Job Description

Could you make a difference as a volunteer Digital Champion?

We are looking for people with a good understanding of how to use computer to give peer support to people who are new to computers. You will help them to do things like:

  • Teaching someone to use Google
  • Helping someone set up an email account
  • Helping people use word to write a CV
  • Setting someone up on Skype
  • Showing someone how to use job search websites

You need a good level of basic computer skills, but you don't have to be an IT genius. Much more important is having enthusiasm and patience to spend some time helping others to get online.

In return you’ll get:

  • The opportunity to develop your own skills and knowledge about digital technology
  • Free accredited online training so you know better how to work with others and what sort of things you could teach them
  • The chance to part of a community of Champions who can help each other and share ideas
  • Ongoing support from a dedicated mentor
  • Rewards and awards! You’ll receive a Certificate and an online Open Badge for each Digital Champion course you complete – you can put it on your CV and show others what you’ve done.
  • A free DBS check and payment for travel expenses
  • Immense satisfaction that you’ve made a difference to someone else

Could you join the team?

  • We are looking for volunteers at a number of projects in the Islington area
