Back on Track are always looking for enthusiastic and skilled people to help support our services in all areas.
The new Back on Track Cafe is open for business. We need people in two new roles – Volunteer Shift Leaders and Cafe Volunteers. This is a fantastic opportunity to get new skills in customer service, catering and supervision, get experience that could help you find a job in catering, and be part of a fantastic new project. Download the role descriptions then fill out and return our application form.
Volunteer Activity leader
Activity leaders lead a small group of adults in a group activity (eg a craft session, a visit to a local museum, or a work experience session). You need to be confident at facilitating a group of service users. We are particularly looking for activity leaders with skills in cleaning, painting and decorating or cookery, though we are also open to finding out what skills you have!
