 We simply couldn't run our service without volunteers - could you join our team?

Trainee Adviser

Join our team of Trainee Advisers to learn how to be able to provide an effective and efficient advice service to members of the public. We are looking for a commitment of up to 12 hours a week for at least 12 months. Initially training is done in small groups and after 3 months you would start sitting in on advice interviews and gradually taking on simple interviews.

Volunteering times are 9.30am to 3pm on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays. Initially the training is done from Wareham but there is potential once fully trained to volunteer at one of our outreaches across Purbeck.
