People are Motivation’s greatest asset and one of our key strategic values is to put people first.

Not only are we committed to enhancing the lives of as many disabled people as possible, through our own projects and by helping other organisations to do things better, but we also strive to ensure that everyone who works with and for Motivation feels valued, inspired and empowered to make a positive change.

We have built up a reputation for having a team of passionate experts who know the wheelchair sector inside out as well as understand the challenges facing disabled people living in the developing world. In addition to the practical knowledge and skills of our front line staff, we also have a strong back office team who play an invaluable role raising the funds, keeping on top of the finances and making sure operations run smoothly and efficiently.

If you would like to join our team, keep an eye on both this page and our social media platforms where we will advertise posts and opportunities.

Programme Development Volunteer

Motivation is seeking someone with an interest in international development and/or disability, who would like to gain experience working for an INGO. We are looking for a volunteer intern to join the Programme Development team to commit to 1 or 2 days per week (this is flexible, depending on your availability and interest in the available tasks).

We would like the volunteer to spend at least one half day per week in the Bedminster office, but could work further hours remotely if more convenient. We are looking for a volunteer who can preferably work with us for at least six months.

An understanding of the international development sector and/or disability issues would be advantageous.

The volunteer’s main tasks will be content writing for internal reports and updates, as well as some desk-based research. Depending on the volunteer’s skills, availability and interests, the intern could take on further tasks, for example assisting with qualitative and quantitative data analysis and reporting for Monitoring & Evaluation.

If you’re confident with desk-based/internet research, can compile reports and written content to a good standard, are able to work with limited supervision and communicate effectively with a team, please get in touch with a CV and details of your availability and what you’re looking for from a voluntary position, so that we can have an informal chat.

Please contact Nathalie, [email protected] for more information or send a CV to express interest.

Motivation regrets that, due to limited funding, we cannot cover travel expenses.
