Would you like to do something useful and worthwhile?
Citizens Advice Bedford volunteers come from a range of backgrounds and volunteer with us for different reasons. Our volunteer roles are varied, challenging and rewarding and our volunteers really enjoy being able to make a valuable contribution and a positive impact on people’s lives.
As a Citizen Advice Bedford volunteer you don’t need any particular qualifications or experience as we have our own comprehensive accredited training programme that will give you all the skills you need to deliver a high quality service to our clients.
Citizens Advice Bedford is the only charity in Bedford Borough to hold an Advice Quality Standard (AQS) certificate meaning the advice we give to clients is of a high standard.
Our nationally recognised and accredited training programme changes the lives of those who volunteer for us.
In 2018 21% of our volunteers left us with the ability to go into paid work or education and training due to the confidence and skills gained through volunteering at CAB.
We offer three main volunteering roles: Adviser, Client Support Officer and Admin Assistant.
All volunteers must be IT literate and have a good working knowledge of Microsoft Word as well as able to independently use Google to search and extract information.
We welcome people from all age groups and walks of life, although for client facing roles, volunteers must be aged 18 or above. All applications are considered and candidates who demonstrate suitability will be contacted and invited in for interviews.
Want to become a part of us too?
If you can commit to a minimum of 8 hours per week (either a full day or split over 2 days) for a minimum period of 12 months and be prepared to complete our training programme, we want to hear from you!
