Just saw this in Guardian Jobs.  They already have ‘volunteers’ doing this position though from what I am told they are remunerated very well through a rather unusual method of payment.  Interview upcoming.

London Ref: BIL/VO

The Big Issue produces a publication that is sold on the streets by people who are homeless or living in temporary accommodation. This provides vendors with the means to earn a living and regain control over their lives and continue their journey away from homelessness towards social & financial inclusion. Our mission is simple: we exist solely to help the homeless to help themselves.

We are looking for friendly, enthusiastic, motivated & sociable volunteers to provide crucial support to both our Vendor Support Department in Vauxhall & our ‘On-street-sales support’ teams in Central London. In these posts, you will be changing people’s lives for the better & gaining some invaluable first hand experience in trying to eradicate homelessness.

As part of a dynamic team, you will directly support Big Issue vendors, encouraging & assisting them to maximize their sales & personal development while also educating & informing the public that Big Issue vendors are working, not begging!

No day at The Big Issue is the same – from assisting our energized head office team to working in the sunshine in Covent Garden, you will be at the forefront of social business, participating, learning from & contributing to the teams efforts to challenge homelessness & raise the publics understanding of The Big Issue.

To be a part of this incredible opportunity, you must be enthusiastic, have a strong moral compass & be confident in approaching & talking to people. Our time scale for volunteering is flexible but a commitment to the social objectives of The Big Issue is essential.

If you are interested in these fantastic opportunities, please email your CV and covering letter to personnel@bigissue.com, quoting reference BIL/VO & state what experience you can bring us.

The Big Issue is striving towards Equal Opportunities
