Trades & Services  

Bring your trade skills in the Pacific, and make a real difference.

If you are a qualified and experienced tradesperson up for a challenge, then a VSA volunteer assignment might be suitable for you. We sometimes have roles for talented trades and services people to bring both their professional and personal skills to help local communities in the wider Pacific.

All VSA assignments are created in response to the specific requests of our partner organisations, so each assignment is unique. Your assignment might involve you teaching a trade at a vocation college or helping to improve school or community infrastructure such as improved access to water and sanitation. Your ability to coach and inspire others will help ensure lasting benefits to the local partner organisations and communities.

Past assignments include:

  • Plumber, Papua New Guinea
  • Trade Instructor (Woodwork), Bougainville
  • Road Works Adviser, Solomon Islands
  • Builder/Trainer, Bougainville
