As part of our ongoing development we’re seeking a small number of committed volunteers with the willingness and energy to work alongside staff in supporting the services on offer.
What are Volunteer Placements?
Volunteer Placements are short periods of unpaid work experience opportunities. They’re really flexible and are intended to give you a taste of a particular aspect of working with Hope GB. This can enable you to use a skill or draw on experience you already have, or can give you an insight into a future career opportunity. This flexibility also means that you don’t feel obliged to volunteer on a longer term basis. However, where possible, we do ask volunteers to complete the whole period of their placement.
Why are these on offer?
Hope GB is reliant on the input and assistance of volunteers, and we realise how valuable it is to have fresh ideas and the ongoing hands-on support needed to make our exciting plans possible. So, we really need you, and appreciate different types of help during the year.
You may wish to get involved purely because you’d like to make a contribution of your time to help the charity achieve its aims. However, employers often require relevant work experience when recruiting, so a Volunteer Placement could become an important part of your career planning.
How do I apply for a Placement?
The nature of Placements can change over time, however we’ll always discuss significant changes with you.
If a DBS check is required, this will be noted in the Placement profile.
If you want to register your interest, email your CV and contact details to email@example.com. We’ll let you know more about applying for the volunteer programme as opportunities arise.
