About the programme:
The Micah Liverpool Volunteer Programme works with people who have been unemployed long-term, supporting them for 9 weeks to improve their skills, confidence and readiness for work.
They offer a variety of volunteering roles at Liverpool Cathedral and build partnerships with employers through our network at the cathedral.
All of our volunteers attend our recruitability training and complete vocational qualifications in Health & Safety, Emergency First Aid and Food Hygiene.
There are 4 key elements of the Volunteer Programme:
Roles include retail, catering, administration, food bank, cleaning and more. All voluntary placements are on the Cathedral site
Practical training and learning opportunities
Focusing only on practical, useful skills that help people search for, and secure, the right job for them. We also provide vocational courses that strengthen your CV and job applications
Guaranteed interviews when you’re ready for work
Through extensive employer engagement Micah volunteers can access guaranteed interviews with organisations such as Liverpool Philharmonic and the University of Liverpool
One to one support when needed
