Description

Are you enthusiastic and motivated? Are you wanting to get involved in supporting in-person events?

We have the role for you!

We are looking for Event Assistants to help us at events including coffee mornings, reminscing sessions and heritage activities. Support the No.1 Befriending Agency team to reduce loneliness and isolation by helping to facilitate our in-person events.

The No.1 Befriending Agency was formed by a group of professionals who, when working as carers for older adults, frequently experienced that the people they cared for longed for meaningful interaction in addition to the simple mechanical acts of care they received. In order to tackle this loneliness and isolation, we created a befriending service where trained volunteers visit and spend time with isolated older people.

The specific tasks for the role might include:

• Document the event through photos/videos during the event
• Working closely with volunteer coordinators to ensure the event runs smoothly
• Gather quotes from clients and volunteers about their experience during event
• Writing a blog after the event
• Help support clients during the event
• Make tea/coffee for service users

This role is flexible so you can make it work to your schedule. We will publish a programme of events for Maryhill, and you can sign up when it works for you. Events will take place between Monday-Friday, 9am-4pm.

If you are interested please click the ‘Apply’ button below (available when logged in and registered). You will then be contacted by the coordinator by email or phone call. If you have not heard back after 5 working days, the first step is to contact the organisation with the contact details provided. You could also check your junk/spam folder on your emails just in case the response is there. If that doesn’t work out then please feel free to contact Volunteer Glasgow on info@volunteerglasgow.org.
