What skills do I need?

This very important project provides a real lifeline to local people needing support services, so we need volunteers who are aware of this and will be dedicated in this role. You will need to possess good attention to detail, as you will be handling important and confidential data to be accurately reported and recorded at all times. A background in customer service or advice would be beneficial, but isn’t essential. You will be non-judgmental, patient and approachable, good at listening and have an empathetic nature. You will also have a good grasp of client confidentiality and respect for the privacy and dignity of those using Positive Steps Thamesmead. You will be representing Peabody and our partners at all times and so you will also need to take this into consideration when carrying out the role.
