Regional Almoner Required

The CIBSE North West Region are looking for a volunteer to take on the role of Regional Almoner. 

The work of the CIBSE Benevolent Fund Trust depends heavily on the efforts of Almoners who currently represent each Region of the Institution.

The role of the Almoner is to care for those members, past members, and/or dependants, who are less fortunate and who are in need, within the compass of the limits set out by the Benevolent Fund Trustees.

An Almoner should have a reasonable knowledge of social care in the Community; have a sympathetic demeanour; be able to give forthright advice; and be able to take immediate and effective action where it is necessary.

The role of Almoner demands adequate time availability, whether the aspirant is still involved in business, or who has retired, in the necessary attendances at meetings at Regional level, and at Balham, together with maintaining contact with current and new Regional Client dependants of the Trust, on a regular basis.
