We are seeking help for Rottingdean Whiteway Centre, a busy self-funded community charity run by volunteers. We employ tutors to teach courses during term time, we are a meeting place for local groups and clubs, a nursery operates daily in the youth hall, and we have two large halls and two smaller rooms that can be hired for parties and gatherings.

This volunteer role is to look after the bookings for regular hirers. These ‘User Groups’ book in advance using our website. Bookings need checking, approving and following up if payment has not been made. Some groups need occasional support to make their bookings. From time to time new or potential regular hirers will need introducing to the centre and help setting up on our website.

The successful volunteer will need to visit the centre in Rottingdean when required, but most of the communications will be by email. Training will be given on our website.
