SRI LANKA INDONESIA / SLV.Global
Location: Sri Lanka and Bali
Start Date: April 2017
This role is in the SLV.Global senior management team and requires a five month commitment. SLV.Global provide Supervisors with a food and transport budget during the week and refund flight costs after three successful months in the role. Supervisors live with volunteers in a homestay with a local family.
The main Supervisor duties involve overseeing the successful running of projects as well as providing pastoral care to volunteers. Supervisors need to be flexible and friendly, as the role can be massively challenging and is best suited to individuals who have worked in management abroad before or who have already volunteered with us or a similar organisation. Supervisors should be a constant and approachable figure throughout a volunteer’s placement. Below is a non-exhaustive list of key Supervisor responsibilities :
Assist SLV.Global Project Managers on a daily basis
Help to establish new volunteer projects
Work closely with management to ensure the highest standards
Develop training and leading presentations
Providing continuous feedback to management to ensure quality control
Create volunteer timetables and project information packs
Pastoral care for volunteers
Quality control at projects and homestays
The Mental Health Placements require Supervisors be highly adaptable. We expect Supervisors to help out wherever needed to ensure the success of the program. Supervisors must agree to abide by the Homestay and Culture Codes of Conduct and remain professional throughout all aspects of the placement.
The Supervisor work hour commitments are Monday-Friday. However, Supervisors are on call 24/7 and may be required to assist Project Managers at weekends if necessary. Welcoming volunteers and pre-arrival planning can mean occasionally staying late on Fridays, missing projects, or working through public holidays.
