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 the training dates listed below. Here is the next window:

Summer recruitment window: 5-25 June 2017

Clinic support workers must be able to commit to two sessions a month, from August 2017 until January 2018 (or for longer if they wish). The clinic is on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 11:45am to 7pm.

Applications can be made via this link. There are two mandatory training sessions:

  • Access to healthcare and group interview: Tuesday 4th July, 7pm – 8.30pm  
  • Skills training: Thursday 13th July, 10am–5pm

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. You can apply here.

Please note that this rolling application process may be put on hold at times when we are at full capacity with volunteers.

GPs and Nurses

We only recruit fully-qualified GPs due to how we are registered with the CQC and issues related to clinical supervision. We only recruit nurses with at least two years’ post-qualification experience.

We have all the volunteer GPs and nurses we need at the moment so we are not currently recruiting.

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.

Our placements are now full until October 2017. For a placement for the October–December 2017 period, please only apply by 27 August 2017. You can request an application form by email.

For a placement for the January–March 2018 period, please only apply during October–December 2017. You can request an application form by email.

Unfortunately, we aren’t able to respond to speculative requests or provide information about the progress of individual applications. If your application has been successful we will be able to give you 4 weeks’ notice.
