Get involved Volunteer with us Volunteer roles Volunteer roles Our work would simply not be possible without our amazing volunteers. You can help us change lives right now – and develop valuable skills and friendships along the way. Below are examples of both the medical and non-medical roles we recruit for and how you can apply. London Clinic Clinic Support Workers Clinic support workers are the main point of contact for the people we help. They carry out interviews to determine needs and provide advice. They also act as advocates and liaise with NHS service providers to link people to the care they need. This role does not require clinical experience but would suit someone with an interest in helping vulnerable groups. You can apply for this role during one of four annual recruitment windows. Please only apply if you are able to make the minimum commitment, and attend both the dates provided for compulsory training. We are now recruiting! Clinic support workers must be able to commit to two sessions a month, for 6 months (or for longer if they wish). The clinic is on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 11:45am to 7pm. Please note that these vacancies are often oversubscribed. We encourage applications from those with previous experience of working face-to-face with vulnerable people. Applications from people who have lived experience and or who speak any of the following languages are also encouraged: Bengali, Mandarin, Hindi, Pashto, Tamil, Tagalog, Malayalam, Arabic, Tigrinya, Kurdish, Albanian. Applications can be made via this link which will become live once the next recruitment opens. There are two mandatory training sessions: · Access to healthcare and group interview - 15th FEBRUARY (6:00- 8:30 pm) · Skills training - 22nd FEBRUARY (10:00am- 5:00 pm) If you are unable to attend these dates, please consider applying during our next window which is anticipated to open in late March 2018. Caseworkers Caseworkers take on the more in-depth and complex cases from our clinic or other outreach work. They are also the first point of contact for service-users who contact our office. They act as an advocate and liaise with NHS and other services to link people to the care they need. This office-based role requires a commitment of two days a week (10am-5pm) for at least three months. Please note that this rolling application process is put on hold at times when we are at full capacity with volunteers. Our last recruitment window was from 15 September until 1 October 2017 and we currently have all the caseworkers we need. You can apply here once the next window opens - please check back to see when the opportunity is next opened. GPs and Nurses We only recruit fully-qualified GPs, due to how we are registered with the CQC and issues related to clinical supervision, and we also only take on nurses with at least two years’ post-qualification experience. We are in the fortunate position of having all the Doctors and Nurses we need at present. Please check back later to see when the opportunity will next be opened and click on these links if you're a doctor or a nurse who'd like to apply. Student Placements Whether you're studying medicine, social work, international development, or something completely different, we offer volunteer placements for students. We do not offer clinical work, but rather an opportunity to advocate for our service-users' health and social needs. Placements are usually for a minimum of 25 days, often spread over 2-3 months. We welcome students from the UK and abroad. We have filled our placement opportunities for Winter and Spring 2018. The recruitment window for the next placement period (Summer 2018),is not yet open. If you are interested, please email us to request an application form and we will respond once the window has opened. We are aware that some applicants may require more advance confirmation of gaining a placement to help meet university deadlines. We will bear that in mind when it comes to the order of the shortlisting process, but cannot accept applications outside of the recruitment window. Unfortunately, we aren’t able to respond to speculative requests or provide information about the progress of individual applications, but we will let all applicants know the outcome with as much notice as possible.
