Volunteers overseas

All our volunteer roles are based in Ireland. We are often contacted about volunteering overseas and although very grateful for the generosity of spirit, Red Cross policy is to recruit volunteers in the affected country. We sometimes send professionally qualified people abroad as delegates. These positions are advertised here.

Work Experience

From time to time, the Red Cross facilitates requests from people looking for work experience, Transition Year students or prospective interns. Interested parties should contact info@redcross.ie with details of their request
