Job Description

Why not become a volunteer?

The Trust has a positive approach to volunteering. It can provide people with a gateway to employment, as some people who have been out of work a long time find volunteering a really helpful way to build confidence.

Some people even benefit from learning skills which can help them in returning to work. Evidence for future employers of regular volunteering experience for six months or more can be helpful to those returning to work after a long gap.

There are many rewards, from meeting new people through to being able to enjoy the experience of giving. Many visitors/patients to the hospital are vulnerable and in need of assistance in many different ways. Being able to show consideration, empathy and of kindness for others, may bring balance, perspective and fulfilment to your own life.

You will gain valuable knowledge and experience of working in a healthcare setting.

Among a host of activities, you could:

  • Help on the wards
  • Meet and greet patients and visitors and show them where they need to go
  • Help out behind the scenes with admin tasks

We are currently recruiting for Ward Volunteers and Admin Support Volunteers, please read though the role requirements for more information on these.  Our only requirements from our volunteers are that they live in the borough of Croydon, they can commit to a minimum of 4.5 hours per week for a minimum period of 6 months, and they are over 18 years of age.  If you meet this criteria then why not join us
