Are you interested in supporting LGBT people? Would you like to develop your CV and have the opportunity to supervise and mentor volunteers in a structured role. Are you interested in developing your own service and have lots of ideas? Then we need you.
The Rainbow Project would like to recruit ten Volunteer Outreach Officers to support our Outreach programme. The Volunteer Outreach programme is an evening and weekend opportunity providing information, advice and support directly to vulnerable Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender service users on the gay scene.
The responsibilities of the Volunteer Outreach Officers will be to provide safer sex packs to Gay and Bisexual Men, engage LGBT people in conversation around drugs and alcohol, emotional health and wellbeing and to raise awareness of support services for LGBT people such as the Rainbow Project advocacy programme for victims of homophobia or transphobia.
This opportunity is excellent for social butterflies, keen to engage with LGBT people in a club environment on a range of issues while also enjoying the atmosphere, the craic and the music. Start off the night getting dressed up in TRP uniforms, listen to music and get psyched and ready to go out to Kremlin, El Divino, Fox’s Den, Bubu, Candy Crush, Men of the North, Cherry, Lollipop, Maverick and so on. You will be given extensive training and will undergo an interview process. All volunteers will receive 6 monthly one to ones and a plethora of opportunities to upskill on ASIST, Safe Talk, ACET and Drugs and Alcohol courses. So why not develop your CV with something a bit different once or twice a month on a Monday/Friday night!
Hours will be 10 hours per month and the post is flexible.
