Stage-2 Interview & Training Placement Offer

In general. interview & training is organised to run twice a year – April – June and September – December.

Depending on when our next batch of training sessions are scheduled to take place, we will invite you to the GreenHouse for an informal interview before the training commences. At the interview we will outline general GHM requirements, the benefits of volunteering to both you and our service users, discuss any relevant experience you may have, and the vetting/training process required to become a GHM volunteer.Click Here to Request a place.

All training sessions will be held at the GreenHouse. Please arrive by 10:25/18.25 so the sessions can start on time.

We will also ask you to complete the following forms for our records (if not completed earlier):

  • A Data Protection form requesting your consent to use your personal data/image for GHM administrative purposes and in our promotional material;
  • A GHM volunteer profile form which includes a section for you to provide the contact details of two individuals who can act as character references for you. Both referees must have known you for more than two years, and can be friends or employment acquaintances but not related to you or partners.

We will either offer you a training placement post interview (which you can of course reject should you wish to) or suggest alternative volunteering options should we feel that you might not be suited to our method of working. The alternative options could be:

  • suggesting you contact your local Volunteer Centre and ask to be considered for other volunteering opportunities;
  • offering you an introduction to Stopsley Baptist Church staff with a view to possible volunteering opportunities.
