Volunteering with Highland Communities Credit Union

 Highland Communities Credit Union is a not for profit, community cooperative, run by its members for its members.

Similar to banks, it provides a Savings and Loans service with a built in Life Insurance Policy. It differs from banks in that, all profit made on interest from loans is paid directly back into the Credit Union and no shareholders are rewarded. There are no large bonuses paid out and no risky investments.

 Lochaber’s Talking Newspaper for the Visually Impaired is looking for Volunteers.

Our Volunteers do jobs as Editors, Readers, Technicians or  Administration personnel  but at the moment it is Admin. Folks we are short of.

All the jobs  except the Admin. one require one to two hours of your time on a Thursday evening from 7 p.m. when the recording is done at  An Drochaid.

Volunteers work on a rota basis but turns can be swapped with other Volunteers if needed.  Travel expenses can be claimed.

The Administrative postition  requires 2 hours of your time on a Thursday afternoon once a month and involves preparing the mail pouches to be sent out and blanking the memory sticks which contain the recording.   Although you would be working on your own it’s not a complicated procedure and training is always given and assistance is only a phone call away.

If you fancy joining our team or if you want more information about the Admin position any of the other jobs please get in touch –  Heather tel: 01397 702 240 or email:  dheathergunn@gmail.com
