    Volunteer Data Analyst - Remote Working

    Do you like working with data? Enjoy pulling reports and statistics? We have loads for you! We are looking for someone who knows how to analyse large amounts of data so we can demonstrate how our services are performing, where we can improve and highlight any gaps which could be filled. We also require various data capture to support our fundraising applications. 

    If this sounds like something you would be interested in, get in touch or complete our application form. Hours are flexible and open for discussion.

    To be a volunteer, you don’t need any qualifications although if you have specific skills that might be useful, do make those known on your application. What we do need in reliability and a commitment to help regularly and to be friendly and want to work as part of a really inclusive team.

    We will provide you with an induction, training and support and you will be fully insured. We will give you a reference if you are looking to volunteer for a while until you have experience to look for paid employment – helpful if you want to improve your confidence when re-entering the job market.

    “Volunteering at The Living Room has made me revaluate my approach to many things, particularly addiction. It has also given me a timestamp for my week (something to look forward to), continuing stimulation and interaction with others. I believe I make a contribution – in a small way- which in turn gives me satisfaction that my time is well spent.”
