What volunteers do we need?

Advisers – All new advisers are trained to be brief assessors first. As a brief assessor  you will likely be the first person a client speaks to when they visit one of our local office walk-in sessions; calls our helpline or reaches out to us via email or online webchat. Our advisers are critical to our business operations and we couldn’t provide our services without them. 

Receptionists – Receptionists are an integral part of the team, managing ‘front-of-house’ at our offices in Stafford, Cannock, Rugeley and Codsall. You will need to have a confident personality for this role, and a patient, empathic and assertive approach; as well as the ability to create a positive and professional first impression to clients and other visitors.

Admin/Support – Occassionally we need help with supporting our core admin staff conducting back-end administration tasks. These tasks support both our voluntary advisers and our paid specialists. To help us with this role, you will need to be organised, methodical and prepared to learn a variety of different systems to support our various teams, with a good understanding of working on computers in a clerical environment.
