The Glen is seeking volunteers for our daily work program which runs 4 days a week from 10am to 12pm. Volunteers are required to be available 9:30am to 12:30pm on Monday to Wednesday (Volunteers can choose which day they are available but are expected to commit to that day).
The work program creates an opportunity for clients who don’t have much experience to develop a positive attitude towards work and learn how to communicate in a team environment. The Glen hopes the boys can carry that attitude and work ethic with them when it’s time to step back into society. We are seeking volunteers to support the work program who have the following skills: Cleaning
What to expect:
The Glen is a very unique work environment. We work with vulnerable Australians who have fallen through the cracks of society. Some of our clients are institutionalised, come from broken families and suffer from mental health issues. You can expect to hear inappropriate language from time to time. There will be difficult days so you will require patience, compassion, understanding and will need to tailor teaching methods according to the client.
The Glen is a planned and process-driven organisation, and you will be expected to use technology such as Microsoft Outlook email and calendars, Google to-do lists and Whatsapp to communicate with the team. There are times when things don’t go to plan, so expect the unexpected and be prepared to be flexible and dynamic.
Honesty is one of our values, so you can also expect honest feedback from other staff members when things can be done better. The Glen is an ambitious organisation, accredited under QIP and strives to continuously improve.
***To be referred to this role a face-to-face interview with Volunteering Central Coast is required. You will be contacted soon to arrange a mutually convenient time and place. ***
