Mercy Corps volunteers stuffing envelopes

Donating your time is a hugely valuable way to contribute to our work. Volunteers help us maximise our connection with communities around the world and support raising vital funds throughout the year. We have a variety of volunteering opportunities on offer and we’d love to have you involved.

Current opportunities:

Office Volunteers (Admin)

Office volunteers come in on a regular basis and complete a variety of administrative tasks to support the fundraising team in Leith, Edinburgh. Duties vary depending on your skills and interests and we’d love to have a chat if this could be you. Please contact Sophie at volunteer-europe@mercycorps.org if you can lend a hand.

Events Volunteers

Our events volunteers are energetic and willing to help out with anything. From co-ordinating registration, to serving refreshments to cheering participants across the finish line - they are vital in making our events big successes.

Your support raises awareness of the work of Mercy Corps and helps to raise funds in the process. Events volunteering roles are flexible and you can decide how often you want to commit your time. Please get in touch for a position that suits you.


In an emergency, we are working hard to ensure that we can support those in crisis. Our fundraising team welcomes volunteers to help with a range of administrative support on a short-term basis at these times.
