19 posts in this topic

Hello, this is my 1st post.

I am seriously looking for NGO jobs in Thailand.

Does anyone know of any vacancie in NGOs working with Rural Development, Refugee, Social Forestry etc.? I am very passionate about such works.

And how much salary should one expect usually?

Thank you.

There is much more availability in Cambodia due to lower skill levels in the Cambodian workforce. But relevant experience and qualifications (graduate degree in related field) are needed. If you have these and are interested in long or short term work in Cambodia PM me the details & I may be able to suggest places.

Doubt you will get anywhere in Thailand except as a volunteer.

Sorry to add this Sheryl, but you are very wrong.

UN has spots opened, Save the Children (various nations) have opened spots. Most of the TOP NGOs are run by westerners and Thai locals as support. Your chances really depend on your connections as these jobs are not in the local papers and never will be.

My infomation comes from being there and done that situation over the past few years in that field.

I'm also in that field & have been for 25 years. It is true that UN agencies (which are not NGOs) and some of the larger NGOs recruit internationally for top positions but in my experience the latter will tend to give priority to any qualified Thai applicants (for obvious reasons since salary expectations are lower) and fill with expats only if no qualified local applies. Quite a number of international NGOs have Thai country directors. Major exception is when it is a Thailand-based regional program.

Also, for top management positions, both UN agencies and NGOs look in-house worldwide first. It is not easy and takes a lot of experience and seniority for someone outside the UN system or outside the NGO to get a top position and my impression from the OP is that he/she is a relative newcomer.

Still think the pickings are going to be slim in Thailand for an expat just breaking into the field...although might be able to pick up some short term consultancies if has appropriate qualifications.

World Vision works with Burmese migrant communities - not exactly refugees but in some ways similiar. If willing to volunteer or take short-term work helping with things that need a native English speaker (e.g. report and proposal writing), they might be a possibility.

There are several groups in the north of Thailand working with Burmese refugees, most opportunities there would be volunteer at least to start with and need is for people with professional skills in areas like health, education, international law.

Now that is the real problem for him.

Just a side note as im really curiouse now, sinse when is the UN not an NGO? Could it be your thinking United Nations and im thinking Unicef? Sorry for spelling all, its a fast,hurry up offense today.

Sheryl seems to have much more experience here with NGO's in Thailand than i myself have. I would advise you to ask her some more questions as i have only been at it in BKK now for 5 years.

Hi Nokmdk and Sheryl,

Thanks for your comments and info. I have talked to various UN agencies but the chances for a freshy is really slim though I am not expecting high salary. And most job advertisements on the paper actualy has been decided beforehand. So, eventhough there is the degree qualification, I feel that connection and work experience plays greater importance.

I read on the newspaper about Burmese refugee aid NGO in the Northeast, which sounds interesting, but the problem is the post requires someone familiar with international Law. Really, I don't mind any jobs even working for AIDS children if there is a chance.

If you guys don't mind, I would like to forward you my CV.

Thanks again.

Cheers,

Bann

Many of the int'l ngo's and the UN have a quota system for hiring foreigners and save those for the specialty technical positions. These people are almost always hired from abroad - e.g. not among those already here. There are exceptions though..many people contract as consultants. You need to have a specialty I'm afraid - passion ain't enough..

Forget UN agencies, those are the jobs NGO staff dream of (better pay & long term career path) and only the top few get. HOWEVER, if you are open to worldwide placement, you could look into the UN Volunteer program, which places entry level people with UN agencies and which can be a springboard to a career in the UN system. But to apply you have to agree to accept worldwide assignment.

Otherwise, think NGO and consider whether you are willing to volunteer at least initially. If you either post or PM me details of your degree and relevant experience (don't need full CV, jsut what's relevant) I'll let you know of any specific agencies I'd suggest.

Oh - one other thing -- what is your nationality? Because both UK and Canada have volunteer programs where they place people with NGOs in the developing world...and the "volunteer"part is not as bad as it sounds, i.e. there is housing, stipend to live on.

having spent a fair bit of time there,i know that mae sot near the burma border has a lot of ngo organisations running there.most of the westerners you see there are either volunteers or ngos,helping with the burmese refugees.

how easy it is to get work with these organisations,i dont know.

there seem to be people who just turn up & get volunteer work there.

I hope your use of the word 'even' in the above context is due to English not being your mother tongue. 'Even' in the above generally means 'last resort', which is not perhaps the best way for a budding NGO to describe children with AIDS etc.

Hi Simon, people working among AIDS children are doing great job. I am not discriminating peoples with AIDS, but that is the general reaction. I cannot deny this fact, although I would like to do the work.

Thanks Sheryl, I am not looking for volunteer position at the moment. Will contact you soon.

HI! Very interesting thread here! I am also looking for a job in Cambodia. My area of expertise is writing project proposals, research, proj. mgt., monitoring and evaluation, institution & capacity building and I have experience in ECCD. Hope you could pass on job vacancies you know. Thanks so much!

How neatly that phrase sums up the attitude of many NGO workers, and not just in Thailand.

By the way - do you know what "NGO" means in Thai??

There is very little in the way of job opportunities for expats in NGOs in Thailand, even the international NGOs are pretty much staffed by Thais.

There is much more availability in Cambodia due to lower skill levels in the Cambodian workforce. But relevant experience and qualifications (graduate degree in related field) are needed. If you have these and are interested in long or short term work in Cambodia PM me the details & I may be able to suggest places.

Doubt you will get anywhere in Thailand except as a volunteer.

HI! Very interesting thread here! I am also looking for a job in Cambodia. My area of expertise is writing project proposals, research, proj. mgt., monitoring and evaluation, institution & capacity building and I have experience in ECCD. Hope you could pass on job vacancies you know. Thanks so much!

What is ECCD? Not familiar with the acronym. Also what technical fields do you have proposal development, mgmt & M&E experience in?

If you can advise on these points I may be able to give some ideas of where to look.

There are regular job ads in the Cambodia Daily which I believe you can arrange to get mailed to you or view online.

My field is basically social work - community, family, children, women and other related areas. ECCD is Early Childhood Care and Development.

By the way, I recently got an email from a friend who is working in Cambodia. She said that it is hard to find a long term job there since the NGOs are just in the process of localizing. Thus, all she gets are short term consultancies. Hence, I am also setting my sights on Vietnam. From what I heard it is easier to find a job there. Is this true?

Hi All,

Spent several years as a consultant with UNHCR in Sudan during the mid-80's Ethiopian crisis. Loved it. As to your immediate need to access UN and NGO jobs, the best site IMHO is here:

http://www.reliefweb.int/vacancies/ same as next

http://www.reliefweb.int/

Here's the 1st page of today's selection for Asia; you can access the data readily via any number of combinations, and have them email you regularly with job vacancies. Acess the job you are interested in and klik to be takenb to their particular site with all the specs for that job...

Good luck!
