volunteer Coordinator

at Collective Aid
Published September 5, 2022
Location Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Category Management  
Job Type Volunteer  




The role involves assessing and meeting the organisation's needs through the recruitment, placement and retention of volunteers. This includes on-boarding them in the projects and training them too. After welcoming volunteers with different baggage and experience, we expect the Volunteer Coordinator to support them throughout their Collective Aid experience and promote safe working practice and a welfare environment.


The Balkan Volunteer Coordinator should be one of the most flexible members of Collective Aid. Their work requires presence in three locations (Subotica, Belgrade, and Sarajevo), so part of the work is traveling to other locations to work with the teams on the ground and cater to the needs of those teams too, so all the Balkan projects receive equal support.




Stipended positions: 300€/month

Travel expenses to other Collective Aid locations covered

Final candidate will live in the Collective Aid volunteer houses with other volunteers, coordinators and managers.
