Volunteers needed

Could you help and support people in your community towards work? If the answer’s yes, you could be just the valuable volunteer we need to help with our Community Employment Hubs.

The Employment Hubs focus on offering practical advice such as CV writing, searching and applying for work, how to deal with online application forms, help with interviews and signposting people to agencies if they are having problems finding a job.

You need the desire to help others, general life experiences, as well as the enthusiasm to motivate people and raise their confidence and self-esteem. If you can spare some time you could be just the volunteer we value.
