A VOLUNTEER group in East Cambridgeshire is appealing for local organisations to come forward with work opportunities for their growing band of volunteers.
Voluntary and Community Action East Cambridgeshire (VCAEC) has been inundated with willing volunteers since the recession took hold and the organisation is desperate to make use of their skills with a range of new placements.
VCAEC Manager Avril Hayter-Smith, said: "We envisage a change happening in a few months as the recession really bites. Many highly skilled professionals will find themselves taking early retirement or redundancy and have their skills to offer to the voluntary sector.
"We are looking to develop volunteering opportunities for these potential volunteers and a bonus for organisations is that often these professionals will not be seeking paid employment and will stay with the organisation, offering experience and skills for the long term."
You may also want to watch:
"These skills may assist groups with Trustee support; writing funding applications; business planning; accountancy; project development and much more."
If you are able to help VCAEC or are interested in how volunteers could help with your business could help your organisation contact Avril at VCAEC on 01353 666166 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
