About Tools with a Misson
We collect donated tools from across the UK, refurbish them, pack them into trade kits, and send them to African skills centres for livelihood creation. We have a team of over 400 volunteers nationwide and 6 members of staff helping us every step of the way. We want to send 1 million tools to Africa every year, and we need your help to do this. Join TWAM's Paul Daley on Zoom to find out more about what roles are available and how you can be an essential part of our mission.
Country Coordinator is a fantastic role for people who want to be right at the heart of all that TWAM does. This role directly works with our in-country teams and the recipients of our tools. You will help process all the applications that are received via our online application form and help make the crucial decisions over who we can and cannot support. You will have the opportunity to go overseas and visit the projects and people you have worked with to supply them with tools. For many of our Country Coordinators, this has proved a life-changing experience.
What will you be doing?
You will be allocated a country in Africa and will be the first point of contact with everyone from that country who is applying for tools. You will work with your in-country partners who receive our containers and distribute our tools. You may also have a volunteer in-country team to work with as well. You will receive all applications for tools, process those applications, and receive payments. All aspects of applications need to be carefully and accurately recorded. You will work directly with the Chief Executive as this is a very senior and strategic role within TWAM
