Role and Opportunity Details
Reception and admin support.
We are opening a new counselling hub on Bishopgate in January 2022. This centre will offer free and low cost counselling support to members of our community. We will have counsellors working in 3 counselling rooms across Monday to Wednesday.
We are looking for someone to support our centre by offering evening reception cover. This role will involve sitting in our reception/waiting room and greeting clients while they attend their counselling appointments. Volunteers will also answer the phones and lock up the building at the end of the day. If volunteers would like to take on more duties over time we are happy to look at this or offer training.
This post is for 3 evenings and we therefore are happy for this to be filled by one or by up to three volunteers, one each evening.
