Would you like to join RE:ACT and be part of something special? Whether you apply for one of our paid roles or choose to help us with our voluntary opportunities, we are always on the look out for talented, compassionate individuals to join us in our mission to reduce human suffering.
As humanitarians, we don’t always know where we will be needed, when or by whom, but we know that the work we do makes a massive difference when disasters and emergencies strike. This means that we need a pool of trained, committed and like-minded people who are ready to get involved, sometimes at short notice.
Our volunteering opportunities are varied and we are looking for people who can help us fundraise, arrange logistics, organise events, promote our charity, mentor/coach others amongst many other roles. All our volunteers must complete our foundation course, which is on-line and takes approximately 90 minutes.
Many of our volunteers go on to become trained Domestic Responders, who deploy quickly to assess and arrange the help required when the need arises due to an emergency or disaster. Their work can vary from assisting in flooded areas, welfare checks on individuals who have had no power for a sustained length of time or helping to support the NHS. Many of our responders are veterans or have worked in blue light services because their skills suit this type of role, but we welcome people from all backgrounds.
Responders undertake an intensive training course at our Chilmark headquarters near Salisbury, further, some go on to become International Responders. Their work can involve helping people affected by an earthquake or tsunami, getting aid to people in hard to reach places, enabling people to access clean drinking water and much more. Recently, some of our Responders have being involved in getting essential aid to ease the suffering in Ukraine.
We have a small but dynamic head office team, as most of our work is done through our volunteers, however when do have vacancies they are advertised on our website and public job sites. If you are looking for a paid opportunity, we also have a bank of paid workers who are called on when there are opportunities available via our trading arm RE:SILIENT. For paid roles, we offer market rate salaries, with a pension and a flexible/hybrid way of working.
How ever you get involved to help us make a real difference you will, in return: -
- Meet new, like-minded and interesting people
- Gain valuable skills and experiences
- Increase your confidence and self-esteem
- Improve your mental and physical wellbeing
- Discover a real sense of community, purpose and identity
- Benefit from local support and contacts
- Do good and feel positive
We hope to welcome you to RE:ACT very soon.
