Would you like to be a part of a vibrant social enterprise, working with wonderful, friendly people and to feel like you make a difference?
We offer a range of volunteering opportunities at Jennyruth Workshops. These include enabling and supporting our workers in:
educational courses including accredited courses
painting wooden gifts and products in the paintshop
cutting out wooden items, assembling habitat boxes and cold formed metal items in the scroll saw/assembly room
work experience and voluntary work outside of Jennyruth Workshops
making machine sewn items such as bags and cushions
running stalls at crafts fairs, shows, canteen sales and exhibitions
We also have volunteers who help with fundraising events.
We truly value the important contribution our volunteers make at Jennyruth Workshops and we endeavour to ensure their time is as enjoyable and rewarding as possible. We need volunteers to assist in the many and varied day-to-day activities essential to the continued success of Jennyruth Workshops. No experience is required but you must enjoy working as part of a team, supporting others and have patience. A good sense of humour helps too!
Our principles are that everyone who works here, our colleagues who have learning disabilities, volunteers and paid members of staff, are equally valued. What one person cannot do, another is able to do and we all work alongside each other to design products, pack and sell our goods as well as take part in learning and training opportunities.
We look forward to meeting you.
