Volunteer and share your knowledge

PUM is looking for senior experts
PUM is constantly on the lookout for new volunteers wishing to share their knowledge and experience with entrepreneurs in developing countries and emerging markets. We are interested in contacting men but above all women up to 68 years of age, with the Dutch nationality, with an in-depth knowledge of work on the shop floor. You may for example be a source of expert knowledge about the textile and clothing industry, metal, chemicals, agriculture, the environment or hospitality and tourism, and you are willing to make your experience and expertise available for projects that last on average two weeks. What we also we ask from you is the following:

  • You are available to execute a project at least twice a year
  • You are willing and available to professionalize yourself as an expert (for example by attending to a training provided by PUM)
  • Your flexibility is such that you are able to execute a project within a period of two months
  • You have a lot of working experience, preferably in a developing country
  • You view the transfer of knowledge and experience as a challenge
  • You have the Dutch nationality
  • You speak and write English well (French or Spanish are an advantage)
