citizens advice volunteering interview

I have an interview in just under two hours for a volunteering position at cab. It's 1 hour a week as a receptionist.

I'm nervous even though this is volunteering and was wondering if anyone has any last minute advice? :smile:

What sort of things are they likely to ask?

Are the interviews generally informal?

an hour a week as a receptionist, unpaid, and they still make you jump through all these hoops just to have a chance at being given this placement


wow, just reading that made me die a little inside. I might just quit my ever-lasting quest for a part-time paid job and go into summer hibernation.

Yep, I had to make an enquiry, then was emailed an application form which I filled in and returned to them, then got an email about an interview which only then stated it would be for an hour a week :p: All I knew until that point was that it was tuesday evenings.

Hope the interview isn't too formal though it'll be good practise for the interview I have tomorrow for an actual job :smile:

They were supposed to let me know by the end of the week and I've heard nothing. Why is it so hard to just volunteer? I'm qualified, I have the time since I only work part time. Why can't they just tell me yes or no :s:

Still nothing, may just assume they're not going to get back to me.

Anyone know why it's so hard to volunteer for one hour a week?!

Ok so I got a letter- yes a letter! They communicated with my via email before my interview so why not just email me? Instead I have to wait a week and a half to get a letter telling me due to how much interest they had, I didn't get it.

It's an hour a week, why is it so sodding difficult to just volunteer?

Hi, how soon did Citizens Advice get back to you after you returned the application form to them?
