Dear Aspirant,


Thanks for putting up your query at www.careerguide.com! Well, your question is very broad. Answering your questions, without adequate information about your area of study, and career interests. I would specifically like to learn from you about your preferred area of work, your interests, and skills as develop sector is vast.

I will try to provide broad answer, which may perhaps help you.

Non-government organizations work on various issues that affect humanity. Areas can be agriculture, pollution, global warming, disaster risk reduction, public health & nutrition, gender equality, domestic violence, child development, human rights, water and sanitation etc.

On the top of these broad areas, many organizations have their way to deal with problems and take up specific roles to bring desired change int their area . Some organizations focus on research, program implementation, advocacy, capacity building, technical support etc.

Preferred qualification to work in development sector is Masters degree in preferred area of interest where NGOs are working. Based on your qualification, you can work in the capacity of grass root implementer, team leader to program director.  There are various roles you can take up as per your qualification:

Admin (Admin coordinator, manager, director)

Program (Coordinator, officer, director, CEO)

HR (Coordinator, officer, manager, director)

Professional service provider/consultants (doctor, engineer, counselor, psychologist, dietician, proposal writer, program evaluator, teacher etc.)


Hope this is helpful. If you still have queries, feel free to revert back.

With Best Wishes,
