Volunteer with us
Each year Talking Money works with thousands of people with money problems. Whether it’s someone in extreme financial crisis or someone in need of tips to make their money stretch further, we can only provide these much-needed services with the help of our incredible volunteers.
Volunteering is a great opportunity to learn new skills, meet new people and gain valuable experience for the workplace. Talking Money is always looking for people with various backgrounds, talents and skill levels to volunteer with us. We have a range of opportunities available for people to get involved. The following is a list of typical volunteer roles available at Talking Money:
Supporting our specialist advisers and working directly with clients, our advice volunteers contribute greatly to our organisational aims. We are often looking for advice volunteers to help in our debt, energy or benefits advice services – click on the relevant icon in ‘Our services’ to find out more about each service.
Administrative support volunteers:
The administration team supports all functions of the organisation. We often have a range of opportunities working across different teams in the organisation.
Self Help Service volunteers:
We provide telephone, IT and information services for people to take steps to help themselves resolve their money difficulties or improve their financial situation. Volunteers are fundamental to maintaining this service.
Any current volunteering opportunities will be listed on this page. We offer all our volunteers full training and a welcoming, friendly office environment.
In return for your time and effort we will: cover expenses incurred, provide an opportunity to develop your skills and gain experience in the charity sector, and, crucially, provide all the tea or coffee you can drink!
Whilst we are happy to help you fit your volunteering with us around your other commitments, such as your caring responsibilities, we do expect you to agree a regular time for volunteering; and to do so for at least six months.
If you are interested in volunteering with us, please get in touch with our Volunteer and Training Coordinator, Vincent Finney, on 0117 954 3990 or email Vincent.firstname.lastname@example.org
