We are looking for an enthusiastic volunteer to support the work of Volunteer Now in Belfast, Northern Ireland, especially the Outreach and Engagement work and Youth Team.
Volunteer Now works to promote, develop and support volunteering across Northern Ireland and would be delighted to to welcome an Erasmus + volunteer to support the organisation in undertaking the following tasks:
– supporting events and activities undertaken by the organisation
– managing databases and the distribution of information
– preparing information leaflets and information to be distributed via social media, e.g. twitter, facebook and the website
– any other task we feel may develop and enhance your experience with us.
The volunteer will be based primarily in the Outreach and Engagement Team but will also support other activities across the organisation.
ACCOMMODATION, FOOD AND TRANSPORT ARRANGEMENTS
This project is co-ordinated by Bryson and the volunteer will live in a shared house along with volunteers from other projects. The volunteer will have his/her own bedroom and will share the living room, kitchen and bathroom with the other volunteers. They will receive cash each week as pocket money/money for food.
The house will be within cycling distance of the project and Volunteer Now provides bikes to their E+ volunteers.
TRAINING DURING THE PROJECT
In addition to the induction/orientation training provided on arrival in Belfast, the volunteer will receive induction into Volunteer Now, including relevant policies and procedures.
Depending on the training being delivered during the volunteer’s placement, it may be possible for the volunteer to attend training on best practice in involving volunteers and other relevant volunteer-involving best practice.
The volunteer will attend on arrival and mid-term trainings.
The volunteer should have good conversational skills in English, since the role will involve face to face activities with the public, an ability to use social media, IT and be willing to embrace the work of Volunteer Now.
Those applying should have a proven interest in volunteering.
This placement is open to volunteers with physical disabilities, but unfortunately we cannot host a volunteer using a wheelchair since the accommodation is not fully accessible.
