No. However, there are several non-monetary benefits that you receive in exchange for your meaningful contributions to our initiative.
We are looking for people who are dependable and who are able to offer a regular weekly commitment for at least six months. We have a diverse and international community, so it’s important that you are open-minded and that you can communicate well in English.
No. We are open to collaborating with volunteers across the globe, as some of our tasks can be performed remotely.
All of our volunteers that are living in Budapest are required to meet at least once per month. However, depending on the nature of the project or event that you are involved with, you may need to meet/engage with your project team more frequently.
It’s difficult to say because it depends on your specific role. For example, article writers are required to produce content at least once or twice per month, whereas the contributions from event organisers are dependent on the number of GiLE events there are. Put differently, your regular contributions are more task specific rather than time orientated. Many of our volunteers start off by doing one role, and then later take on additional tasks. We suggest that you follow a similar approach, as it allows you to appropriately manage your time.
If your application is successful, then you will be required to sign a Volunteer Agreement. This arrangement is not intended to be legally binding and it does not create an employer-employee relationship. We try our best to make your volunteering experience enjoyable and rewarding. The Volunteer Agreement describes what you can expect from us and it also highlights the standards of personal and professional conduct that we expect from you.
