JOBS & VOLUNTEERING

The BUILD Charity employs four members of mainly part time staff and is supported by around 80 volunteers involved in a variety of roles ranging from supporting adults with disabilities in a weekly social club, sports or learning setting through to back office functions such as marketing and promotions, fundraising, administration or governance.

Employment opportunities are initially advertised internally to staff and volunteers, and through our website and Facebook page, before using a range of digital media. We welcome direct approaches and enquiries to our Chief Executive, with CVs and details of experience which are often held pending suitable employed roles becoming available. These can be sent to james.kearns@buildcharity.co.uk

Our volunteering vacancies change regularly and we advertise these on our Facebook and Twitter feeds, however our volunteering roles normally fall into three categories:

Front line volunteering – supporting one of our social, leisure and learning services, such as the Wednesday Club, Community Activities programme, or Learning and Skills Workshops where volunteers will work within a small, or sometimes large team, led by a BUILD member of staff. This role may involve supporting and encouraging people with disabilities to take part in activities, helping them understand instructions, or get the most out of the activity. Sometimes it is just helping them enjoy a great day out, knowing that someone is there to help them if they need it.

Background Volunteering – supporting BUILD’s back-office functions in things like marketing, public relations, and fundraising, as well as working in a clerical role in our Norwich offices, producing a newsletter, managing our archives, or helping us link with new business opportunities. These opportunities also include being members of our Board of Trustees, Community Engagement Team or Advisory Groups that play a key role in our service development.

Volunteering for people with disabilities – BUILD has always supported volunteering for people with disabilities. Some of our Trustees are people with disabilities, and most of the people designing and delivering our internal and external training programmes are volunteers with disabilities who are, of course, the real experts.
