Volunteer - Collection Tin Coordinator
Do you like getting out and about? Are you responsible and well organised? Are you keen to volunteer for a local charity? Then this role could be for you.
Guild Care is aa charity that has been making a difference to the lives of the people of Worthing and its surrounding areas since it was first established in 1933 by a small team of volunteers. Today we run three care homes and 30 community services helping over 3,000 people of all ages each year with professional staff and an army of amazing volunteers. We deliver innovative and life-changing care services which help older people, children and adults with a disability, those living with dementia and their carers, to share and enjoy a richer family and community life.
Like many charities, our fundraising has been hit hard by the COVID-19 restrictions and we're working hard to make up lost income.
Before the lockdown, we pushed our collection tins out to more shops, cafes, pubs and other public facing businesses in the local area. We are now looking for volunteers who can take on the role of coordinating our tins once these places open up again.
This is a flexible role (days and times to suit you). It would suit both drivers or non drivers – if you have access to a car (mileage expenses will be covered) and you’re willing to, you can cover a larger area of our network or if you don’t, you can coordinate the collection tins in your local community.
Your role will be to:
- Phone the businesses on a 3-month rolling basis to ask how they are getting on.
- Collect tins no longer wanted and deliver them back to Guild Care's fundraising office.
- Swap empty tins for full ones as and when required.
- Communicate / report any errors or issues to the Fundraising Officer.
- Be mindful of health and safety good practice and work accordingly.
- Be polite, courteous, professional and friendly to the rest of the team and customers.
We are recruiting for this role despite the COVID-19 emergency because it's important for our future. We would really like to hear from you if you're interested. We could talk by phone or video link initially so you can find out more about the role and if it might be right for you.
