Experienced Trainers/Inspiring Speakers (Amsterdam) – Volunteer Position

Fairfood is an Amsterdam-based non-profit organisation that envisions a fair & sustainable food system able to adequately produce and provide nutritious food for everyone in a way that preserves the environment and natural resources for future generations, respects human rights and secures a thriving economy for all, thereby contributing to ending hunger and poverty.

Our workforce consists of volunteers and employees who are drawn to our cause and seek to contribute to it. To empower them and to give back Fairfood provides training and workshops to develop valuable skills and competences in order to grow professionally and personally.

Being a young, dynamic organization with low budgets also confronts us with a challenge: how do we keep up with the latest developments? How do we keep our skills on the highest level?

To answer this, we are looking for:

Experienced Trainers/Inspiring Speakers

  • (Effective) Communications
  • Leadership
  • Research/Advocacy
  • Campaigning
  • Fundraising
  • Mindfulness
  • Sustainability/Food Issues

Some of the expected activities are:

  • Create a training module/workshop to be delivered as a one-off session
  • Planning and organising the training session/day

The sessions are part of our Learning and Development program, and we will fully support and facilitate you throughout the process and activities.

What do we offer

A unique chance to train a group of young, motivated and multicultural individuals within an international organisation. This is a volunteer assignment; however we will reimburse your travel expenses within the Netherlands and provide lunch for the day you give the session.
