Victim Support wanting Volunteer Support Workers wanted

Victim Support is now recruiting men & women, from all walks of life, to train as volunteer Support Workers in the Nelson Tasman region.

Victim Support provides 24hr emotional support, personal advocacy and information to all people affected by crime and trauma throughout New Zealand.  There are various areas for which we need workers so the training will reflect the role you choose.

Helping fellow New Zealanders cope with the immediate crisis or trauma, and the events that follow, are at the heart of Victim Support’s community role and is the essence of the Victim Support Workers’ job – being there when they are needed most.

To be part of our team, you will have:

  • Empathy
  • Patience
  • Commitment
  • Resourcefulness
  • A few hours to spare each week

In return, we offer:

  • Extensive training
  • A supportive and friendly environment
  • The chance to be part of a well-respected organisation

Our next intake is in March 2016. We are interviewing in February 2016. If you’re interested now is the time. J
