Current Volunteering Roles

Shelter Cymru Treasurer

Do you believe that everyone in Wales has the right to a good, secure and affordable home?

We are looking for someone with a professional accountancy qualification (or with appropriate financial skills and experience) to join our respected pan-Wales charity. Since 1981, we have helped more than half a million people find and keep a home.

We are currently seeking a Treasurer to fill a vacancy arising from April 2021. The appointee will work closely with our Head of Finance and will be a member of our board of trustees; s/he will scrutinise and inform our financial management, maintaining a strategic overview of the finances that underpin our charitable work, as well as making an active contribution, with fellow board members, to our overall strategy and effectiveness.

The expected time commitment is approximately 5-7 hours per month on average; virtual meetings are an important part of our current, and we anticipate our future, ways of working. This is a voluntary role but out of pocket expenses will be provided.

We welcome candidates from across Wales and from under-represented groups including: women, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities, disabled people, people with relevant lived experience and young people.

Please download the Trustee Information Pack below for further information on Shelter Cymru, the role and how to apply.

If you would like an informal discussion about the role, we encourage you to contact the CEO and/or current Treasurer. Please contact the CEO, Ruth Power, in the first instance via ruthp@sheltercymru.org.uk using the title ‘Treasurer Recruitment’.

The closing date for applications is 10am on Monday, 18th January 2021.

Peer Training – remote working

Everyone in Wales should have a decent affordable home: it is the foundation for the health and wellbeing of people and communities.

This volunteering role will be supporting our policy and research staff to design and develop an accredited training package for peer researchers. Peer researchers are people with lived experience of homelessness. They are employed by Shelter Cymru to help us conduct our research. Using peer researchers allows the research process to be better experience for participants. Peer researchers also help shape our research as they are experts by experience. The role will require some experience of teaching/developing courses and lesson plans. You do not necessarily need knowledge of peer research.
