Volunteer Recruitment Event at Hertford Tourist Office

Dean Crofts, our Training Manager and Anne Woods, our Training Co-ordinator held an event at Hertford Tourist Office to let people know more about the benefits of volunteering with us. 

They enjoyed meeting people who dropped in to find out more about our work. 

Citizens Advice volunteers come from all walks of life and choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. Our volunteers include students, people getting back into work after career breaks, people with part-time jobs, carers, and people who’ve retired.

Every volunteer gets something different from their volunteering experience, including the opportunity to:

  • make a positive difference to people's' lives
  • improve self esteem, confidence and wellbeing
  • gain invaluable work experience
  • receive high quality training and develop new skills
  • use existing skills and knowledge to benefit the local community
  • meet new people from a range of backgrounds
  • feel valued and part of a team
  • change the way things work for the better

Volunteering with Citizens Advice provides training, skills and experience that is valued by many employers. Many volunteers who leave local Citizens Advice go on to paid employment, including with the Citizens Advice service, as well as other organisations.

If you’re looking to get back into work, or considering a career with Citizens Advice, volunteering can be a great place to start.  If you’re interested email Dean and Anne, at training@citizensadviceeastherts.org.uk or call  01920 454892 for an informal chat.
