Volunteer 'Journey Makers' are required to help commuters at Ipswich and Manningtree Rail Stations to safely return to using public transport.
Based on the idea of the'Olympic Games Makers' Volunteering Matters in partnership with the Department for Transport and Greater Anglia are providing volunteers to be the friendly 'meet and greet' at each station and to help passengers to remember to wear their face coverings and to observe social distancing - as well as helping passengers who may be anxious about travelling or may be unfamiliar with the changed layout of the stations.
We need you to be friendly, reasonably confident with people and willing to spend up to three hours 'on shift' at one of the stations. You can do anything from one to ten shifts per week and anything from two to six weeks with us - we are very flexible and would love to hear from you if you are interested.
Confidence in dealing with people, working in a team, commitment, reliability, health and safety and safeguarding
The nature of the role requires us to set the age limit
One hour online introduction to include role, responsibilities, health and safety and safeguarding and a one hour on site induction
Ipswich is the first station in the UK to have Journey Makers - you can help to make this a great success for our community
To develop and deliver high impact volunteer- led social action solutions in response to some of the most difficult challenges facing individuals and their communities today.
