Volunteer Transcriber

  • Home-based volunteering


Description

CVS Falkirk & District are looking for volunteer transcribers to help us prepare for an upcoming exhibition celebrating volunteering and community engagement in the Falkirk & District area over the last forty years.

We have been conducting interviews with volunteers and charities to showcase the value of volunteers and the impact that volunteering has, and we are now looking to transcribe these stories so that we can use them in our exhibition! This is a lovely opportunity to hear some amazing stories and to contribute to both our exhibition and championing the charity sector!

Volunteers will receive MP3 recordings of our interviews, transcribe them in their own time and then return the typed up transcriptions to us. The interviews range in length but are between 20 and 60 minutes long, and are usually one-on-one. If you would like more information or are interested in helping us then please get in touch!
