How to participate in the RPC Volunteers Program:

So you're maybe interested in short-term volunteering with RPC? Sounds great!

First we'll need to know a bit about you and your interests. Please complete and submit the form below. It will give us a good start to understanding what you are aiming for and how it may fit with what we need. Please fill in the boxes and submit your information without delay.

Some early advice: Don't be too wordy. Be concise. Tell us what you want, what you are good at, what you know you can do. And do this with clarity and purpose. Use your own words - don't rely on flowery quotes from the internet or from 'experts'.

When we get this submission, we'll confirm with you and we'll ask you to forward your CV by email. We will probably ask you to come in to our office so that we can get to know a little about you, your experiences and your ambitions. It won't be a formal interview though; we'll only have a formal interview if circumstances require it.

Please be ready to be patient. We will probably not be able to confirm a position immediately. It is only when we have confirmed funding that we will be able to go ahead with any particular program. Once a volunteer program for which you are eligible is funded, we will get back to you to check your availability for the position. If there are a number of eligible applicants, a selection panel may hold interviews to assist in that selection process.

I'm interested in volunteering. Please get back to me.
