Nanaimo non-profits ask for volunteer receptionists

Nanaimo Disability Resource Centre and Volunteer Nanaimo have opportunities available

Nanaimo Disability Resource Centre and Volunteer Nanaimo are asking for some help with answering phones and pointing clients in the right direction.

According to a press release from Volunteer Nanaimo, the Nanaimo Disability Resource Centre requires a volunteer to greet walk-in clients, answer phones, provide information and referrals and process parking permit applications.

The position is for four hours a week during the afternoon, and the resource centre is asking for a commitment of at least six months due to the training required.

The disability resource centre is asking for a volunteer who speaks English fluently, who has basic computer knowledge and who can multi-task.

The release notes that precautions are in place to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus and ensure the safety of volunteers, staff members and the public.

For more information, call Allison at 250-758-5547 or e-mail allison@ndrc.info.

Volunteer Nanaimo is also looking for volunteer receptionists, both those willing to work a regular shift and those who can be available to fill in for others who are sick or on holiday.

Volunteers are sought to work in the mornings on Mondays or in the afternoons on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Volunteers should have experience with computers including a basic understanding of Word, Excel and Gmail, and bring good cheer, patience and a sense of humour.

For more information, call 250-758-7121 or e-mail vn3148@gmail.com.
