Be a part of our Office Team
If you enjoy working in an office environment that is organized and friendly, come join the team we are building! We currently have a few dedicated office volunteers who provide office coverage and support for the Office Manager, Office Assistant, and other Hospice SLO Staff, but are in need of a few more.
Office volunteers are not required to attend the In-Home volunteer training (though it is encouraged!). However, they must interview with office staff and complete a livescan before volunteering in the office. After the potential volunteer’s livescan clears, Hospice SLO office staff will schedule a time to train the new office volunteer.
Hospice SLO aims to have the front office covered by volunteers in two to four hour increments from 9:00am–4:30pm every day.
Primary duties include answering the telephones and greeting clients. We also appreciate having coverage while the Office Manager and or Office Assistant take their lunch breaks or attend meetings. Volunteers may also be asked to assist with smaller clerical projects, such as mailing letters, filing, or making copies. While office volunteers do not need to have prior office experience, they must be comfortable learning how to use the phones and the computer. They are also expected to uphold confidentiality.
Additional duties vary depending on the interests and skills of each volunteer. There are needs like writing acknowledgements to donors, creating counseling folders, data entry, creating flyers, doing research on the internet, etc. Office volunteers may have the opportunity to assist other staff members when they need support as well.
