Volunteer Speaker

The role of the Tools with a Mission (TWAM) speaker is to talk to groups in your local community leaving them with the challenge to support TWAM through tool collections, financial provision or by volunteering.  The groups you speak to will be diverse in nature and could include churches schools, Rotary Clubs and many others.

The role is available throughout England, Wales and Scotland as we seek to grow our speaker network.  You will be speaking in your general geographical area but how far you go is up to you as you are free to accept or decline talk requests as you wish.

The role will generally be needed for the dates and times the group is looking for so could be daytime, evening or weekends, although there may be some flexibility and you do not have to accept a speaking engagement.

Typical tasks / more itemised description of the role:

  • Taking calls and emails from members of the public and arranging talk engagements.
  • Preparing a presentation and ensuring you have sufficient supplies of all literature you may need.
  • Carrying out the talk leaving groups with the challenge to support TWAM.
  • Passing on any donations made by the group to Head Office for thank you letters to be prepared.
  • If tools have been provided, arrange for the local collector or TWAM van to pick up from you or follow up in a few weeks and arrange pick up if a collection is being made.      

We provide an induction to the role which may be either over the phone, electronically or in person and a volunteer handbook on starting.  You will have a named contact within TWAM for any questions or problems and further training can be provided as required.  You will also be given a TWAM Polo Shirt wear and an ID Card if required.  A Speaker pack will also be provided which includes presentations on a memory stick, written narrative for presentations, Pictures and Posters and examples of our publicity material (of which you can obtain larger quantities from Head Office).

Skills

From the role, you will gain a warm satisfaction at the difference you are making to peoples lives.  You will also have opportunities if you wish to learn new skills.  We will provide a reference if required for a future employer or other organisation.
