Volunteer Receptionist

At the end of this month the wonderful Val Pocock will be finishing her job as our morning receptionist and starting a well earned retirement (although knowing Val I'm sure she won't be able to keep away for very long!). Val has done an amazing job for many years now welcoming the growing number of visitors into the Kerith Centre, whether it is speaking to people and answering queries on the phone, welcoming clients for our community work like Foodbank, or greeting visitors to the office team. First impressions are so important, which is why we put so much effort into having an inviting reception area, and making sure everyone gets a greeting from our team that says “We're really pleased you're here”.

We’re currently recruiting for someone to be part of that welcome by joining our Reception team as a part-time contracted volunteer. The role covers 3 morning sessions each week (Tues, Thurs, Fri) from 9am-1pm and starts on Tuesday 3rd April. If you, or someone you know, would be interested in finding out more, there are information packs available in Reception, and a job description here. If you have any questions, or want to speak with us about it, please get in touch with sue.ranger@kerith.co.uk or ali.hudell@kerith.co.uk. But hurry – we want to hear from you by 15th March if so!

If we can't find someone willing and able to do the role on a volunteer basis then we will look to recruit somebody on a paid basis. However, we felt as part of our goal to raise the level of volunteering across the church to see if there is a wonderful person willing to do it as a volunteer!

Simon.
