Volunteers are a vital part of life at Phoenix, supporting trainees in all areas - kitchen, garden, concrete factory and woodsheds.
Experience is not essential, but patience is, along with strong communication skills and a desire to help and motivate others.
It is wonderful when volunteers bring skills and expertise, but equally the Phoenix team are happy to share theirs, recognising that for some, volunteering is a stepping stone towards employment, as well as being an enjoyable and worthwhile activity in its own right.
Volunteers usually work on-site, but we would also love to hear from you if you have ‘back office’ experience and would be happy to be a home-based volunteer, coming in occasionally to ‘touch base’ with us. Assistance with fundraising, advertising and promotion is particularly welcomed.
We provide site-specific training where necessary and a free two course meal is available at lunchtime. All on-site volunteers are required to have an enhanced check with the Disclosure and Barring Service (previously CRB).
If you are interested in volunteering at Phoenix, then please do contact us to arrange a time to visit and learn more.
