Project Leader Volunteer - Join us and help transform lives

This volunteer position offers a great opportunity to use your skills and input into the lives of young people who have experienced abuse or trauma.

The Project Leader (PL) heads up the project logistically and is responsible for the welfare of the facilitators, of which there will be 3-4 per project. Together with the HTR Director, the PL is responsible for the smooth running of the project on the ground. The role involves working closely with the HTR  Director and also the Host Agency and contacts on the ground, especially when the HTR Director is not at the project.

The PL plays a key role within the Senior Management Team in:

• achieving project outcomes and targets

• putting policy into place and maintaining its standards

• developing and maintaining facilitation standards within Hear Their Roar

• making sure the teams’ mental health, relationships, focus, drive and morale are healthy and positive

• performance management, discipline and motivation

• logistics, finances and admin organisation whilst on the project

Finally It's the job of the PL to translate Hear Their Roar’s vision into reality, so they should have a practical mind of what can be done during the course of a project, workshop, planning time etc., and how exactly it needs to be implemented.

LINE MANAGER: The PL is accountable to the HTR Director and will keep in close dialogue with Megan during the project.

LINE MANAGEMENT: The PL has line management responsibility for the facilitators on the project.

Hear Their Roar also cares for our teams’ mental health and provides lots of R&R. When HTR Volunteer teams are working and giving out to the extent that we do we also need to make sure that we are restored and have time to debrief, rest and invest in ourselves so we can give our max to the young people we work with. So HTR Volunteer teams will have amazing experiences which will last a lifetime in the Country they are volunteering in.

- Nairobi, Kenya: the team goes to Sheldrick Elephant orphanage, the Giraffe orphanage and on a 2 day Safari once the work contract ends.

- Kenema, Sierra Leone: the team goes to the beach for 2 days after the work contract ends.
