Pilgrims Hospices is looking for Volunteer Receptionists at its Canterbury hospice.

Do you have some spare time to help support the Pilgrims Hospices Reception team? We have a range of shifts that we need to cover, including:

  • Fortnightly Friday (4.00 – 7.00 pm)
  • Fortnightly Sunday (4.00 – 7.00 pm)
  • We also need a bank of people who may be prepared to cover vacant shifts on a flexible basis especially weekdays (9.00 am – 1.00 pm) and (4.00 – 7.00 pm) and weekends all shifts.

If you think you may be able to help us, and if you have some experience of working with the public, we would like you to be one of our much-valued volunteer receptionists. This role includes being the first point of contact for visitors, welcoming them in a polite, courteous and professional manner as well as supporting the smooth running of the reception and serving food and drinks to our patients. You would also use the till and undertake some administration tasks.

All hospice volunteers are given a full induction, which includes an introduction to Pilgrims Hospices and some guidance around volunteering with us. In addition, you will be given the opportunity to shadow an experienced volunteer.
