Available vacancies

2)Long term volunteers (minimum 2 months service);
  • Field coordinators
  • Logistics coordinators
  • Medical coordinators

Dentists

We are looking for skilled dentists with at least 2 years postgraduate experience to join our clinical team on ground. With over 20% of all medical cases in refugee camps presenting as dental cases, there is a great need for dental services in this region. Dentists have the capacity to make life-changing differences to those who do not have access to state health care.

  • minimum 2 years postgraduate experience
  • an in-date registration certificate in your country of practice
  • a desire to work with displaced individuals in a low-resource setting
  • willingness to work in a dynamic environment

Dental Assistants

Nurses/assistants play a support role for dentists in many tasks including patient care, setting up appropriate equipment and mixing ingredients to name a few. Some of our dental volunteers will ask their assistants to join them on the trip. If you are a student of dentistry, but aren’t yet qualified, we may be able to consider you in the role of a dental assistant.

You must have the following:

  • a desire to work with displaced individuals in a low-resource setting
  • qualification in dental nursing
  • experience working within a low-resource setting

Arabic Translators

You must have the following:

  • Fluency in Arabic
  • Fluency in English
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Empathy

Ground Coordinators

Ground coordinators, otherwise known as jack-of-all trades, are essential for the efficient running of field projects.

  • Excellent command of the English language
  • Good computer skills
  • Proficiency in data management
  • Management skills
