Interested in Joining the Team?
We're currently recruiting for both listening volunteers and publicity ambassadors to join Surrey Nightline.
To be eligible to volunteer you must be 18 or over and a registered student at the University of Surrey.
Due to the resources invested in training a listening volunteer, we are not able to offer this training to students in their final semester.
As a listening volunteer, you'll go through an extensive research-based training programme (minimum 17 hours total), developing skills you can use your whole life to support those around you.
Listening for Nightline
can of course be challenging, but equally rewarding. The welfare of our listening
volunteers is a core Nightline priority, so you will have many different
avenues for support whenever you need it.
You will be trained
in many skills and will get many chances to practise
before taking a real call. You don't need any prior experience, just a
willingness to learn and a respect for confidentiality. You must also be fluent
Interested? Please read the volunteer info pack HERE for more information. Once you've read through the pack, if you'd like to become a listening volunteer, download the application form HERE and return to firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for applications to Cycle 2 is Monday 5th March, however applying earlier will improve your chances of being selected as we will stop accepting applications once the course is full.
Please remember that
our listening volunteers are anonymous and therefore must not discuss
their application process with anyone.
As a publicity ambassador you'll be part of a team responsible for raising awareness of the service. You'll have the opportunity to organise events, fundraise, design promotional material and publicise the service using creativity and passion.
It's a great opportunity to gain some experience in PR and Communications, whilst helping a really valuable service! All the while you are encouraged to have fun; we want the Nightline volunteer community to be all about friendship, support and enjoying what we do.
