There are a number of ways you can get involved with EWB-Ireland. We welcome students and professionals alike. You don’t even have to be an engineer! EWB-Ireland welcomes anyone who is interested in the role technology has to play in international development and disaster relief.
All the openings at Engineers without Borders are unpaid volunteer positions. We dedicate our free time to improving life in developing countries while gaining experience in humanitarian engineering. Our only expectation is that you dedicate the amount of free time you feel comfortable with.
Here are some of ways you can get involved:
We currently have vacancies on our national committee. So if you are interested in playing a part in the development of EWB-Ireland, let us know by sending us a mail. To find out more about joining the committee, see our Vacancies
Why join the national committee….
Being a member of the EWB-Ireland National committee provides an opportunity to develop your organisational skills and gives you valuable experience working within a development organisation.
Being a member of the national committee also provides an opportunity for you to share your experience and promote your own ideas for the future of EWB-Ireland.
What we require from committee members….
Note that all our positions are entirely voluntary based. We recognise that our members’ time is valuable and we endeavour to ensure that anyone who volunteers their time will only receive work at a level they are comfortable with.
The main requirement we seek from our committee members is enthusiasm! We hope that anyone who joins the national committee will be pro-active in their approach to work and show keen interest in international development issues. Experience in international development and/or organising committees would be an advantage.
To apply for a position on the committee please contact us here – outlining your experience and why you want to get involved.
If you know people in your area or university who would be interested in learning about sustainable development, why not become involved in an EWB branch! EWB-Ireland can assist you in setting up a branch and provide you with the necessary resources.
We currently have student branches in Queens University Belfast, IT Sligo and University College Cork and we are working towards setting up further branches in Dublin, Limerick & Galway. If you wish to be involved let us know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
