Citizens Advice Flintshire have a few places left on their latest volunteering training programme, which starts again at the end of this month.
The six-week programme takes place one day a week and is scheduled to start on the 27th of February and will prepare volunteers to welcome clients and offer them appropriate guidance as Volunteer Assessors.
As part of the volunteer training programme you will work towards achieving your Gateway Certificate of Advice, a recognised qualification.
So, what’s it like being a volunteer?
Eugene came to this country a couple of years back and is now living in Flintshire with his family.
“Volunteering with Citizens Advice means I belong to a huge network of advisers and support staff; an organisation that’s instantly recognised and respected all over the country and, probably the world. I wanted to be a part of that, and now I am.”
But what else motivated him to join as a volunteer?
“For me, it’s about sharing the experience and knowledge I’ve built up, and putting it to good use. Also, Employers will be able to see, not only my qualifications but how they’re used in a real working environment.”
Would he recommend volunteering with Citizens Advice Flintshire?
“Yes, I definitely would. It’s a wonderful place to work. Everyone I’ve met is friendly and supportive, and the more people I meet, the better it gets.
