Office Volunteers are an essential part of MSF SA and are part of the team. We benefit from a strong group of regular volunteers who support our permanent staff. Volunteers work in positions which may involve clerical work or specialist skills and experience. When volunteers have been with us for a period of time and know how our offices operate, there may be an opportunity to be included in more challenging projects. Usually, placements are for a regular day, or days, each week for an optimum period of six months. Our volunteer placements are during regular working hours Monday to Friday.
