Personal considerations:

In addition to the job description, the following information should be used when considering whether a placement is suitable for you.

Personal health considerations:


If you have a significant current or past medical condition and/or you have general concerns about staying healthy as a volunteer, please use this information to assess whether this placement will be suitable for you. All volunteers require medical clearance from a VSO medical adviser before they are able to take up a placement with VSO. Occasionally, VSO may consider that this placement is too great a risk for you in terms of your personal health and you would be advised to consider a different placement. For further guidance about medical assessment and volunteering with a medical condition please see the frequently asked questions on VSO website.

Access to medical care and support:

The standard and quality of local medical care and support available at this placement will depend on its location within the country. Health facilities are likely to be more poorly resourced in rural areas in terms of medical expertise, equipment, infrastructure and regular supplies of medication.
However, this may not be the case in the capital city or in a larger town, where in some countries there may be a reasonable standard of medical care.
The following gives you an indication of where the placement is in relation to the country office and how easy it would be to make the journey if you were ill. Extra care just like in any other situation will be necessary in matters of security. This placement will be in either Nairobi, Pretoria, Bangkok or Kingston – UK.

Social Media gives you an unreal perception of people. Nothing beats meeting people in person, looking them in the eye & hearing them speak & watching them laugh.

Real life >> Social Media.
