Tips on how to complete the application form


4. Email your application to the email address given at the end of the job/placement description.

For vacancies in the London office, Progressio will consider applications only from those who already have the right to live and work in the UK and in the European Economic Area (EEA). 

For volunteering in the London office, Progressio considers CVs with covering letters (instead of application forms). If this is the case, it will be clear in the vacancy advertisement and there will be no application form to download. Please only apply for volunteering opportunities when you see one advertised.

Next steps in the selection process

Unfortunately, due to the amount of applications we receive, we are only able to contact those applicants who are short-listed for interview. After the closing date, it can take us between one to three weeks to contact the short-listed candidates. Candidates sending applications to the recruitment@progressio.org.uk email address receive an automated acknowledgement email confirming receipt of their application.

Candidates who are short-listed will be contacted and invited to participate further in the selection process – usually through an initial telephone/Skype interview, and/or a face-to-face selection process, which may also include exercises (eg written, numeracy, presentation, role play). Following this, each candidate will be contacted regarding the outcome, whether successful or not, and will be given objective feedback.


Who covers my interview expenses?

If you are invited to a face-to-face selection process, in either our London office or in one of our country offices, we will pay/reimburse your travel expenses, and assist you with any travel arrangements.

We advertise on a number of international job portals. Progressio's vacancies and other NGO jobs also appear on CharityJOB
