Volunteer Administrators sought by B’ham Citizens Advice Bureau
The Citizens Advice Bureau is not an easy organisation to volunteer for. The government refers everyone there when the government can’t personally help them. That basically means, the Citizens Advice Bureau is the end of the line for all the desperate people neglected by the government’s system. Nice way to brush off the responsibility to an “independent” charity (quango). Clever scapegoating.
Still, the CAB’s hardworking volunteers inevitably (often, but not always) try their best to help all these desperate people with their problems – and they’re not always critical issues, but they usually are.
Do you have what it takes to help the people who the “government” refuses to take responsibility for (so has referred to the CAB)? Even though the CAB doesn’t have the authority to get nearly so much done as the government has, the CAB is the one left to do the work to help many British people with their critical personal administrative / advice / way-finder issues in life.
Birmingham’s CAB on Corporation Street (main occupier of Gazette Buildings) is the front-line where drop-in advice is given to citizens, meanwhile, this Administrator job is likely to be based at Bull Street, but there will be some client liaison work involved.
Birmingham CAB also seeks Volunteer Advisers, Volunteer IT Support and Board Members, plus more specialist roles, but the most urgently advertised volunteering opportunity by Birmingham CAB for Volunteer Administrators.
