The Office of the Pacific Games is proud to be partnering with the Volunteer Services Abroad to secure qualified and suitable volunteers for the upcoming Samoa 2019 Pacific Games.


In July 2019, Samoa will host the Pacific Games – 22 countries, 26 sports, 5000 people.

The Office of the Pacific Games in Apia has identified areas where they need support so we have some fantastic, short-term, event-based assignments available for people keen to pass on their skills.

The assignments will run from the end of January 2019 for seven months. Your costs are covered, including a daily allowance.

This is a truly unique opportunity for you to showcase your talents while developing the skills of graphic designers in the Pacific.

At its heart this assignment is all about co-creation. You will coach local teams and faciliate creative co-design training sessions to inform the Pacific Game brand guidelines, upskilling Samoa’s up and coming design professionals in the process.

There’s currently a brand guide in place, so you’ll use that as a spring board and develop engaging design that will elevate market awareness of the Pacific Games through targeted branding collateral and design.

You’ll be working alongside a hand-picked group of local designers to deliver one of Samoa’s largest sporting events and produce informative “lessons learnt” handbook to inform future programmes of work.
