We are seeking volunteers to assist our team of staff and volunteers in raising the profile of Citizens Advice, promoting our services to potential clients, supporting fundraising activities and increasing awareness of the public.
We have 2 new volunteer opportunities:
*One to assist in publicity and promotion:
Involves helping to design and write publicity materials, develop relationships with local media and maintain our social media presence. You will have the companionship and support of an interesting and highly-motivated team of staff and volunteers.
*and one focussed on fundraising:
To help research and write funding bids to grant-making bodies. We can offer the experience of working with a nationally-affiliated charity that addresses a wide range of social issues. You will have the companionship and support of an interesting and highly-motivated team of staff and volunteers.
These roles can be carried out at home or, once the COVID19 restrictions have been lifted, at the Aberdeen Citizens Advice Bureau office, 41 Union Street, Aberdeen.
Hours are flexible, depending on funding deadlines; but volunteers are asked to be available for one day or two half days a week. Excellent training and support is provided. Volunteers receive full information and training on the organisation using online training modules and once appropriate face-to-face. All help makes a real difference and is greatly appreciated.
