This can vary according to the time taken for references to be returned and other checks. As a guide, the process can take a few weeks.
We’re looking for motivated people who are willing to join the team and make a difference for patients. Our volunteer team members have a diverse range of skills and experience but share a common goal – improving our patients’ experience and assisting visitors and carers. We look for good communication skills, reliability and a positive attitude.
We ask that you commit to a minimum of three hours once a week for a minimum of six months. People on the Young Person’s Programme commit to two hours a week for a minimum of 15 weeks.
We offer a range of training opportunities to enable our volunteers to fulfil their roles with confidence and competence.
We are always looking for motivated people and encourage applications from all sections of our community.
Completing an application form is the start of the recruitment process. We look at the detail provided and do our best to match your requirements with a suitable opportunity.
The Trust will undertake employment checks on anyone working, paid or unpaid, in order to protect our patients.
We undertake occupational health checks to establish that you are fit to undertake the role you are volunteering for and to identify if any modifications are required to assist you to undertake the role.
We will ask for a character reference as well as a personal statement.
The majority of our contact will be through email, so please do keep checking your emails. Please ensure you have your own email address and not a shared one.
