What we offer?

Working Well values the work of volunteers and so we want the volunteer to benefit from volunteering.  This could mean having the opportunity to contribute to the work of the Trust by sharing your experience and knowledge, and for this to be appreciated and recognised by us.  It could also mean that you have opportunities to learn new skills or to have practical experience that will help you in your own job search or career development.

To make sure we recruit the right volunteer and they are clear about their role every volunteering opportunity will have a clear job description and information about the opportunities linked to the role.  Where appropriate we will also indicate any time commitment for the role, for example how many hours a week and for how many weeks.  Each volunteer has a supervisor to make sure you are being supported in the role. 

Induction

All volunteers will be given an induction to the charity. This will normally take place within the volunteer’s first week and will include discussions with the Project Manager about procedures and expectations whilst volunteering with WWT.
