Watch this page for jobs and opportunities for volunteering in Calibre.
We have vacancies within our library for volunteers to help with checking and processing of CDs and memory sticks. Full training will be given. The minimum volunteering commitment is one session per week of at least 2 hours, although many volunteers choose to stay considerably longer and some volunteer for several sessions a week.
Please visit our Volunteering page to find out more about how volunteers assist us and how much they enjoy it.
We are often able to offer short-term placements to corporate teams or work experience for school pupils. Recent corporate volunteer teams have included McAfee, Dun and Bradstreet and the RAF Catering Squadron. Pupils from Henry Floyd and Aylesbury High School have also helped us with specific projects - more information is available on our News pages. Please call us on 01296 432339 for more details.
Volunteer Audio Checkers Needed
Do you enjoy listening to audiobooks or know someone who does?
Calibre Audio Library is looking for volunteers to check their recordings before they go into the library. You will need to be able to listen to audiobooks on MP3 CD and be able to accurately report the location of any errors using the digital display on your listening device (e.g. a computer or a CD player with the feature). It is also important that checkers can complete a checking form and relate back to us any problems on the recording.
Distance from Calibre is not an issue as we are able to send the recordings free of postage using ‘Articles for the Blind’ labels.
Please contact Denise James, Editorial Coordinator, on 01296 432339 if you would like to become involved.
