Citizens Advice North Hertfordshire would not be able to function without its volunteers and we are extremely grateful to everyone who gives up their time to work with us.
But we hope that this is a two way process and that our volunteers also gain a lot from their work with us. We offer an opportunity to ‘give something back’ and provide help to people in your local community. You will be meeting new people and working as part of a friendly and supportive team. You will be learning new skills, developing your experience, and have access to quality training.
All our volunteers have a different reason for coming to us, but all find it a fulfilling, enjoyable and stimulating experience.
What kind of a time commitment do you ask for?
This depends on the role and the amount of training that is needed. For example, we usually ask for two 4 hour sessions a week if you are going to be an Adviser, but the time commitment may be different or more flexible for other roles. Do get in touch with us if you would like to discuss before submitting an application.
How do I volunteer?
First, have a look round our website and read the outlines of roles we typically have available for volunteers. Then fill in our application form and return it to us. It is helpful if you give us an indication of the type of role you would like to do.
What happens next?
We will be in touch as soon as possible to acknowledge receipt of your application form. You will then be invited to an information morning which are held twice a year. This is an opportunity for you to find out more about what we do and the specific roles we currently have available for volunteers. If you wish to proceed with your application after this, you will be invited to a selection interview.
