CORE Ireland has a number of volunteers working in our office, delivering and collecting items for our ‘Nourish Project’ and managing our social media from home. We rely on our volunteers for the work that we do. Each volunteer plays an essential role in our group.
Because we understand that your time is donated for free, we offer flexible working times and there is no minimum amount of hours you have to complete. Work experience is offered to those who wish to expand their skills and we offer several roles in our organisation, some can even be done from home. Our chairperson will also happily write a reference for any volunteers who make the effort to work with us.
Each of our volunteers has their own background and come from all different backgrounds. We all join together to help maintain CORE as an essential hub in the community.
Office Work: Our office is in the Meath Enterprise center, Navan. We have volunteers in the office from 10am to 4pm on Monday-to Friday each week. Thanks to our sponsors, we have 5 working desktops and 4 laptops available for use in our office. Office work would include planning for events, projects and future work that needs to be done. It would also include filling out forms, data collection and compilation.
Social Media: Core Ireland have various social media platforms active, such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. All of these accounts are run by volunteers. Managing social media means that each volunteer would be responsible for reposting relevant events/stories, writing small posts for our social media and finding striking images to liven up our pages. If comfortable, the volunteer would also be involved in the upkeep of our website. [Can be done from home]
Projects: Our projects are a huge part of what CORE do. Our main project is The Nourish Project . This position would include donating your time to organizing donations and delivering/collecting donations.
Blog Posts: Our website depends on blog posts to keep our visitors interested. If you have an interest in writing about the environment, physical/mental health, local community groups or anything in this area, we would love to hear from you. Details about what’s required for blog posts will be given ahead of time and we only ask for as many blog posts as you can do, whether that be one or ten. [Can be done from home].
Events/Fundraising team: Core as an organisation do not fundraise for ourselves as we do not accept monetary donations. However, many of the groups we work with require these donations. As part of the fundraising team, you will be involved in planning and organising events. You will also be collaborating with Core’s partners and other local groups.
Volunteering Skills/Time: As part of our services, we do various projects in the community. Occasionally we require volunteers with specific skills such as an electrician, a plasterer, a builder etc,. We would greatly appreciate anyone with specific skills who could donate a few hourse every few weeks to help us in our projects to make the community a better place. This would be specifically for our Extreme Community Care (ECC) Project.
