The Salvation Army Employment Plus has opportunities for people with many different experiences and backgrounds to volunteer their time and skills to help us help people back into employment.
We believe in helping people to overcome any current problems they may face such as housing or financial problems or lack of self-confidence and work-related skills. Just 60 minutes a week might make the world of difference to someone.
Could you spare time to:
- Act as a mentor to advise, support and encourage one or more jobseeker?
- Speak to your employer about providing work experience placements, interview practice or job vacancies?
- Bring specific skills in HR, finance, IT, business advice or personal development or offer help in CV-writing, job-searching, self-employment, interview technique or computer skills?
- Or just help out in one of our local corps?
Peter says “I currently volunteer for 20 hours a week and I usually do 4 to 5 hours a day during the evenings and afternoons and I’m looking for regular work. Volunteering here has given me something to put on my CV and boosted my self-respect and confidence.”
