Community Centre Reception Volunteer

Do you have great organisational abilities? Would you like to brush up on your customer service skills and gain experience with admin tasks?  This role would suit someone who is thinking about getting back to work and would like to gain some confidence. The Receptionist is our first point of contact to the community and must be a positive and helpful representative of the community centre and the management charity Helping Hands for the Blind. Volunteering is a very important role, and without the dedicated team of volunteers we would be unable to offer all the services that we do.

We also require volunteer support at one of our yearly events at the Roger Morris centre, which are currently an Easter Fayre, a Summer Fayre, a Halloween Party and a Christmas Fayre/Disco, and if you are available for any of these extra support is always welcomed.

Duties would include general admin, answering phones and taking messages, ensuring all notices and information is current in and around the community centre, assisting with general enquiries and supporting the centre managers.

We are looking for a keen individual ideally for three days a week,  2 hours a day, these can be hours to fit around school time, ideally 11-1 or 12-2, however we could discuss these hours for the right person.


You do not need to have any related qualifications for this role but you should be friendly, reliable, and trustworthy and have good communication skills.

You will be given induction training into the various aspects of the work.

You will receive on-going support from helping hands for the blind.
