WORK VACANCIES & VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
You may be interested in volunteering with us. See information on this page about how to volunteer.
Why volunteer with us?
We truly value the work of passionate and committed volunteers (women aged 18+) who enable us to provide life-changing support that women in our local community need. We welcome and value volunteers’ involvement and the contribution they make to Watford Women’s Centre through their skills, experience and energy.
Volunteering benefits you too, through meeting new people and learning new skills, as well as knowing that you have made a real difference to our community.
So if you are passionate about making a positive change in our local community and have some time to spare, we would love to hear from you!
Throughout the year, we seek volunteers in a range of areas which may include:
- classroom assistants
- admin/reception work
- social media
- Domestic Abuse call takers
If you decide to volunteer for the Centre we will provide you with the support and development you need to carry out your role and achieve your personal goals. We are proud that many of our paid staff began their journey with us as volunteers and countless more have used the skills and experience gained as a volunteer to move into paid work of their choice.
If you have an expert skill you’d like to share, or even just think you’d make a fun team member, then we may have a space for you! For general volunteer opportunities available throughout the year please download and Complete an application form, and email it to email@example.com

All volunteers will undergo an enhanced DBS check.
WWC have helped me to get my life back on track, I have built confidence, gained administration qualifications and met some amazing women. I now volunteer as an administrator to give back to the centre and support the amazing work they do.
All volunteers will undergo and enhanced DBS Check.

Counselling placements available!
We are a women-only counselling service offering long term (up to a year) low cost (£15-£40) counselling to women aged 18 and over. If you are passionate about supporting women and are in your second year of a Level 4 Diploma course (or higher) and already have some client hours/are looking for a second placement, we would like to hear from you. We ask that you have counselling experience before you join us because of the complexity of the women we work with. However, we do sometimes make exceptions for women who have relevant experience gained in paid or unpaid employment.
