Short Term Coworker (International Volunteers)
International Volunteers are mainly involved in the residential setting at Glencraig but in some cases, it may be possible to organise activities in other areas. International Students are usually placed in areas relevant to their course of study if there is a place available.
There are three stages in our application process:
- Stage 1 – The applicant will submit an online application form and if suitable will be invited to participate in a skype interview. After the interview, they will be informed if they have been selected for the project.
- Stage 2 – If selected they will need to complete an Access NI application (the criminal record check for Northern Ireland) and provide specified documents to Glencraig.
- Stage 3 – Only for International Volunteers/Students who require a UK visa. After they have received their Access NI clearance they will apply for a UK Charity Worker visa.
The above process can take 3 – 5 months to complete.
