Starfish field coordinator supports our activities inside the RIC Lesvos camp. The main responsibilities are planning, evaluating, and staffing. The role involves coordinating transportation to and from the camp, organising translators for meetings as needed, and making sure that security processes are followed.
Starfish distributes boxes of essential items for new mothers in the camp. This role involves helping to prepare and check the baby boxes before they are distributed, updating the checklist, organising inventory to keep track of donations, and managing photos and posts for Facebook and other social media.
Marketing & Media
You will play an important role in helping us keep our website and social media relevant and up to date. You will create marketing and social media campaigns that support Starfish’s values. You will work with Starfish project managers to make sure that project updates are written and posted weekly on Facebook and other social media channels.
Warehouse & Supply
Warehouse and supply volunteers help us manage logistics. Volunteers are responsible for maintaining the inventory, delivery and transportation of items, coordinating the supply of baby boxes, attending meetings relating to non-food items, and liaising with other NGOs on Lesvos.
Communications & Fundraising
Fundraising volunteers have a key role to help us keep our existing projects running. The role involves searching for calls for action, organising fundraising activities, and making sure that funding offers, donations of money, or gifts are fulfilled. Volunteers help write proposals, report back to funding organisations, update funding platforms and reports, and keep timelines relating to funding up to date.
OpenSpace is the Starfish operational hub in the centre of Mytilene (the main town and port of Lesvos). It’s busy every day, used by local residents as well as refugees. OpenSpace has a library, and hosts regular workshops and events. OpenSpace volunteers help us by organising events, ensuring the premises remains suitable for daily visitors, replying to emails, keeping our database up to date, and conducting other admin as needed.
