In 2015/16, 163 volunteers and interns contributed a staggering 350 hours per week to IRMO’s work
IRMO currently counts on a team of more than 80 volunteers. The time, knowledge and enthusiasm they give make it possible to run the services and projects that our users rely on.
The Volunteer Scheme was set up to provide volunteers with valuable work experience in order to step into London’s competitive job market. As well as being integral to the smooth running of our organisation, the scheme helps volunteers to develop their skills by working in a multicultural, cooperative and inspiring environment.
In 2015/16, IRMO worked with 163 volunteers from around the world. We also welcomed 15 interns, who undertook placements as part of their university courses in Italy, Spain and the UK.
Owing to the wide scope of our services and projects, IRMO offers volunteers the opportunity to work in exciting and diverse roles: art facilitators, youth workers, accountants, fundraisers, legal advisors, English teachers, job advisors, translators, interpreters, social media managers, receptionists, psychologists, and many more…
We highly value the enormous contribution of our volunteers. It is thanks to their time and effort that the organisation has been able to help the Latin American community in London for over thirty years.
