Positions Vacant: Maintenance Person

Position: Maintenance Person

Country: Ethiopia

Length of placement: 1 year +

Start Date: July 2011

A rural health centre in Ethiopia has asked Palms Australia to help locate a tradesperson with broad maintenance skills to assist repair and maintain its ageing facilities.

The successful applicant will work with local staff at this rural health centre to pass on maintenance skills so that the community is empowered to maintain their own facilities into the future. By passing on skills you will increase the employability of your local colleagues, which will in turn have benefits for their families and broader communities.

The community health centre seeks a volunteer with a broad range of skills including electricity, plumbing, carpentry, plastering and general repairs.

We provide pre-departure preparation, flights, accommodation, a basic living allowance, personal and professional support during placement and re-entry assistance on return home. Applicants will need to attend an orientation course prior to placement.
