Committee vacancies

We’re always looking for dynamic people to join our team here in the UK. See below for current opportunities:

All roles are voluntary and are predominantly home/remotely based. Reasonable expenses incurred in carrying out responsibilities (e.g. food and travel expenses) will be reimbursed.

DiA is a youth-led organisation and as such, young people from a diverse range of backgrounds with demonstrable enthusiasm for DiA’s vision and mission are encouraged to apply.

Being part of DiA’s executive committee is a brilliant opportunity to develop skills, gain confidence and build knowledge to complement studies, work and/or other volunteering work. DiA alumni are very vocal about how their experience on the committee has supported them in pursuing their careers and in being active agents of change within their own communities and further afield. Committee members support and learn from each other and receive guidance from DiA’s Board of Trustees.

We are currently not recruiting for our committee. Please check back soon.

If you are interested in volunteering with us, please contact Shefali at shefali@developmentinaction.org
