Careers Springboard seeks a volunteer who can work on our SalesForce and WordPress website issues - someone with IT background, experience of Salesforce and WordPress and website development skills such as php and html.

 

What will you be doing?

Careers Springboard has a developing website and we want to maximise the possibilities and opportunities which it represents. Our IT Volunteer would focus on Search Engine Optimization and create more from our current website with increased activity and interaction with our volunteers and membership.

We meet every Monday evening, currently on a virtual/Zoom basis, and we want our IT Volunteer to attend/participate in at least 25% of those meetings in order to interact with fellow volunteers and trustees.

The IT Volunteer will work with our Trustee/Executive Committee members in charge of Administration.

Careers Springboard is a registered charity, self-help group, established over 29 years ago in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire, staffed by volunteers, providing help and guidance to redundant and unemployed professionals, managers and to graduates who seek employment. The IT Volunteer would attend some of our Monday evening meetings.

There is a programme of weekly Monday evening meetings (at Gerrards Cross) (currently virtual/Zoom) on job search skills such as CV preparation, Internet job search, telephone techniques, networking, Linkedin, interview preparation etc.

Joining Careers Springboard as a volunteer provides unique opportunities for those who wish to undertake activities which will benefit the South Bucks community and which will enhance a personal sense of achievement.

What are we looking for?

In order for him/her to be most effective we seek a volunteer who can work on our IT and website issues on a weekly basis. As well as a solid IT background we need someone who has experience of Salesforce and WordPress and preferably website development skills such as php and html.

Check out our new website to see the progress we have made with it so far.

We want our new IT Volunteer to "take it to the next level".

What difference will you make?

Over nearly 30 years Careers Springboard has helped 3,000+ managers, professionals and graduates get back into work. Those seeking our help in 2020 expect us to operate with the slickest and most user friendly IT systems and devices - our IT volunteer will maximise our use of our website in order to achieve that.

We are under increasing pressure from our sponsors and trustees to record, analyse, and report on our application process and our successes with job seekers - with direction from our new IT volunteer our website can generate that information.

Our website can also act more as a marketing tool for Careers Springboard, seeking out job seekers who will find our services invaluable in their search for employment.

What's in it for the volunteer?

This is your chance to add a valuable Volunteer role to your CV and to enhance your personal sense of achievement. This is a Volunteer role which will ensure that your CV and work experience stands out "from the crowd".

Job seeking is becoming an increasingly sophisticated and demanding process. For Careers Springboard to recognise this and to face up to this we need a volunteer who will have the determination to make our website work fully for our organisation and its job seekers.

This is your chance to maximise your SalesForce and WordPress skills. You will be able to demonstrate your ability and success to  potential employers.
