Everything you need to do to prepare for your assignment

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 committed to the learning and development of our volunteers. The program provides a mandatory interactive online learning course and online workshop before you begin your assignment.
