Provide a warm and friendly welcome to our visitors
Reception / Meet and greet volunteers needed for Launchpad Reading in RG1
Could you be the smiling face welcoming people to Launchpad?
Launchpad is a charity that helps some of Reading’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged people to turn their lives around and fulfil their potential. We house, support and empower people so they can make this change.
We’re looking for 3 Meet & Greet Volunteers to join our Supported Housing Team and help with greeting our clients, volunteers and the public visiting Launchpad. The Volunteers will be assisting the Supported Housing Team in delivering this vital service, by helping to manage the large volume of face-face and telephone enquiries and visitors we receive each day. In addition volunteers will be asked to assist with some basic admin tasks.
The perfect candidate for this role will be a warm, friendly individual, with good verbal and written communication skills, and be a good listener. A basic knowledge of Microsoft Office is essential.
Previous experience working with our client group would be ideal (but not essential).
