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!

The project coordinator will facilitate the digital skills clubs, providing equipment, learning materials and refreshments. Volunteers will come along and help learners, either one-to-one or in small groups, on a range of topics, depending on what learners would like to cover using resources provided by the coordinator.
Volunteers will visit housebound learners within their own homes for one hour per week to provide tuition on the computer. Tuition will last for 8 weeks and will generally cover basic digital skills such as using internet and email, online shopping & social media, but can be flexible dependent on what the learner would like to cover.
Volunteers would be taken through how to use the Atom database system and talked with about what goes in the index. They would then be able to go and read the papers on the microfilm machine (which they'll also be taught to use) and record the contents so that others can find information more easily. Someone will always be on hand to help.
Tayside Re-users uses databases to record and manage the sales of goods and stock movements from collection to sale as well as calculating the savings in weight and CO2 of items which would otherwise be thrown into landfill. This role will involve transferring information from accompanying documentation to the database and then filing the documentation. This role will give you the skills and experience you need to work in many organisations.

Carers Link provides information and support to unpaid carers. As part of that we record podcasts on a range of topics of interest to carers in East Dunbartonshire, as well as our office banter podcasts which let carers get to know Carers Link staff and the work we do.
The podcasts are recorded on zoom about once a month, and are normally 20 to 30 minutes long with up to 4 people taking part. The podcast editor is responsible for editing the sound for clarity as well as adding music at the start and end of the recording. Editing is normally done using free sound editing software, which can be done at home or in Carers Link’s office.
The volunteer can also upload the podcast to our Bluberry account and prepare the show notes, but this is not a requirement.
