INFORMATION FOR PARTNER ORGANSATIONS
do you Want to work with the egypt centre to provide work placements?
The Egypt Centre would be delighted to discuss your organisation's personal requirements.
Please find below some information about our programme that all service providers and individuals are subject to.
We can only accept a maximum of 8 adult work placements at any one time (6 under 18's). The Egypt Centre has many service partners and places are often taken up well in advance. Please contact the Volunteer Manager to book in dates as soon as possible. Provisional dates can be held up to 1 month in advance of the due date.
Application forms are freely available from our website, or we can send you form’s if necessary. The relevant form (adult or under 18) must be filled in completely in order to obtain a placement. We will not fill in any paperwork from other organisations until we have recieved a formal application.
All adult work placements are subject to 2 satisfactory references (one can be from your organisation if you wish), and a fully enhanced Criminal Records Bureau check. This must be back BEFORE they start. CRB’s are notorious for taking a long time to be returned, so we advise that final applications are made 3 months in advance in order to allow enough time for a CRB to come back. If you are sending an international placement, they must have a CRB from their own country which can obtain and email/post to us. Young people aged 16-18 must have one reference. Under 16’s do not need references.
We are happy to accept and work with individuals who may have complex needs. Please contact the Volunteer Manager to arrange a meeting to discuss how we can meet your, and their, requirements.
We look forward to working with you!
