Volunteers - parents and expectant parents just like you - run our branch.
Are you looking for something to stimulate the mind while baby is napping, or to add to your CV before you return to work? If you have a few hours a week to spare and you'd like to give something back to the NCT, we'd love to hear from you. You don’t need to take on huge tasks, just commit whatever time you can or your previous experience and skills. It is a great way to learn new skills, make new friends, and represent the NCT.
Committee and volunteer posts require different types of people with different skills and there really is something for everyone, no matter how much or little time you think you may have to offer. Support is always given by the Chair and by the committee as a whole.
Online support is also offered to all volunteers by way of online head office material available to all members and online groups where you can exchange handy hints and tips with fellow volunteers in the same role. Not only do you get a sense of pride and achievement for your efforts, you are likely to make new friends and have some useful experience to add to your CV too.
Are you a new parent looking to keep the brain engaged and to meet like-minded local parents while taking care of little ones? Are you organised and do you have access to a computer? Then you could be our Branch's next Secretary.
The Branch Secretary is the administrator for the branch team, working closing with the Branch Co-ordinator. He/she ensures that queries to the branch are directed to the relevant people within the branch, assists the Co-ordinator in knowing what branches are expected to do, plans and organises meetings and helps recruit/ retain volunteers. The Branch Secretary will also support our Social Media Co-ordinator. If you are interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
