Sponsorship/Events – Want to get sponsored or run an event for us? Click here to see our on-line fundraising and sponsorship facility.
Employers - We can design a programme to assess commitment, work skills, time-keeping etc. for your vacancy candidates. Programmes typically last 4-6 weeks and enable you to check out the suitability of potential employees and give them some training and work experience before you commit to employing them. See our Zink Employability website or ring 01298 214926 for more details.
Volunteers – our foodbank relies on volunteers in a number of different ways. Thankfully we are well staffed at the moment but we are looking for volunteer work coaches. If you have experience of the world of work, having applied for several jobs, attended interviews and held jobs long term during your working life then we’d love to hear from you. Full training is provided and posts can be as little as two hours a week.
