Volunteer Vacancies and Jobs

We have a number of vacancies and jobs open for volunteers here at the Centre. We are currently looking for drivers, a group volunteer and some senior roles on our Board. Take a look at the latest jobs below:

Chair and Vice Chair for our Board of Trustees

Forth Valley Sensory Centre are recruiting a new Chair and Vice Chair for our Board of Trustees. If you are interested in applying for either of these voluntary roles please provide a brief CV and statement of no more than 300 words explaining why you are interested in the role and how your experience matches the role specification for Vice Chair or the role specification for the Chair to Jacquie Winning. Closing date for applications 28 September 2018. Interviews will take place during the second week in October. If you require any additional information please speak to Jacquie on 01324 590888

Jobs for Drivers

We are currently looking for drivers, either, using their own vehicle to help Centre Users with mobility issues get into our Centre or to our various groups and outings or driving our Minibus. Expenses are paid to own car users (you must have permission from your insurance company first, usually there is no charge for this but it keeps you legal!) and full training is given to minibus drivers. You need Category D1 on your driving license and we provide MIDAS training to ensure you can safely secure wheelchairs into our bus.

The driving role suits people who like a good chat, seeing the local area and want to make a positive difference to the life of someone with limited access to the outside world. A very rewarding role!

ConneXions Group Assistant

ConneXions is a social club for young adults with learning disabilities and/or sensory impairments. Meeting once a month, usually on the last Thursday, at Forth Valley Sensory Centre from 7pm to 9pm. There are regular chill out nights featuring cafe, crafts, IT and music, plus occasional bowling and cinema outings, parties and a summer bbq. This is a great role for many people with daytime commitments as it is is one of the few evening groups that currently exist.

Originally founded as a group for former Carrongrange pupils, we are looking for new help and ideas to grow the group with a new set of school leavers in Autumn. If you think you can help, please get in touch. This group supports a fantastic bunch of people who really appreciate coming together in a social environment.

Events Support Job

Are you a young person looking to gain experience in events and promotions or an older person looking to turn your hand to a rewarding venture? We need a reliable, organised person who is great at interacting with people to help us organise our many different events. This ight include; designing posters, manning a stand at community events, helping us secure raffle prizes for events or supporting our online presence. Can you spare a few hours each month?

Outside of this, we are always keen to hear from potential volunteers and offer good training and experience to the right people. If you would be interested in volunteering at the Centre, then please see our volunteering page here.
