Join the team.


Many individuals have a misconception that unless they want to work in the non-profit sector, volunteering experience counts little. However, it is a great advantage when applying for future roles and great for your employability skills. We would like to inspire our supporters to do more outside of their workplace and grow personally while helping others.

FOTBOT runs on an army of volunteers around the country. They help organise events or even represent us overseas in the territories or elsewhere - they constantly show a true passion for the British Overseas Territories.
