Exciting Opportunity

Mayday Inspire Volunteer- Oxfordshire & Northamptonshire x 8

Mayday Trust is a leading charity specialising in working with individuals as they go through their challenging life transitions. We deliver bespoke evidence based interventions to ensure that people coming to Mayday reach their full potential.

Are you passionate about working with people through their challenging life transitions in a community setting? Mayday Trust requires an advantaged thinking individual who is prepared to be a team player as well as working individually with people to raise and achieve their aspirations and ensuring they maintain positive mental and emotional wellbeing.

About the opportunity
You will be working one to one with people in the community, Our volunteers find opportunities with local businesses and in the community to meet each individual's ambitions and passions. You will work with a person to help them achieve their life goals and aspirations.

One day you might be organising a beginner's DJ mixing session, the next, supporting an individual working with horses in the local riding school or giving computer coding a whirl.

You'll need to be creative and resourceful to generate the most impact out of a limited budget. The people we're working with are going through tough times so you'll need to have empathy and excellent communication skills.
About Mayday Trust
Vision - Mayday's vision is for a world where individuals, families and communities thrive. Mission - Mayday Trust invests in people's talents and abilities through life-changing opportunities that overcome barriers and achieve aspirations Mayday supports people through difficult life transitions whether they are coming out of prison, seeking to return to work after extended unemployment, moving out of homelessness, or young people leaving care. People who come to Mayday grow not only by receiving services, but also by using their abilities and talents to engage with their community, volunteer or be part of a team. At Mayday we have moved away from purely providing services to brokering opportunities and activities that spark and inspire the people who come to us.

What are they looking for?
We need someone to be there to support that first step back into the community; to be there as the people we work with explore opportunities and rediscover "their spark" and passion for life.
