Jobs & volunteering
Acting as an adopter link:
An experienced adopter who is willing to be contacted by email or phone to share their experiences with prospective and established intercountry adopters.
Sophia adopted two children from Pakistan and now acts as an adopter link at IAC sharing her experiences with prospective adopters interested in adopting from that country.
As a speaker on preparation courses
Joan and Roy are proud grandparents to two children adopted from Russia. Whilst their family were waiting for a placement Joan and Roy attended the IAC Information Day for Family and Friends. Three years later they are now guest speakers at the same Information Day, sharing their experiences of what it feels like to be part of an intercountry family.
Shenaz is an adoptee from India. Since 2002 she has been a regular guest speaker on the 3 day preparation course, sharing her story with prospective adopters.
Other volunteers act as contributors to IAC literature, assisting staff with writing and developing the range of publications
IAC also occasionally has vacancies for experienced intercountry adoptive parents to act as co-trainers on the Information Day. These are paid sessional posts and advertised in the Jobs section.
Volunteers with no connection to adoption also contribute to the work of IAC through support to the adminstrative and accounts staff, undertaking such tasks as bookeeping and general administration work. We are interested in offers of help from any age group, retired to sixth formers, who can offer a minimum of half a day per week. IAC is a small friendly organisation and your contribution would make a difference.
If you are interested in volunteering in any way for IAC please contact us.
Intercountry Adoption Centre is an equal opportunities employer.
