We value everyone on our team, especially our talented and dedicated volunteers, without whom Article 25 would not exist. We do our utmost to ensure the volunteering process is mutually beneficial. Most of our volunteers are based in London. Our field volunteers are recruited extremely carefully depending on the complex demands of each project, and always have proven experience running projects in the field.
Vacancies at Article 25 are advertised here and updated regularly. If you are interested in volunteering for Article 25, send your CV and a short covering letter to email@example.com. If we have suitable work we will get back to you.

What you could gain from volunteering:
Article 25 is always looking for new volunteers. Here’s what some of our previous volunteers have said about their time with us.
Exposure: I have really benefited from and appreciated the quality of contact with experienced staff. We are a small organisation and volunteers work directly with senior staff who are directly responsible for running areas of the charity’s operations. It is great exposure to the way an international development charity works and there isn’t much separation between those at the top level of the organisation and those who have just entered.
Opportunities: Article 25 is also a place where any skills a volunteer has may be called upon; if you can make models, speak another language, or even have a knack for designing layouts, Article 25 can find something for you.
Collaboration: One of the best things about working with Article 25 is the support provided by everyone there. Staff always have time to offer constructive feedback, and a good idea goes a long way.
Reciprocation: One thing that struck me immediately about Article 25 was that from the first interview it was made clear that volunteering should not only help the charity, but help me to gain the skills and experience I wanted. Our staff are conscious of how important volunteer work is to the organisation and want to make sure volunteers feel appreciated and get access to the areas of work they are interested in.
Understanding: Article 25 is flexible about making work with us fit around other commitments, whether its academic studies, other employment or anything else. In a job climate and sector where volunteer work is an essential stepping stone to a career, it is great Article 25 is sensitive to volunteers’ needs outside the charity.
The People: Finally, those who work and volunteer at Article 25 are some of the most generous, interesting and rewarding people to be around, and the office maintains an atmosphere of positivity and fun. Laughter is pretty much non stop and there is a lot of inspiration to be found, not just in the charity’s overseas projects but the amazing staff, volunteers and friends outside the organisation who devote their valuable time and energy to Article 25.
See you in the office!
