Health Connector Volunteer Recruitment: Interviews, Inductions and Training Postponed


Interviews, inductions and training for our volunteer recruitment opportunites, have been postponed untill further notice!  

In the mean time you can still apply and our Volunteer & Outreach Coordinator, will get in touch as soon as possible. 
We would love new volunteers who can assist with the following areas:

  • Community Outreach -  (Use your listening and communication skills to listen to service users and provide them with information, at a time when they need it the most.)
  • Social Media - (Use your media skills and creativity to share news, awareness raise and support our campaigns online.)
  • Research & Data Analysis - (Use you eye for detail and research skills within the health & social care sector, so we can understand the patients journey.)

What will you get from us:

  • Make a difference - (You will be helping your local community but all of our volunteers are also given the opportunity to help with our large projects, this is where we see some big changes and we love to keep our volunteers involved with this.)
  • Support - (We are a friendly team, with a great support network. We welcome all volunteers and provided a flexible volunteering experience to suit your needs.)
  • Experience - (Our volunteering opportunities provide volunteers with the chance to understand the health & social care sector. It's a great stepping stone for people who are unsure which way to go with a career path. We also provide references after a period of time volunteering with us, which helps with job applications.) 
  • Training - (We deliver a four module training course, as well as complimentary training opportunities throughout the year.)
