Over 20,000 people volunteer for the Citizen’s Advice service nationally and our volunteers are vital to delivering the service we offer locally at Citizen’s Advice Richmond.
As a result of the current crisis we are seeing a substantial increase in the number of people needing advice and assistance. Our dedicated volunteers are advising even more people than usual, who are experiencing far more extensive issues.
We need to ensure that we meet this increased demand and are seeking volunteers who share in our commitment to supporting the local community.
We are keen to recruit volunteers of a range of ages, from different backgrounds with varied life experiences that reflect the diverse community we support. We offer training and support for all roles to meet any level of experience.
We are currently recruiting volunteers for various roles based either at one of our offices in the London Borough of Richmond or working remotely from home.
Our volunteer roles are varied, challenging, rewarding and our volunteers really enjoy being able to make a valuable contribution and a positive impact on people’s lives.
