The Senior Expert Corps (SEC) is a voluntary program that undertakes short-term assignments in developing countries. The SEC has 700 technical experts, ranging from craftsmen to hotel managers to marketing specialists with a lifetime of valuable professional experience. The experts are sent on voluntary assignments for 2 to 12 weeks without financial compensation, and since 1979 these experts have donated 800,000 hours of their time on over 2000 consulting assignments.

How it works:

SEC covers the international travel costs of the expert, while the host organisation is responsible for local food, accommodation and local travel expenses.

Breakfast talk:

Right now, a limited number of assignment opportunities are available in Cambodia, so don’t miss this chance to learn more! You can even sign up your organisation during this Breakfast Talk event! The Frangipani Hotel has recently benefited from the SEC program, and the general manager will be speaking so you can hear first-hand about their experience.

Cost: $15 for EuroCham members, $25 for non-members
