Job Description - EXPIRED

Noah's Ark Children's Hospice are looking for volunteers to represent Noah’s Ark at various community events in Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington. It is not always possible for us to attend all events and therefore your help would really make a difference in helping us raise awareness and funds. It is hoped that volunteers can commit to supporting in this role for a minimum of 12 months, but this can be flexible.

Opportunities of the role:

  • Build connections with the local community
  • Develop public speaking skills
  • Organise effective presentations to deliver to an audience

  • Coordinate charity bag packs at supermarkets
  • Oversee charity collections at supermarkets, train stations, Brent Cross Shopping Centre

Location:

Exact locations will vary, but events will generally take place in and around North London (more specifically the London boroughs of Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey, and Islington)

Training:

At Noah’s Ark we value volunteer support, but we are also aware that not all roles are suitable for everyone.  The interview and training process is in place to ensure that the Noah’s Ark staff get to know more about you, to ensure that you are given the correct training for the role and so that you can find out if this is a role you would like to undertake.  The training process is as follows:

  • Attend a Volunteer Induction (all potential volunteers have to attend one of these sessions before they are able to get involved in any capacity)
  • Attend an informal interview (If successful at this stage the volunteer would then be invited to join the next training programme)
  • Attend Ambassador Training (this training consists of 1 evening session which will cover key messages; the power of networking; event set up and resources)

Minimum Age: 18 years

If you would like more information or to apply for the role, please email Annette Higgs at volunteering@noahsarkhospice.org.uk
