]Practical and DIY
We're looking for someone with professional level carpentry or joinery skills who would be happy to a few specific tasks around our centre. We have staircases that we'd like to have storage (shelving and cupboards) built under it. Our centre does not have a lot of storage space so maximising the potential of the areas we have would be a huge benefit to us, saving both money and volunteer/staff time on a weekly basis. There are a range of other improvements that could be made if someone was available to volunteer regularly but this would suit someone who just wanted to do a limited amount of volunteering and know they've made a huge impact to a small charity. Work would most likely need to happen during weekends so any disruption to the centre users is at a minimum but it would also be possible to work on some weekdays or evenings.
Premises type: On site
Public transport: We are on Cowbridge Road East so the 13, 17, 18 are the most frequent buses but there are a large number of other routes that pass the centre.
Is this role flexible? Yes, absolutely. You would be doing something highly specialised and we would do everything to accommodate your availability.
Min hours expected per week: 0 hours
Min period of commitment:
Requirements: Carpentry or joinery, experience in a relevant trade, the ability to work to a high standard and design and implement the project.
/ Induction/ One to one supervision/ Social events/meetings

Age requirements: 18+
