Market Entry Researcher (voluntary) - South Africa

Australian Volunteers Program

About the assignment

The Siyakholwa Development Foundation is focused on community projects and their mission is to help communities and people become independent, realise the skills that they possess and the potential of available resources. Their projects help people to break the cycle of poverty, so that they can reach their potential and ultimately transform the economy and quality of life in their communities. Siyakholwa started an essential oils program as their sustainability project that would help them to fund the community work they do. Through this program they produce high quality, organic essential oils (Rosemary and Rose Geranium) together with drying some Rosemary. Their essential oils are 100% pure and have been tested by accredited laboratories.

Siyakholwa would like to assess and potentially access the Australian market so that they can export to Australia. Therefore Siyakholwa is seeking a remote volunteer to support them by conducting research on possible markets in Australia to help them gain insight into the possibility of entry into a new market. 

  • In this remote volunteer assignment, you will conduct research into entering the Australian market and selling of the essential oils, including import/export regulations. You will also explore potential buyers of the products.
  • To be successful for this role, you will have demonstrated experience in assessing markets and exploring business viability. You will also bring skills in research and report writing. Knowledge of essential oils, or the health and wellbeing sector would be an advantage.
  • You will gain the opportunity to make a positive contribution to a fundamental organisation focused on supporting local communities to increase household income especially in relation to the current COVID pandemic and the impacts on households affected by poverty.
