What we're after...
We are looking for someone who is interested in supporting Cambodia transition towards a cleaner energy future, supporting businesses, entrepreneurs and youth along the way.

We want someone who is passionate about making a positive contribution to the world (but not too naïve).

This is like a professional volunteer position – we can provide $USD1,000/month – but in Cambodia that goes a long way! We would also pay for your flight over here. And of course, if you do a brilliant job and get more funding in, we can negotiate this up!

Oh! and we're at Factory Phonm Penh the coolest co-working space in town!
