Detailed description
Work-Wise is a Somerset based charity which provides a free, supportive, non-judgmental and confidential service to local job seekers. Since opening in Taunton in April 2014, Work-Wise has worked with around 100 individuals a year, and the charity is committed to helping people back into work. Work-Wise is opening its doors to support job seekers in Bridgwater from April 2020, and will be based at the Westfield URC Street Café. We are looking for Job Seeker Mentors who are good listeners and are willing to support people with advice on CV writing and job applications using computers and the internet. The satisfaction that you are making a real difference to people's lives, especially when they get a job! Being part of a great friendly and supportive volunteering team with very varied backgrounds! Learning mentoring skills. Many of our former volunteers have been job seekers themselves and have appreciated the help and support gained from working with Work-Wise with finding employment themselves. Initially just Thursday mornings, we may increase to a Thursday afternoon session as well within 12 months. Rota basis, so happy to work around you: we try and do rotas 4-6 weeks in advance. We would invite you to do initial training at Work-Wise's original home, the Taunton URC on a Wednesday for one or two sessions.
