Volunteering for Save and Sound

Volunteering for Save and Sound

Thank you to everyone who applied to be an oral history interviewer.  The application window is now closed and training will take place next month.  If there are any further opportunities, they will be advertised here and distributed to credit unions via trade associations. 

Applications are still open for the Digital Volunteer role and updated details, now we know more about the website, are available to download above.  Applications are open now and have been extended to Friday 27th November. 

Digital Volunteers will make sure the website is populated with a range of photographs and other material.  They will assist in digitisation of a range of material sourced from credit unions and trade associations, cataloguing and uploading to the website. 

Time Commitment - initial training of up to half a day,  this will take place online once the website is ready for population, probably in December 2020 or January 2021.   Monthly meetings (maximum one hour) will take place online, but attendance will be voluntary.  Time commitment and location will be flexible to fit in with other commitments. 

All Roles

Volunteers will be supported to carry out their roles through regular communications and monthly online meetings.  All out of pocket expenses will be paid and, when we are able to meet in person, cake will be provided! 

There will also be opportunities to get involved in events and other activities such as the development of an online course and toolkit for further oral history collection. 

The project is keen to ensure that the diversity of the credit union movement is also reflected in the volunteer team.  Please do get in touch to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about volunteering for Save and Sound.  We are committed to removing any barriers, where possible, to ensure everyone is able to join the team if they wish to do so.
