We’re looking for pro-active people who already volunteer with the Trust and are familiar with the Selima online expenses system to help support other volunteers in their area to use it. This will involve:
Enthusing local volunteers and employees
Providing demonstrations on a 1-2-1 basis or to small groups
Handling local enquiries over the ‘phone or via email
Being pro-active in promoting Selima and encouraging people to use it
Provide regular feedback and input to the national volunteering team

We’ll provide an induction to make sure you’re confident in using the system, explaining it to others and understand the background processes required for its smooth running. We expect the role to take the equivalent of a day per week, some aspects will be pre planned such as visiting teams in your area whilst other aspects such as providing over the ‘phone/email will be more ad-hoc and demand led.


A great way to get out and meet other individuals and teams in your area.
A rewarding role helping to boost peoples’ confidence, helping people save time and money.
