Volunteer Refuge Assistant

Applications close on Friday 30th April 2021

Location: Town Centre, Grimsby | Voluntary Position | Days/Times: One day per week 

Do you want to work with victims and survivors of domestic abuse?
Need skills and experience?
Not sure where to start?

Women’s Aid provide support, accommodation and practical help to thousands of victims and survivors of domestic abuse.  We are currently looking for individuals to join our team at refuge in providing our ‘life saving’ and ‘life changing’ service.  We need volunteers to help us with our volume of calls to the service and to assist support workers in some of their daily tasks.

This is not a support role and is more of a reception/phone role but could give someone the skills and experience needed to go on and do support work in the future.  Successful volunteers MUST be on a career path/plan/change and you will need to evidence this – you will also need to be available for one full day per week (commitment to your chosen day, every week, is paramount). Mandatory training will be provided.

If you feel you are able to help us and are passionate about making a difference, then please read the job description and person spec in full and fill in the attached application form. Although this role is voluntary, we will undertake the strictest of recruitment procedures and training as we do with support staff.

Successful candidates will be invited for an interview on Friday 7th May 2021
