social impact leaders.
The Social Impact Fellow Program is a 12-month fellowship for individuals dedicated to changing the way we approach global healthcare delivery.
We are looking for leaders from outside the world of medicine; for example managers, social policy, economists and researchers. The Fellow post is open to anyone with a track record of delivering change and a strong analytic mind and quantitative and qualitative research skills.
The fellowship will begin with an induction programme guiding you on the principles at Selfless and what we both hope to achieve. This will be followed by joining the Elective Aid Programme and carrying out ‘in the field’ evaluation of our projects.
Upon return, social impact fellows will spend be required to deliver their findings in a report, suggesting improvements on the way that healthcare is delivered overseas.
Frequently asked questions
We will consider all applications. Particular preference will be given to those that can demonstrate a genuine knowledge and interest in innovation, particularly with relation to global health.
Social Impact Fellows work alongside Selfless programmes’ team to identify and new technologies that could transform the way that healthcare is delivered globally. They also work on Selfless’ existing technologies, providing strategic input and ideas for growth moving forward.
Commitment is entirely flexible. We will work with you to identify projects where there is potential for partnership but this will span over a 12 month period and may involve a visit to Bangladesh.
All reasonable expenses will be paid.
Selfless gave me the opportunity to meet amazing young people who I will never forget and never would have met otherwise.
Working for Selfless led from one opportunity to another. I’ve since gone on to film and produce health related documentaries for major outlets like Channel 4.
It’s easy to lose sight of the bigger picture when you’re busy with a 9 to 5, volunteering for Selfless helped broaden my horizons and bring everything back into perspective.
You can sit back and complain about the woes of the world but Selfless pushed me out the front door to actually go and do something to make it better.
I can’t think of a time in my life where I felt so grateful for things I had as I did when I was in Bangladesh. Every human deserves to at least have simple things like running water, food and free healthcare.
