Volunteer application form

Volunteers carry out tasks by agreement with the Fairtrade Foundation staff. They give their time freely to help run events, help out in our office, help with producer visits, blog and talk about Fairtrade on social networking sites, and extend and complement the work of paid staff in a range of other ways. The Fairtrade Foundation wants to support and encourage the involvement of volunteers in every possible way.

Volunteering placements are normally advertised for two to three days per week for two to three months. Our volunteer placements are almost always during regular working hours Monday to Friday. 

Some general points about volunteering with the Fairtrade Foundation: 

  • We ask for a minimum commitment of one day per week for three months for general volunteering. Some positions require more days.
  • We provide luncheon vouchers valued at £5 per day if working five or more hours in that day and refund off-peak travel expenses (maximum £15 per day) on production of a receipt/ticket.
  • The type of work available is rarely suitable for volunteers to carry out from home.
  • We regret that we are unable to assist non-UK residents who are planning to volunteer during a short stay in the UK with visa applications, finding accommodation etc.
  • The Fairtrade Foundation is committed to equal opportunities and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.

We are very sorry but we are unable to write to unsuccessful applicants due to the sheer volume of applications we receive and limited recruitment resources available.  However, thank you for your interest in working for the Fairtrade Foundation.  The Fairtrade Foundation is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
