Detailed description
The role of the collector is to respond to requests from members of the public to collect tools they have to donate and to store them for the TWAM van to collect. We will normally ask you to collect with a maximum 25 mile radius from your home (although you can request a smaller area) and requests are matched based on postcodes. There is considerable flexibility in this role timewise as collections can be made at any time which is agreed between you and the donor. Typical tasks may include Taking calls and emails from members of the public and arranging collection times driving to collect tools from people and bringing them back to your storage area Arranging collections from the TWAM vans We provide an induction to the role which may be either over the phone, electronically or in person and a volunteer handbook on starting. You will have a named contact within TWAM for any questions or problems and further training can be provided as required. You will also be given a TWAM Polo Shirt to wear and an ID Card if required. The charitable work of Tools with a Mission is to collect unwanted tools, refurbish them, sort them into trade kits and send them across the world for livelihood creation. We send around 20 containers filled with over 300 tonnes of tools every year. To do this we rely on a national volunteer workforce and welcome people of all ages and abilities and of any faith and no faith. We do this because we want to support local people supporting their own communities through sustainable livelihood creating projects. We believe there is dignity through work and the ability to provide for yourself and your family. We believe entire communities can be transformed through training and the provision of tool kits and equipment. As a Christian Charity, we believe that God's heart reaches out to the poor and that He calls us to follow His example. Our motivation is to work with faith and non-faith based organisations to be a refuge for the poor, a safe place to find support, hope and dignity through the provision of tools and equipment From the role, you will gain a warm satisfaction at the difference you are making to peoples lives.
