Developing a Career in International Development We know it can be frustrating trying to develop a career in this much sought after sector, especially when organisations require prior experience; be it institutional donor management, fieldwork or capacity building of overseas recipients. Please don't let this put you off, we would strongly recommend considering a volunteer assignment as a way to gain this highly relevant experience.

It's worth noting all AfID's assignments are individually tailored to the volunteers own preferences, skills and availability.
