We are looking for volunteers from all kinds of backgrounds to support local people with their problems.
The charity supports over 3,000 people in Eastbourne to help resolve their problems every year with free, independent and confidential advice from trained advisors.
We are looking for volunteers who are able to contribute between 4 - 8 hours each week.
We are looking for Receptionists and Gateway Assessors, both of these roles are often the first port of call for client’s looking for help.
Volunteers will offer advice to people in person, online or over the phone. No experience necessary as full training will be provided. Citizens Advice volunteers come from all walks of life and choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. They include students; people getting back into work after career breaks; people with part-time jobs; carers; and people who have retired.
Volunteers are often looking for new ways to gain valuable experience and enhance their skills, or to enjoy the opportunity to work with and meet different people. They find it rewarding to support local people and make a difference to their lives.
Alan Bruzon, Chief Officer at the Bureau said:
“Our wonderful volunteers are the heart of our service - the work we do to support people in the community simply would not be possible without them.
With the current issues caused by the cost of living crisis, we need support more than ever before. As a volunteer, you’ll learn about a range of issues affecting local people and we will provide all the training and support you’ll need to work with us to help people solve their problems.
“It’s a challenging but highly rewarding role. If you’re keen to build on your skills and do something that really makes a difference, we’d love to hear from you.”
