Working at a charity

A further volunteer role for a handy person

Back in September we found a brilliant volunteer who works as a handy person for our charity. And we would now like to find another volunteer handy person to help with various tasks from filling-up the coffee machines, moving tables and more at our busy offices and meeting rooms.

So if you are a “handy” type looking for an opportunity to give back something to your local community and make new friends then we have the role for you. We need odd jobs doing on a regular basis, anything from changing batteries in wall clocks to putting wheelchairs together. As an organisation we are all about making reasonable adjustments, though it is a fact that for this job a level of mobility and activity is necessary due to the tasks involved.

Please contact our Business Manager, Paul Robson, for full details: paul.robson@drcbeds.org.uk
