Every second month, we advertise a new group of Australian Volunteers for International Development (AVID) assignments.
We recommend signing up to our monthly job alert so you're the first to hear of new opportunities.
New AVID assignments will be published on:
4 May until 1 June, 2015 - assignments start October and November 2015.
3 August to 31 August, 2015 - assignments start January and February 2016.
The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has been allocated an estimated budget of $39.6 million for the Australian Volunteers for International Development (AVID) program in 2015-16. This is a reduction from funding in 2014-15.
It is our first priority to ensure that volunteers currently in the field are able to complete their assignments. We are also committed to deploying volunteers who have been selected for assignments in 2014-15.
DFAT is also exploring how the reduction may affect the number of new volunteers who are able to be deployed in 2015-16.
We will provide further updates as they become available.
