EAP Volunteer Overview

The Employment Access Programme is essentially about finding sustainable employment opportunities, sponsoring training, and empowering communities by building skills. If you choose to volunteer with EAP, you’ll spend most of your time working on the Employment Help Desk (EHD).

Tasks may include but not limited to:

Assisting clients in finding employment.
Developing and designing client CVs.
Creating email accounts for clients.
Assistance with employment-related phone, fax, scan and email services and job applications.
Facilitate various workshops.
Managing the PC lab so clients can complete job searches and applications.
Capturing and collecting data to be entered and updated in the database.
Open to various tasks such as conducting telephonic surveys as well as other ad hoc admin and projects where necessary.

Skills and attributes needed:

Patient, diligent, with a good eye for detail.
Self-motivated, self-disciplined and hardworking.
PC-literate (highly proficient at Microsoft Word, Excel, and Internet).
Good oral and written communication skills (English essential, French an advantage).
Excellent administration skills.
Interested in interacting with people from different backgrounds and cultures.
Client-oriented and passionate about serving Scalabrini clients in their pursuit toward self-reliance in South Africa.
