We are Seeking a New Volunteer Receptionist

If you have good computer skills and are adaptable, reliable and friendly then we need you!

SAVS is a registered charity and relies on its team of volunteer receptionists to be the first point of contact for anyone calling into the office, either on the phone or in person. Full training is given but good computer skills are important (confidence with database entry would be wonderful but we can teach you!) We’re currently looking for 1 receptionist for Monday, looking for someone with these skills as well as good communication skills. This role would suit someone newly retired, unemployed or a uni student prepared to volunteer for 4 hours once a week (some flexibility would be appreciated).

We really value our volunteers, reimburse travel expenses and many go on to find paid employment elsewhere as a result of increased confidence, learning new skills, adding to their CV and gaining a good reference.

If you would like to find out more about this volunteer role, please call us and we will be happy to have a chat with you.

Would you like to join the SAVS Team? Contact us today and find out how you could join them!

SAVS is based in central Southend, just off Southend High Street.  If you are interested please contact Judy or Sarah on 01702 356026 for more information
