Pancreatic Cancer UK Information Volunteer Opportunity

Information Volunteers (North West)

Pancreatic Cancer UK are offering an exciting part-time volunteering opportunity (1-2 days per month) to support the regional team in the North West (Cheshire, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Merseyside). The Information Volunteers will help the team to reach people throughout the North West who are affected by a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, providing them with access to information and support.

You will have excellent communication skills, a good knowledge of Pancreatic Cancer UK services, an empathy for people affected by pancreatic cancer, and an understanding of the importance of confidentiality and personal boundaries.

In return, you will gain experience in a busy, friendly team, meet new people, receive support and induction, reimbursement for volunteer expenses, as well as the satisfaction of making a valuable contribution to the work of Pancreatic Cancer UK.

How to apply

Please read the full Role Description and send an email outlining your relevant experience and why you’re interested in this volunteer role, together with your CV, to getinvolved@pancreaticcancer.org.uk. They will then contact you to arrange an informal telephone call to discuss the role, and any further details they may need.

If interested, please email by: Friday 29th September at 9am

Training

If we think you’ve got the appropriate skills and experience for the role, you will be invited to attend a 1 day training session. This will likely be on Friday 6th October at a venue in Manchester. Reasonable travel expenses to and from the training event can be paid in line with their Volunteer Expenses Policy, and lunch and refreshments will be provided. Depending on the number of applications they have for this role, and their suitability, they may not be able to invite all interested applicants but will let you know of other opportunities or future training dates as they become available.
