PUM – Netherlands Senior Experts
International job agency
PUM has played an important role in the field of international development
assistance for the past 26 years, sending senior experts to more than 70 countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and Central
and Eastern Europe. Upon request, PUM’s experts offer their skills and experience to businesses and organizations in places where these are
most needed. PUM projects are intense and generally take two till three weeks.
In the course of their careers, PUM’s advisers have gained extensive experience in nearly every conceivable field. These experts are
independent and work on a voluntary basis (they receive no wages). Since its establishment in 1978, PUM has become Europe’s largest ‘job agency’
for professional volunteers who wish to work in developing countries.
