Citizens Advice has various new volunteering opportunities

Citizens Advice Peterborough is recruiting on a rolling basis for volunteers as Information Assistants, Advice Workers, Research & Campaigning Workers and Fundraisers.

These are new exciting roles which reflect the current transformations in the provision of information and advice which are being implemented to ensure that Citizens Advice gives the best possible service to residents and reflects the needs of our clients. 

Volunteers are at our heart and we have approximately 40 volunteers but are looking to expand this volunteer base to meet the needs of the community.  Volunteers range in age from early 20’s to over 70.  All volunteers reflect the local community as volunteers cover a range of ethnic origins, gender, and religions.

Citizens Advice Peterborough is a local charity, ‘your local charity’ - dependent on our highly-skilled workforce of trained volunteers and paid staff.  

Our clients and volunteers come from the many different communities in the city and all lifestyles and we are committed to providing a free, confidential and independent advice service, with volunteering opportunities for the whole community.  

At Citizens Advice Peterborough volunteers outweigh our paid employees by a ratio of 2:1. Keith Jones, CEO of Citizens Advice Peterborough said, ‘

‘Volunteers make an outstanding contribution to Citizens Advice in so many ways; behind the scenes providing back office support, on our board providing leadership and governance, or directly helping people affected by issues in their lives or in their community.  We simply would not be able to do what we do without them.’

Our volunteers have the opportunity to:

  • Make a difference and give something back to their community
  • Develop new skills & put existing skills to good use
  • Work in a team
  • Receive highly respected training
  • Get invaluable work experience
  • Get involved with their local community

If you are interested in the volunteer vacancies we currently have please call 01733 887924, or email: volunteering@peterboroughcab.org.uk, for more information and an application pack.    

Application forms can also be downloaded via our website www.adviceintegration.co.uk or you can call into the Citizens Advice Peterborough, 16-17 St Mark’s Street, Peterborough, PE1 2TU.
