We need you!
If the answer is YES to these questions, please read on.
We would like to recruit some additional committed and reliable volunteers to become part of our already established Support & Fundraising Team.
The Support Team is involved in
The events take place mainly at weekends and can involve long hours in all types of weather. No previous experience in fundraising is necessary.
This is a voluntary, non-operational role; you will not be on call or expected to go out in the middle of the night. We have a team of Search & Rescue members who do all that.
As a Support Team member, you will become part of an established and well-respected team and have opportunities to meet new people, visit new places and learn different skills. Being part of our team can also give you a sense of self-worth, achievement and a warm and fuzzy feeling.
If you are interested, please email your full name, contact details and post code (so that we can check that you live in our operational area) to email@example.com by the 4th February 2024. Please remember that we are all volunteers so it might take a day or two to reply.
If your application is successful, you will initially join our Support & Fundraising Team as a ‘Prospective member’. You will need to attend the following training sessions (on Tuesday evenings in April and May) and complete the checks listed below.
After completing the initial training and familiarisation sessions you will become a ‘Probationary member’. You will move to ‘Full Support Team member’ status subject to having completed the training, relevant checks and having attended a number of fundraising events and Support Team meetings over a 6-month period.
On becoming a full Support Team member, you will be provided with Cleveland MRT branded outer shell protective clothing for cold and wet weather.
Although the key requirement to join the Support Team is to help with fundraising, other opportunities may arise to get involved with the following activities.
This is not an exhaustive list and in addition to this we would like to hear from you if you have any specialist skills, such as accountancy, IT, public relations, that you feel you could bring to the Support and Fundraising Team.
Applications can be made to join the team in a support role (Operational Support) or as a hill going (Search and Rescue) member.
Applications for either role can be made at any time. Intakes for Operational Support members occur at various times of the year. There is one annual intake for Search and Rescue normally each September.Join Now
