Adviser

Home based Advice volunteers who give advice to our clients are at the heart of our service and we could not manage without them. You will receive full training in the skills needed to help people deal with their problems and learn how to find the information the client needs from our extensive database. Although home based we have an inclusive and engaging working environment.

Project Support

If you enjoy a fast paced and ever changing role then our home based Project Support opportunity may be what you are looking for. The projects we run depend on economical, environmental and political issues and successful funding applications. At the moment they  include contacting clients and/or partners to raise awareness of our projects such as SCAM Awareness, Energy and Fuel Switching and Flood Victim Support.

Trustee

We are looking for people with a strategic vision, independent judgement and a willingness to give time (bi monthly 2 hour board meetings) and commitment to being a trustee. Being a trustee is a great way to get a strategic view of charity leadership. We are particularly keen to achieve a more diverse board of trustees and welcome applicant from all age groups and sectors of the community.

Social value of volunteers

Our continual training and investment in our volunteers enable them to make a huge contribution to our service. Our volunteers are vital, allowing us to reach many more people than if we were purely a paid staff-run team. In turn, volunteers benefit from gaining new skills and personal development. They also tell us the enjoy better personal wellbeing and gain satisfaction from the community engagement they experience. These positive effects on an individual’s life are well documented, but being a local Citizens Advice volunteer also enables you to make a difference in your local community. You will be helping some of the most vulnerable people in Rotherham with excellent quality of advice and information, ensuring they are not disadvantaged by not knowing their rights and responsibilities.
