We need a Rota Secretary to keep our volunteer service coordinated
Administration volunteers needed for Reading Samaritans in RG1
We’re looking for an enthusiastic individual to join our team as a Rota Secretary. You’ll ensure that our listening service rota is filled and you’ll contact our volunteers by phone, email or text to ask them to fill any gaps that remain.
You’ll need to have good organisational skills, as well as good communication skills and experience of databases.
Full support and training will be given, and we can reimburse reasonable out of pocket expenses. Initially you’ll carry out the role from our Centre on Cholmeley Road but once trained, you can carry out this role from home if you’d prefer.
