We are looking for enthusiastic, kind and patient volunteers that enjoy having a chat with people of all different backgrounds. You will listen and engage and try to work out if all is well or if the client might need some further assistance from us. Sometimes they will and you can flag it up to AUKI staff. Other times you just end up with a nice chat - hopefully brightening both yours and the client's day! There are some IT skills involved in logging the calls but we will give you adequate training and the support you need. The main bit is to chat with the clients and listen well. This role can be done from home or from our offices at Manor Gardens. Please get in touch and we can explain more about the role! Hope to hear from you soon.
