About the opportunity
A passion for helping and empowering individuals and enhance the Havering Community? Did you answer yes?
Havering Volunteer Centre’s Volunteer Pathway Adviser role ticks all of those boxes.
Here at HVC we support 250 charities, community and voluntary groups in Havering and have over 2000 active volunteers registered with us, both of these increasing daily.
The organisations we support are all looking for volunteers to support their Havering based services and the volunteers that visit us are all looking for the perfect opportunity.
A Volunteer Pathway Adviser’s role is to perfectly match a volunteer to a volunteering role by listening to their likes, skills and interests during a one to one informal interview.
By placing volunteers with the right skills and experience into volunteering roles, they make an essential contribution to the vital work these organisations do supporting the Havering community.
