Job Club volunteers needed

Text
I wanted to volunteer to get experience, and now I have started I think that it is really useful and I’m excited to come here and meet new people. Also, Jack helped me to look for my job which was helpful.

Every week we run 2 Job Club sessions in St Pauls, Bristol. These sessions would not happen if it wasn’t for our amazing volunteers. We are truly thankful for the work that they do, and the community are grateful for the help they receive towards job searches, CVs and more.

We are proud that the majority of our volunteers are now moving on into full-time paid roles, which their time volunteering with us helped them to get.

Unfortunately for us, this means that we now need to find a new cohort of volunteers to help with our Job Club.

What do our Job Club volunteers do?

  • Help run weekly sessions
  • Computer help to attendees
  • CV and job application help
  • Translation (if possible)
  • Job searches

If you would like to give back to your local community and have 2 – 4 hours spare each week to support our Tuesday or Thursday sessions (2pm – 4pm), please get in touch with our Job Club Lead, Jack Hinchliffe, stating why you want to volunteer and your relevant skills and availability.

From volunteers to employees

At ACH we actively encourage volunteers to join our team in order to build up their skills and work experience. These volunteer placements often turn into full-time paid roles, just like they have with Bristol staff Rashid and Khalid.

What is your business giving back?

ACH works closely with local businesses and national corporates to develop meaningful CSR programmes, by delivering life-changing services to refugees. With years of expertise on refugee resettlement and integration, and an informed, culturally sensitive approach, we can help your business to make a real difference.

Volunteers needed

Our Job Club has been getting a make-over during August. With high demands and increasing referrals, we decided to make some changes to the way we run Job Club at ACH. These included hiring a new member of staff to run and oversee all things Job Club, adding an extra Job Club session each week to enable more people to be helped and now we are looking for Job Club volunteers.
