Pre-assignment activities for remote volunteers
Once you’ve been selected as the preferred candidate, there are several time-sensitive activities and compliance checks to complete before you can start your assignment (details will be available in your volunteer portal).
Within the portal, you'll be asked to enter personal information, like your bank details. This is used to pay allowances and reimburse any eligible expenses.
Complete pre-assignment learning
We are commited to the learning and development of each volunteer. The program provides a mandatory interactive online learning course and online workshop before you begin your assignment.
Accept your confirmation letter
Once the above steps are completed, the last step is to view your Assignment Confirmation Letter and accept the assignment via the volunteer portal.
