Meet our Volunteers

We have a small team of dedicated volunteers who help us in a variety of ways at Mansfield CVS.  We simply could not do what we do without them!

Over the years we have had a number of people who have volunteered their time and expertise for us.  Some stay for a short while before moving into employment whilst others stay longer and become an integral part of the Mansfield CVS family.

Visit Community House any day of the week and you are sure to meet one of our volunteers.  From covering reception to taking the post, from giving new volunteer interviews to making strategic decisions for the organisation on our Board of Trustees, they help make Mansfield CVS the fantastic place it is.

I started working at Mansfield CVS aged just 18, initially as an admin apprentice studying a level 2 NVQ and later progressing to doing a “Higher” apprenticeship (NVQ level 3). It was my first job and when I began working here I had very low self-confidence and no practical work experience at all! Due to the nature of the work, helping other charities in the local area, and the lovely people I work with, I soon discovered I really enjoy working in the charity sector and would be very happy to have a career in it – something I had never considered prior to joining MCVS.
