Congresbury Youth Partnership

Name: Handy person
Organisation: Congresbury Youth Partnership
Location: Youth Club Portakabin, Riverside car Park, (Off of Kent Road), Congresbury, North Somerset, BS49 5BD
Type: Part Time
Flexible to suit volunteer's availability. This is not a regular commitment. Likely to be very Ad Hoc. May be asked to assist on any day of the week at any time (if available). Not usually required for the term time sessions or holiday sessions which are; Monday 3 - 6.30pm Tuesday 3 - 5pm Wednesday 3 - 5pm and then 6.30 - 8:30pm Holiday timing vary, but usually Tuesdays and Thursdays.


We are looking for a volunteer, ideally living locally to the CYP cabin, who will be responsible for occasional opening and closing the building for one-off events and liaising with suppliers or maintenance workers who need access. Ideally, this volunteer would have an interest in the maintenance of the building, doing small repairs, and assessing the skills and quotations of persons tendering for larger jobs.
CYP runs three youth sessions a week, and has a couple of regular daytime bookings. These do not need the attention of the handy person.
Although the handy person may not be required to attend on a frequent basis, this is a very important role when needed.
