Work With Us

We’re a highly flexible organisation that relies almost entirely on volunteers to exist. However, we do occasionally have vacancies within our permanent staff - more details can be found on our Careers page. 

Find out more about how we work… and how you can help.
MANAGEMENT
Our Executive Committee looks after the day-to-day running of MAWS, and comprises anywhere from 3-7 members at any one time. The vast majority of everyday tasks are undertaken by two core committee members and hence we are always on the look-out for Maun residents with a little spare time.
 
Whatever your skills – marketing, IT, design, fundraising, grant seeking, cooking, shopping, organising, or even just fetching and carrying – we’ve got space in our friendly little organisation for people who are committed to making a difference to animals’ lives in Botswana.
 
VOLUNTEER VETS & VET NURSES
We welcome volunteer vets and vet nurses year round to work in our veterinary clinic. In return for donating your time and expertise, we provide a high standard of self-catering accommodation just a couple of minutes’ walk from our clinic premises; food and beverages; and a cleaning service.
 
However, it won’t be the facilities you’ll be raving about, but the incredible experience of volunteering for a worthy cause in one of Africa’s most beautiful countries. If you’ve got 2 years’ post qualification experience, we’d love to hear from you.
 
RESEARCHERS
We’re always interested in assisting with research projects that share our mission to prevent indiscriminate breeding, transmissible disease and human-inflicted cruelty in domestic animals.
 
We’re particularly interested in research that investigates the prevalence of infectious diseases in the region, and whether domestic dogs are a vector of transmitting these diseases to wildlife. 

We’re also interested in monitoring the efficacy of our sterilisation campaign through calculating and tracking the number of dogs in Maun over a period of years.
