Electronic/electrical engineers

You can help improve the quality of vocational training in developing countries and ensure that essential services like healthcare operate more effectively.

Most of our opportunities require a hospital maintenance background. However, we have some limited options in other areas too.

You'll need a relevant vocational qualification and at least two years’ work experience. For electricians, domestic supply experience is useful. Training experience is desirable for all placements.
You’ll need to have maintenance experience for medical equipment with mentoring and training skills. You’ll also need to develop a maintenance plan, run training programmes for staff and develop manuals for ongoing training.

Creating opportunities for people living with mental illness in Sri Lanka

VSO has supported the development of the mental health sector over the last 15 years, helping to create more clinics and rehabilitation centres as well as establishing training programmes to raise standards of mental healthcare. An estimated 2.5 million Sri Lankans have been reached by the efforts of VSO volunteers during this time. Chandani's experience illustrates how VSO's intervention has helped transform one woman's potentially bleak future into a much brighter one.
