Reception Volunteering

We're looking for people to join our reception team, giving 4hrs per week to help out on reception.  Greeting visitors, handling calls, helping with simple queries.

We can provide training, bus ticket vouchers and a reference relevant to the work you're doing - if you're looking to gain experience in admin work, reception volunteering could be very useful to you.

You'll need good communication skills and an understanding of the importance of treating all our visitors with care and dignity.

If you're interested, sign up using this form.
