We are always in need of people to help us help others. In particular, a range of skilled volunteers are needed, with requirements and time commitments listed below.
With the Global X-perience educational side of our work continuing to expand and grow, we are in need of a person to focus on the curriculum development for students. This full time position requires a person with the following attributes:
• fluent in English and Chinese language
• a strong background and experience in working with students and youth

• be skilled in developing new simulation programme curriculum to adapt to changing global situations, updating the facts and statistics supporting each current simulation

Minimum commitment: full time for 1 year.
Strong written, bi-lingual skills with a customer service background for our GoodCity App. Minimum commitment: 2 days onsite training followed by remote volunteering.
We are looking for volunteers who might be able to help with online tasks for our GoodCity project. Know someone who has customer service experience (eg hospitality, retail or entertainment industry experience which includes an understanding of how to interact with and “delight” customers)? They need to be bi-lingual in English and Chinese.
- Attend Crossroads for two days of ‘on the job training’. Training includes:
- reviewing offers of donated goods alongside our team
- understanding the entire process of goods handling so they can answer questions
- detailed training of GoodCity apps
- learning how we define a good customer experience
- Volunteering regularly from their mobile phone or computer. Time commitment can vary between a few hours a week (enough to handle a dozen or so donation cases) to as much time as the volunteer is willing to assist (providing top quality customer service to hundreds of donors would be a full-time job!) The main requirement is not for a certain time commitment but, rather, a commitment to ensure that each donation case the volunteer handles is carried through to a satisfactory conclusion.
