office administration

VIN’s office administration program is suited to volunteers wishing to experience the inside machinations within our organization. This position allows volunteers to use administrative abilities and language proficiency to help the office branch of VIN. Assisting in the office enables our other professionals to reach communities to perform follow-up checks, progress evaluations and data collection. Opportunities to visit the communities that you will be helping will be available, as well as working alongside friendly colleagues from Nepal and abroad.

Program Details

VIN’s office Headquarters is based in Balaju, Kathmandu. This is where the Volunteer Office Administrator is stationed, working alongside the other 5 full-time office-based staff.

This is from where all of VIN’s programs are run including:

As an office administrator fluent written and spoken English is needed to assist in office administration; to review and improve procedures and ensure all VIN documentation is up to date as well as grammatically correct.

  • Writing and publishing VIN newsletters
  • Updating VIN data, program accomplishments, and activities
  • Tracking volunteer placements on spreadsheets

  • Book-keeping
  • Fieldwork data entry

Preferred Qualifications

  • Fluent spoken and written English
  • Knowledge of Microsoft word and excel

Achievements so Far

Achievements made to date in this role include assisting the re-designing of the VIN website and brochure (including checking and redrafting of the content); production of information sheets/announcements; advice on procedures and the re-launching of the sponsorship project.
