Volunteers are required to work closely with speakers, help set up presentation rooms, ensure that evaluation sheets are distributed and collected, and generally help keep sessions running smoothly. Volunteers in past years have commented that the role is intensive, but the ability to be part of IFC and attend sessions is worth the hard work.
In return, volunteers receive free accommodation and food, and a significant discount registration fee of £650.
The Resource Alliance explains what it is looking for in volunteers. They must:
“work in fundraising, come from a country with an emerging philanthropic culture, may be from charities with a small training budget, or fundraisers starting out as consultants. It is most important that we have an international, vibrant and flexible team that knows how to have fun and work hard too!”
Applications for these places are now open until 30 June.
