Bureau to offer training
Airdrie Citizens Advice Bureau is running a training programme fo r M o n k l a n d s residents interested in volunteering with the organisation.
The 11- week- l o n g initiative gets off and running next Tuesday and will see tutor-led sessions on offer covering online learning and practical work.
A spokesperson for the bureau told the Advertiser: “Training to be an adviser will suit those who enjoy working with people and are looking for a new challenge.
“It may particularly suit those who may have recently retired or are thinking of returning to the job market.
“No experi e n c e is necessary, but recruits must be over 18-years-old and prepared to commit seven hours per week, for a minimum of six months, after their completion of the bureau’s training programme.”
Anyone interested in taking part in the training programme can contact the bureau by calling 01236 754109 for a recruitment pack, or to find out more about what the sessions have to offer.
Meanwhile, the bureau’s advice surgeries are back running as normal following a break for the September weekend holiday.
They take place at Monklands Hos p i t a l , every Monday, alternating between a half and full day, Plains and Caldercruix community centres on Tuesdays and Salsburgh community centre each Wednesday.
