The Benefit of Volunteering

VolunteeringWe are recruiting Trainee Advisers for our next training programme which begins on 8th March 2019. Initially, trainees meet up once a week for a half day training session where we cover interactions with clients including answering a telephone enquiry and interviewing skills. A further half day is spent in one of our two offices - Stroud and Cirencester observing other advisers working with clients. 

After the initial ten week's training, trainees will start to work on the telephone for half a day per week whilst spending the other half day attending training sessions run by our specialist advisers covering key topics such as housing and homelessness, debt, benefits and employment.  This second part of the training programme takes about ten weeks to complete, trainees then continue learning and development by advising for 8-10 hours per week.
