We Need You!
We depend upon the work of volunteers. If you’re looking for a volunteering opportunity with a difference – if you want to really add value to your community and get a sense of reward, to transform people’s lives in a very hands-on way – then get involved with us at Gro-Organic.
We don’t just need green-fingered volunteers, but also people with different levels of experience for office staff, data, volunteer support, or with our urban street project. If you’re someone who’s retired after a hard career, and love to keep busy a couple of days a week, then we need help with planning, business and marketing.
Even at board level with our steering group, we seek people from all walks of life to represent areas that we work in, to challenge our thinking and provide us with guidance. No matter what your abilities, we want to someone to talk represent the difficulties faced in the real world, so that we can be as inclusive as possible.
Volunteering is also a great way to enhance your networks and make new friends, increase your self-esteem and quality of life. It’s a chance to get out into your local community and support others.
If you currently lack the experience for employment, or are looking for valuable work experience and transferrable work skills to give your CV a boost, then we offer a variety of work experience opportunities.
We maintain long-standing partnerships with official organisations including the Department for Work and Pensions, Jobcentre Plus, as well as APM and other work agencies, in order to get people ready again for the world of work.
We’ve even got plenty of mums who are looking for a confidence boost to bridge the gap between looking after the kids and getting back to work again. We’ve helped them regain the skills that they already had, but just needed to tap into – to find themselves once again.
