About the Project

Community Angels is a volunteer befriending project for vulnerable adults in Guildford. Their vision is a community where nobody should feel lonely or isolated, where the strength of relationships means that everyone feels they are valued, supported and that they belong. This is the newest project of Guildford Town Centre Chaplaincy (GTCC), a local charity founded in 2008 by churches in Guildford that exists to demonstrate care and offer non-judgemental support to people in need in the town.

About the role

Community Angels are looking for an organised and experienced individual with a passion for making a difference in the community to join their small, friendly and supportive team at an exciting time in their project development.

They are looking to recruit someone with excellent administrative skills including the ability to use IT packages such as Microsoft Word and Excel and who is a good communicator, self-motivated as well as a team player.

Your particular focus will initially be on improving and helping to develop the Community Angel’s existing data to track their work with their clients. There is scope to be involved in different areas of the project and to develop the role in collaboration with a core team of volunteers and the Project Co-ordinator.

They currently have a team of over 30 volunteers, who are carefully matched to referrals from different agencies to befriend adults in challenging circumstances.

This is an exciting opportunity to join their team and contribute significantly to a project which aims to address the growing problem of loneliness on a local level.
