Business, management and IT roles


VSO offers programmes in Africa and Asia that maximise the skills of business and management professionals. 

Business, management and IT volunteer roles

Business and management volunteers typically support entrepreneurs and small-to-medium-sized businesses to grow, to become more profitable and more sustainable. Enabling local economies to benefit from increased investment and greater access to employment.  As part of your work you may also be working with vulnerable groups to ensure that their voices are being heard and that they have access to the same rights as others in their community.

Volunteers from IT backgrounds support a range of projects by improving systems and processes that can effect greater efficiencies and reach more people. 

We recruit the following management, business and IT specialisms:

  • Business managers
  • Financial managers
  • HR managers
  • IT professionals
  • Organisational development advisers
  • Small business advisers
