Volunteering Opportunity: support to the Digital Financial Services (DFS) team strategy process

Opportunity International’s Digital Financial Services (DFS) team is committed to enhancing the digital capabilities of last-mile service providers, including Opportunity’s core programmes and financial institution partners, to effectively achieve digital inclusion for families living in extreme poverty. Digitisation is increasingly core to financially engaging hard-to-reach populations such as women, refugees, and people with disabilities. 

As a volunteer for the DFS team, you will gain valuable insights into current DFS practices and priorities, and will be working with the small friendly DFS team, who work remotely - based in the UK and Uganda.

Main Responsibilities:

  • Become familiar with Opportunity International’s (OI) DFS strategy and Dream Book
  • Develop Opportunity client personas in consultation with OI’s global teams
  • Develop DFS programme summary sheets in consultation with various OI stakeholders
  • Attend weekly DFS team meetings to update on progress (usually Thursday mornings at 9am BST)

Skills and Experience:

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills, including the ability to speak to people from across the world and distil information clearly
  • Self-starter. The DFS team will be on hand to support and answer questions, but we would be grateful for someone who is able to run with the project brief
  • It would be helpful if you have some knowledge of financial inclusion/digital financial services

This position could start immediately and is likely to require commitment of between 2-3 days per week for 4-6 weeks. The role would suit remote working and will be paid £10 allowance/day (lunch and internet/working at home/travel).

To apply for the volunteer position, or for more information, please contact [email protected] with your CV (2 page max) and a 1 page Cover Letter detailing why you are interested in this position by 31st May 2022.

We’re looking for a volunteer to start as soon as possible.
