We want volunteer opportunities to be accessible for you, do chat to us about your needs. We can help you fill out the registration form, contact you outside of our office hours and of course you are welcome to bring a support person with you when you visit us.
The consultation with a Volunteer Advisor consists of:
Finding out about you: The advisor will ask about your current situation (location, employment, time available, etc.), your goals for volunteering, who you might like to work with and what sort of volunteering roles you might like to do.
Discussing possible volunteer roles: The advisor will provide information on relevant volunteering roles. You can discuss these roles and their suitability for your circumstances and objectives.
Taking the next step: If you find a role you are interested in, the Advisor will contact the community organisation concerned and make arrangements for them to contact you and discuss the role in more detail. There is no obligation at this stage - just an opportunity to talk about the role and find out how to get started. If you are undecided about what role(s) you are interested in, you do not have to decide straight away – you are welcome to contact us after you have given it more consideration.
A consultation with one of our advisors is not a job interview, and you don't need to bring your CV. We aim to use our knowledge of the non-profit sector to find the most suitable role for your particular situation. After that it is up to you and the organisation you have selected to discuss the role further, and the choice to proceed is always yours.
