Volunteer Scheme

In 2016/17, 122 volunteers and interns contributed a staggering 370 hours per week to IRMO’s work

IRMO counts on a team of more than 80 volunteers at any one time. 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.

Over the past two years, we have worked with volunteers from 34 countries across five continents, creating a truly multicultural environment for our team and service users alike.

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.
