We are looking for young people who are keen to share their enthusiasm for volunteering with others and to help Volunteer Midlothian spread the word about the Saltire Awards. As a Saltire Ambassador you will be part of panel with other young people with the important responsibility of deciding who deserves to receive the Saltire Summit Award. The panel will meet 2-3 times over a year and decide on up to 12 successful Summit Achievers.
This is a flexible role which can be adapted to suit your skills and interests – there will be extra opportunities to help promote volunteering at school presentations and recruitment fairs, and also to take on the important role of presenting the Summit Awards.
You must have achieved your 50 hour Saltire Award and be aged between 12 and 25 to volunteer in this role. All of the time that you give will count further towards your own Saltire hours.
Experience required: The role requires young people who are experienced in volunteering themselves and who can communicate with other people to promote volunteering and to make decisions as part of a group
