We are a Social Enterprise, a division of Royal British Legion Industries. We specialise in producing road and rail signage for the commercial market. We also have a digital print room and some specialist engineering capabilities.
Our mission statement: To enable veterans and others* with disabilities to regain their independence through personal development involving employment and skills while providing a professional service and high quality product.
The volunteering roles mostly entail working within our manufacturing facility. Volunteers, depending on their interests will try out new skills under supervision: from using machinery in sign-making to helping with packaging our products and dispatch. We also take on fulfilment tasks on a few set days each month and these tend to be less demanding but an opportunity to work in a small group while having a blether in a fairly relaxed environment. We see fulfilment as a growth area.
More skilled volunteers may find that they are able to apply for paid roles (Living Wage) when vacancies arise. There is no pressure for people to do this and nor is there any guarantee, however, our most recent recruit volunteered for 5 weeks (1 day/week) before securing a job after interview. Paid employees stay with us for 18 months and we help to secure work beyond SBMC in the lead up to the end of their contract: so opportunities for paid work will come round.
*We are a service charity but also help non-military people with disabilities.
We’re a new charity set up to help with the rescue and rehoming of cats. Our main aim is to build our own centre to do this and our whole team are committed to the care and welfare of cats. We work with other small charities to achieve this and our shop is raising funds to allow us to do this whilst helping rehome cats.
Our volunteers work in teams of two at all times in the shop. Serving the public, maintaining stock on shop floor, sorting donations handed into us at shop, keeping shop clean and neat at all times,
We do an induction at the shop with every volunteer, find suitable buddy for them, show how to sort donations ie separate, store and trash. They, if needed, will also be taught to operate the till.
Our morningshift is 10-1 and afternoon is 1-4.
We also need volunteer with a driving licence as we sometimes area asked to collect/deliver things from and to customer. Costs would be reimbursed
Able to work with other people, Pleasant, friendly and confident attitude would be advantageous for serving the public and being first point of contact with our charity.
Due to handling money and serving public we would ask for the volunteers to be over 18. Due to size of premises at the moment we can’t take someone in a wheelchair. Hopefully in the future
