The voluntary helper will be supported by a member of staff and will be a vital part of a fun and energetic fundraising team.

4-7 hours per week, days and times flexible.

What skills do I require?

  1. Positive attitude
  2. Strong interpersonal skills 
  3. Willingness to learn and have fun
  4. Time management and some administrative skills 

What benefits can I expect?

  • Meeting new people
  • Excellent training opportunities for those wishing to develop their CV

  • Satisfaction and reward in knowing you are part of our students achieving their true potential

What training will be provided?

It’s important that all Treloar Voluntary Helpers have the skills to perform well in their role, to comply with policies and procedures and to interact with the students (when outlined). With this in mind Voluntary Helpers attend a comprehensive induction programme and will be supported throughout their volunteering experience.
