Volunteer for BID
BID could not function without the support and commitment of volunteers in all three offices. We offer training and experience, and in return ask that people commit to a certain length of time during office hours (Monday to Friday). Reasonable travel expenses are payable.
For more general information about volunteering at BID please read the volunteer information pack which can be downloaded on the right hand side of the page.
We recruit for casework volunteers on an ongoing basis. Placements are subject to availability and demand is high. We prioritise those with the most relevant experience and who can offer the most time commitment. In turn, volunteers receive training in asylum, immigration, human rights law, bail and detention to enable them to take exams to qualify as Level 1 caseworkers with the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner. Please complete the volunteer application form, which can be downloaded on the right hand side of this page, and return it to the address noted on the form. Research & policy volunteers and adminstrative volunteers are taken on at irregular intervals depending on our workload.
From time to time BID Oxford will need to recruit volunteers at our office on Cowley Road. If you are interested in working with us, please apply to Ionel Dumitrascu at and forward a copy of your CV with a letter explaining why you are interested in working at BID and what days you would be available. We are an extremely busy office and regret that we will be unable to reply to your application unless we currently a vacancy at the time you apply.
