Event:

There's no one size fits all approach to getting a job in the development sector.

'Pathways to Impact' is a free panel discussion presented by Australian Volunteers International, as part of the Link Festival Melbourne 2015.

This free event is centred on the international aid and development sector and features representatives from Save the Children, the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC), Engineers Without Borders (EWB) and Architects Without Frontiers (AWF).

Held on Monday 16 February at Deakin Edge, Federation Square, the panel discussion will explore the vast range of opportunities and avenues in international aid, relief and development organisations.

Participating in the discussion are:

  • Returned volunteers from AVI, EWB and AWF

  • Corey Williams - former ski instructor turned Program Manager at Save the Children

  • Mark Deasy an experienced (15 years) development worker from AVI/Oxfam

  • Dona Cayetana, manager of the Professional Mentoring Program at the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre

  • Facilitator Sean Lynch, Recruitment Manager at AVI and former Director at Sports for Change.

    If you desire to work in international aid, relief and development, don't miss this opportunity to meet and learn from those who have already made the transition.

    You'll receive invaluable knowledge and leave with a better understanding of the different employment pathways available.

    It is free to attend this panel discussion. Click here to register your interest.
