Volunteers are an important and integral part of our charity and many services could not be delivered, locally or nationally, without a committed and active volunteer base. We provide opportunities for many different types of volunteering experience from supporting a local club, to working with children at one of our national events, to sitting on our Board of Trustees.
Web Chat Helpline Volunteer (Home-Based)
We are seeking volunteers to support parents and carers via our online web chat service. This involves taking enquiries from parents and carers about high learning potential children and providing signposting, information and advice. We ask volunteers to commit to a slot of up to three hours (morning, afternoon or evening) on a weekly basis during term time.
Full training will be provided for the role. Training will consist of several online modules and a face-to-face training session (the next one is in October 2020).
For more information see the Role Description.
To apply for the role please complete this application form (alternatively a CV would be acceptable) and send with a covering letter stating why you would like to volunteer in this role for Potential Plus UK to email@example.com .
If you would like to discuss the role, please contact Rebecca Howell on 01908 646433 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
Board of Trustees
As a charity we have a Board of Trustees that oversees the work of the organisation. They meet three times a year, usually at Central Office in Milton Keynes, as well as attending a strategy away day and the the Annual General Meeting in October, which is usually held as part of the BIG Family Weekend.
Our BIG national events would simply not be possible without the support of volunteers registering families, helping in the children’s activities, serving refreshments, assisting with parking and a multitude of other tasks. Check our Events Diary for the next BIG events.
Central Office Administration
Due to the restrictions on our work during the Covid-19 global pandemic we are unfortunately unable to work with interns during summer 2020. We hope to be able to offer internship opportunities again in the near future.
Potential Plus UK supports thousands of more able children and young people each year and our internship Programme is another way of providing exciting opportunities for our young graduates or gap year students.
We provide a brilliant opportunity for you to work for a charity, gain new skills, meet new people and be able to put the valuable experience and training you gain on your CV to make you stand out from the other candidates when you apply for a job in the future.
It is also a chance to put something back into society in an area of charity work which is very rewarding, working with children and their families. Click here to find out more.
