Current opportunity

Are you an enthusiastic public speaker looking to volunteer your services for Veterans charity Erskine? Well, we want to hear from you! Whether you are looking for some experience in public speaking or have 25+ years experience, as long as you can communicate a passion for the 1,000 Service and Ex-Service men and women we support and care for each year, we need you! We would be asking you to give presentations to our fantastic supporters telling them about the wonderful care and support given to our Veterans. Ultimately, we want you to inspire people to believe they can make a difference by supporting and donating to our cause. In return for your valuable support we ensure that volunteering for Erskine is a fulfilling and worthwhile experience. All our Volunteer Speakers will be offered training and will receive a Speaker’s Information Pack including specially designed presentations and Erskine materials suitable for a wide variety of speaking scenarios, including PowerPoint presentations and slides, if you need these. You will have support from existing volunteers and our fundraising staff, with the opportunity to gain and develop skills. You will be part of a network of volunteers throughout Scotland who play a major role in raising the charities profile locally and promoting our fundraising initiatives to a diverse range of audiences.
