HVC joins with GPT Charlestown to create a Welcome Team
The Hunter Volunteer Centre and GPT Charlestown Square have teamed up to form the GPT Charlestown Square Volunteer Welcome Team. Charlestown Square is the largest shopping and entertainment destination in the Hunter region, with over 270 speciality stores and 3,500 car parks. It is important that every visitor feels welcome once they are at Charlestown Square. The Volunteer Welcome Team is a group of friendly and fun loving volunteers who love helping people. This could be from helping someone find their car, to directing them to where they need to go in order to find a specific store or utility.
This program trains volunteers, who would like to be employed in retail and customer service, with the necessary skill set valued by employers. All team members will receive training in customer service and retail skills to gain a Statement of Achievement. This role is also approved for the Centrelink Volunteer Work Initiative and Manual Obligation Schemes.
During their time on the Welcome Team, volunteers will develop customer service skills and experience, build relationships with all centre staff including Guest Experience Members, and Centre Management Personnel and be able to network with retailers who recruit on regular basis.
