Signpost International is a Dundee-based community development agency. Inspired by our Christian faith we work in partnership with local organisations at home and abroad to support individuals & communities to be the drivers of their own change. With education as a cross-cutting theme we focus our projects across four key areas: Food security; Sustainable livelihoods; Water, Sanitation, & Hygiene (WASH); and Global citizenship.
While much of our work over the past three decades has focused on overseas programmes, since 2006 we have grown and strengthened our domestic activities to include a Global Citizenship Education programme and more recently a food security & food waste programme from our base at the Roundhouse in Dundee.

Our vision is for an equitable world where poverty and injustice are eliminated, people thrive and communities flourish; for this to be realised we need to have sufficient funds to sustain and grow our programmes to meet the needs of the communities in which we work at home and abroad. Last year our projects positively impacted the lives of more than 31,000 people globally – a figure anticipated to increase this year.
We are looking for an outstanding individual to join our small core team of staff and volunteers who are at the heart of all we do. We value our people and are more interested in the individual than a candidate ticking every box, so even if you don’t yet have all the skills but are a committed, enthusiastic person with a passion for justice and making a real difference in people’s lives we would love to hear from you.
