Wisecraft is looking for a volunteer to help their clients engage in joinery and woodworking activities under the supervision of their staff and within a mental health setting.
The role would require you to be a good listener with a pleasant personality and good sense of humour. You will be non judgemental, be able to provide support and encouragement and work well as part of a team.
Knowledge of any aspect of joinery or woodwork is desirable but we can also provide some training.
Description: Wisecraft provides joinery and woodworking activities for our clients to support their journey of recovery. At the Wisecraft Joinery Workshop, supported by staff and volunteers, our clients create and repair furniture, garden pieces and small craft items. The activity provides a foundation for our clients to build self-confidence and to gain skills which may support their recovery and possibly lead to employment.
We have an exciting opportunity available for a Woodwork Assistant to join our team and help our clients.
You will develop good relationships with clients, and provide support and guidance in the use of tools and equipment, under the direction of the joinery supervisor. It is desirable that you will have some DIY, woodwork and/or joinery skills.
