Macmillan Community Buddy (Scotland)

Opportunity image

At Macmillan we give people with cancer everything we’ve got. Are you a good listener and clear communicator? Then we would love you to join our team as a Macmillan Community Buddy and help Macmillan support people living with cancer.

We are looking for Community Buddy Volunteers across all areas of Scotland to provide both in-person and telephone support. The time commitment varies and days/times are flexible but those undertaking the role usually commit to approximately 2-4 hours a week.

Selection will be after an informal interview and on successful completion of online training and induction. The training consists of both self-directed online learning and 'live' online group training and will take a combined total of approximately 10 hours to complete. You will need to complete this training within 6 weeks of submitting your application.

This role is also subject to a PVG check.

By sharing your skills and time, you’ll have the opportunity to utilise and develop your skills and will make a difference to people’s lives. Together, we can be right there for people with cancer. If you would like to join our team, apply to volunteer today!
