Volunteer Nelson needs someone to interview volunteers who have been nominated by their organisation. The interview can be recorded and used to write an article about the volunteer. The purpose of these articles is to recognise the volunteer and promote volunteering to the public. The ability to interview and have an excellent grasp is essential. You would be required 1.5 hours once a month.
