If you want to get involved, we do have a few exciting roles within the Haringey Team!
Events Coordinator – would potentially suit two friends interested in a role-share!
Haringey NCT are looking for an enthusiastic and hands-on volunteer to take on the role of events coordinator. The role is a varied and interesting one; you will be responsible for helping to organise our Nearly New Sales, Cheeky Monkeys Tea Party, Christmas Fair and Expectant Parent Pub Nights. Much of the role is email-based and requires liaising with other volunteers to organise the events, but a helping hand on the day is also very welcome! The sales and pub nights are every three months and the Cheeky Monkeys Tea Party and Christmas Fair are annual events.
The team are very friendly and supportive, so you’ll have plenty of people on hand to help out. Our events are very successful and attract a high number of Haringey parents and we’d really like to continue this trend and expand where we can (any new ideas for events are also very welcome!).
If you enjoy organising, meeting new people, making contacts and being part of a team then please do get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to hear from you!
Social Media Coordinator
This role involves managing our Haringey NCT social media feeds on Facebook and Twitter. We use social media to publicise our events and pass on information so this role would suit anyone who is familiar with this kind of online communication. It’s quite a low-maintenance role but does need someone who can keep the feeds updated regularly. If you think you would be able to help then please do drop us an email at email@example.com for more info or if you’re interested.
The PSA Link is an important and interesting role to help ensure that parents-to-be and new parents who book on to NCT courses are also linked with their branch at the earliest opportunity so they can access the branch support and social network and other services such as NCT Nearly New Sales and NCT meet ups.
The role involves organising branch volunteers to visit NCT classes to inform parents-to-be about all the things that are happening in Haringey, as well as doing some visits yourself. You would be a ‘friendly face’ for new and expectant parents and help to promote all of the things we offer as a branch for local parents. The role takes up no more than a couple of hours a month. If you would like to be involved, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
Crouch End Contact
A relatively light touch role and goes hand in hand with hosting a local group. Ideally this would be someone who is keen to get a local group up and running either once a week, twice a month or once a month. You will have access to the local contacts email inbox and will be responsible for managing these emails and signposting where appropriate. A great role for someone local to Crouch End who wants to get involved in the community.
Would you like to start up a weekly or monthly social that is local to you? We would love to hear from you and will support you in getting it up and running. Please contact Olivia at email@example.com.
· Stroud Green – are you local to Stroud Green? Would you be keen to host a meet up midweek with other parents and their babies?
• Wednesday’s NCT Active at Beans and Barley – we are looking for a couple of hosts to keep this meet-up going.
• Co-Host for Dads and babies meetup (1st Friday of every month) – Can you help co-host this event with our host, Amit?
Volunteering with the NCT usually takes no more than a couple of hours a week, is a great way to meet new people locally and keeps your cv fresh while on maternity leave. Membership for volunteers is also discounted to £26 per year (compared to the usual £48). Please contact Olivia at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help out.
Nearly New Sale Volunteers
Our Nearly New Sales have been going from strength to strength and we always need volunteers to join our dynamic team on the day. You could help staff the sale room or the cafe and perhaps bake a cake to be sold in the cafe.
Contact Delphine at email@example.com to offer your assistance at the next sale.
