If you’re looking for a volunteer role where you can work from home – a national charity has the answer.

The charity provides specially adapted audio equipment for free to visually impaired people across the UK and they need someone to get in touch with the people it supports in Staffordshire.

The role is home-based and involves making follow up phone calls to the people who have BWBF’s radios to make sure they are getting on with them and if they have any questions.

It will include regular online and phone support with the area manager and would be ideal for someone who wants to make a difference in their local community by doing some work from home.

It would suit someone who a good communicator and experienced in using Word, Excel and the internet and they will need to have access to a computer, broadband and a printer.

All out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.

The role is flexible as volunteers can commit as much time as they like, but ideally at least two to four hours a week.
BWBF’s Regional Development Manager for Central England, Sophie Wheldon, said: “This is a great opportunity for someone who would like to gain valuable experience within a national charity.

“You’ll be providing support to visually impaired people within your community and also improving your employment prospects by enhancing your CV.
