AOAV is always interested in enthusiastic volunteers willing to devote some of their time to a charity that has a far reach and seeks to reduce the incidence and impact of global armed violence.

A volunteer role at AOAV might suit a recent graduate still contemplating what career path to choose, someone seeking to gain experience under their belt in the humanitarian research sector or someone who has retired and is keen to keep engaged in the world of research and advocacy.

We welcome volunteers from all walks of life.

There are many opportunities at AOAV for volunteers. Our key areas for volunteer input is research and social media advocacy.


If you are interested in research opportunities, working on reports on explosive violence harm and assisting in investigations into the arms trade, then please contact Iain Overton – ioverton@aoav.org.uk
