Volunteers for Local Matters community space and TEC welcomed!

Regular or occasional two hour shifts.

Tamar Energy Community is seeking additional volunteers to help us run our recently opened community space – Local Matters.

A key part of our activity is the operation of a community space which can provide a place for local people to meet and discuss local matters such as local food, energy, climate change, local businesses and how they can be supported. Importantly it is also a centre where volunteers can provide energy support and advice for local people.

We are looking for enthusiastic and people centred volunteers who are interested in finding out more about our activities, are interested in talking to people about their energy use and opportunities to improve their home comfort; and helping us develop Local Matters into a thriving hub within the community.

We will provide training for the right candidates.

Local Matters is open from 11:00 to 13:00 6 days a week (Monday to Saturday) and from mid September we will be adding an additional shift from 13:00 to 15:00.

You may be able to work each week or once or more a month. We’re happy to be flexible to fit in with your circumstances.

We also have opportunities for volunteers wishing to take a more active part in the organisation such as supporting our social media development; or assisting with our community generation projects.


If you are interested in applying please email hello@tamarenergycommunity.com with your personal details and experience, your reason for applying and a CV. Initial applications are welcomed by Friday 16th September 2016 but we welcome applications at any time.

If you have any questions please call Kate Royston on 07969-569-444.
