    Volunteer Assistant Psychologist / Job Coach

    Momentum Skills

    This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

    Momentum is a registered charity providing training and support programmes throughout the UK and Ireland for people with disabilities. We are looking for volunteers with maturity (minimum age 18), enthusiasm and commitment who can relate well to people on a one to one basis. As clients respond well to continuity of support we wish to recruit people who have a minimum of 6 months to offer. This is also important due to the ongoing training offered which enables volunteers to work most effectively with clients. We understand that most people only have several hours a week to spend on voluntary work. Therefore the minimum time commitment per week is 6 hours. If you are in a position to offer a greater time commitment then this is welcomed. Previous work with people with a disability is not essential for this type of voluntary work. What is important is that you have good interpersonal skills, have an understanding of other people’s needs and feelings and are able to use your initiative. We are looking for individuals who are reliable and responsible and who demonstrate a positive attitude towards disability. There are two main areas in which volunteers at Momentum are involved: Centre Based Activities Volunteers can provide additional support in tutor led sessions to clients with individual needs or carry out supervised one to one sessions to address clients’ specific areas of need. Community Based Activities Volunteers can also assist by marketing the service around the community; this could be at organised events or floor walking with relevant services.
