Find out more about the position and how to apply


Volunteers are an essential part of MSF UK.

We benefit from a strong group of regular volunteers who support our permanent staff. Volunteers work in positions which may involve clerical work or specialist skills and experience.

When volunteers have been with us for a period of time and know how our offices operate, there may be an opportunity to be included in more challenging projects.

Usually, placements are for a regular day, or days, each week for an optimum period of six months. Our volunteer placements are during regular working hours Monday to Friday.


MSF UK also offers a selection of paid internships. These are fixed term placements of three months full time, or six months part time.

Interns have worked in all departments of MSF UK. Internships are an opportunity to develop specific skills through structured learning, coaching and regular review.

Internships demand a large time commitment, regular schedule and make a substantial contribution to our work.
