ReBOOT Volunteer

  • VO90368


Description

ReBOOT has been going strong as a social enterprise since 1997 – and offers a complete computer recycling service that has been massively reducing the environmental impact of waste electronics in Moray, by reusing and recycling donated technology.

Refurbished computers and other devices are also donated back to people or community groups who may struggle to afford a device or sold to the community at affordable prices in our shop. We are also now producing some nifty creative products with our plastics recycling, too.

Volunteers are at the core of our success and now, we are looking for 4-5 new people to join our team.

You don’t need a background in computers to volunteer all we ask is that you are able to give a minimum 4-hour time commitment during ReBOOT’s hours of operation. This can be any day or days, Monday to Thursday, 9.30- 3.30pm. Initially we’d like you to volunteer on a regular basis, so you can see what’s involved and find a role that’s right for you.

Anything that is not reused or rebuilt is recycled, so the type of activities you'd be undertaking whilst volunteering can include:

Testing hardware, refurbishing devices or sorting and stripping devices into recyclable components
Assist in the loading/unloading and packaging of pallet shipments in the warehouse
Help keep an asset log up to date
Joining the crew on the van to pick up donations
Driving the Van ( Over 25’s only )

What We Can Offer You:

We are a friendly bunch – we want our volunteers to make connections, make friends and know that what they do and the time they give, really matters.
We offer a full induction and further training opportunities if desired.
Learn about the recycling industry and social enterprises.
Gain skills, experience and enjoy it while you do it.
Help reduce waste and help the planet!
