You can help us change lives right now – and develop valuable skills and friendships along the way. Below are examples of both the medical and non-medical roles we recruit for and how you can apply. International Volunteering We collaborate with the MDM network to send volunteers to projects around the world. More information can be found here. London Clinic Clinic Support Workers Clinic support workers are the main point of contact for the people we help. They carry out interviews to determine needs and provide advice. They also act as advocates and liaise with NHS service providers to link people to the care they need. This role does not require clinical experience but would suit someone with an interest in helping vulnerable groups. You can apply for this role during one of four annual recruitment windows. Please only apply if you are able to make the minimum commitment, and attend both the dates provided below for compulsory training. Our April Recruitment Window is now open! Clinic support workers must be able to commit to two sessions a month, for 6 months (or for longer if they wish). The clinic is on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 11:45am to 7pm, though we are looking to start running on Thursday soon too. Please only apply for this position if you are able to honour the minimum commitment required, AND attend BOTH of the mandatory training sessions below: Access to Healthcare & Group Interview Session TUESDAY 8TH MAY **6.30PM – 8.30PM Skills Training Session THURSDAY 17th MAY, 10AM–5PM If you are unable to attend these dates, please consider applying during our next window which is anticipated to open sometime in Late June/Early July Please note that these vacancies are often oversubscribed.

Applications can be made via this link which will become live once the next recruitment opens. Caseworkers Caseworkers take on the more in-depth and complex cases from our clinic or other outreach work. They are also the first point of contact for service-users who contact our office. They act as an advocate and liaise with NHS and other services to link people to the care they need. This office-based role requires a commitment of two days a week (10am-5pm) for at least three months. Please note that this rolling application process is put on hold at times when we are at full capacity with volunteers. GPs and Nurses We only recruit fully-qualified GPs, due to how we are registered with the CQC and issues related to clinical supervision, and we also only take on nurses with at least two years’ post-qualification experience. We are in the fortunate position of having all the Doctors and Nurses we need at present. Please check back later to see when the opportunity will next be opened and click on these links if you're a doctor or a nurse who'd like to apply. Student Placements Whether you're studying medicine, social work, international development, or something completely different, we offer volunteer placements for students. We do not offer clinical work, but rather an opportunity to advocate for our service-users' health and social needs. Placements are usually for a minimum of 25 days, often spread over 2-3 months. We welcome students from the UK and abroad. Our recruitment window for summer placements is now closed!
