How Can You Step Up?
There are three different ways in which you can become a part of StepUP Pakistan.
Level 1: Become a Member
This is the most basic level of recruitment into StepUP Pakistan. Membership is open to absolutely everyone and is free. To become a member, sign up here by filling in this form. It will take less than 5 minutes to do this.
We also urge you to join our Facebook page here.
Becoming a member is the best way to support StepUP Pakistan and its cause but if you want to be involved in our projects, please read on.
Level 2: Become a Volunteer
Once you have become a member of StepUP Pakistan by signing up [here], the first thing to do is to choose a Project/post that you would like to volunteer for. You can find a list of Projects currently operating under StepUP Pakistan here and information about all the current vacancies that we have here and pick a role that interests you the most.
Once you have decided on a role, all you need to do is fill this Volunteer form here. Make sure you fill in all required sections, especially the one where we ask you for a personal statement. This personal statement is what helps us make our selections and to match your talents to the tasks we ask you to do. A good personal statement dramatically increases your chances of getting promoted from a Volunteer to a Project Leader or even a Core Team Member!
Once you have submitted your application, you will be e-mailed a date and time for a Skype meeting. You will be contacted by a Recruitment Officer from StepUP Pakistan who will discuss your role in your chosen Project. Depending on your interests, availability and skills, you will be assigned responsibilities.
While deciding whether you want to apply to be a Volunteer or not, please keep the following things in mind:
- Volunteers are usually required to interact with their Project Leaders and work in collaboration with other volunteers via Skype.
- Volunteers are assigned tasks by the Project Leaders, which they are required to complete within a given amount of time.
- Since stepUp is a results-oriented organization, only those volunteers who deliver will be allowed to continue.
Level 3: Become an Office Bearer
Office Bearers represent the highest level of recruitment into the organization. Core
Team Directors, Project Leaders and The Executive Director are some instances of Office Bearers. Office Bearers are essentially volunteers but since a much higher level of responsibility, commitment and skill is required for running key positions in the organization, a separate process has been designed for their selection.
People who are already working as volunteers for the organization are usually given preference in the selection for Office Bearers. However, whenever the need arises to recruit a new Office Bearer or to replace an old one, we provide information about the vacancy on our Facebook page here.
Anyone who feels that he/she possesses the required skills and is interested in volunteering for the role can fill in and submit the online Office Bearer Application Form [here].
After the deadline for sending Applications expires, the StepUP recruitment staff contacts short-listed applicants through e-mail and a Skype meeting is scheduled so that the Recruitment Staff can get to know more about the skills and aptitude of each applicant.
After holding online meetings with each of the selected applicants, the ones best suited to the task at hand are chosen on the basis of merit and they are handed over the responsibility of the particular office.
Other strong applicants are usually given other posts based on their skills and aptitude.
