Individual volunteering opportunities
Below are details of current, individual volunteering opportunities that have a finite number of spaces and are recruited to on an ad hoc basis. Each advert should specify the number of volunteers needed and will be taken down when a successful candidate is recruited. These adverts do not have closing dates and therefore we suggest that if you’re interested, you submit your application as soon as practical to avoid disappointment.
Recruitment to all of these roles is handled by the RISE Volunteering Department. _______________________________________________________________________
Punjabi-Speaking Recovery Assistant
We are currently looking to recruit a specialist Punjabi-speaking volunteer and one or more to this exciting role in Southall. Based in our West Hub, the Punjabi-Speaking Recovery Assistant will work alongside our specialist Punjabi-Speaking Recovery Worker to primarily support those accessing RISE services but whose language skills include Punjabi but not English. The role may also include supporting English-speaking service users as a secondary priority.
Regular duties will include conducting initial and comprehensive assessments, risk assessments, coordinating the treatment provision for a small caseload of service users, data entry as well as occasional reception cover. No previous experience is needed as we will fully induct and support you, but all applicants should have an interest in working with people, a non judgmental attitude and the ability to learn quickly and work independently. All applicants must be fluent in English and Punjabi and have good written communication skills in English.
We are ideally looking for applicants who can offer two or more days per week on Mondays and Wednesdays, but wcan also accept applications from those who could offer one or the other. Assistance is needed 9am-5pm.
