Citizens Advice Bureaux turn to HR for volunteers

Citizens
Advice Bureaux across the UK
are calling on HR professionals to help the problem-solving charity serve the
community.

The
independent organisation helps people resolve their money, legal and other
problems by providing information and advice and by influencing policymakers.

Bureaux
dealt with more than 560,000 employment problems in 2002-2003, with many
relating to discrimination at work, dismissal and redundancy, as well as terms
and conditions.

Chief
executive of Citizens Advice, David Harker,
said: “Volunteers are the backbone of the service. Those working in the HR
sector can provide valuable skills and experience that would be a major boost
to bureaux.”

You
can call the Citizens Advice volunteer hotline on 08451 264264.
