The branch is looking for volunteers

The Royal British Legion Swiss branch is currently looking for people willing and able to help in the following fields:

Standard bearer
You will take part in official ceremonies (about 5 per year), bear our standard and represent the branch in Switzerland as well as aboard. Equipment and training are provided. You should have your own mean of transport and will be required to undergo a medical check. For this position, people living in the Geneva  / Vaud region will be given priority as most events are in those regions.

Regional Poppy Appeal volunteer
As a Regional Poppy Appeal volunteer, you will be assigned a geographical area and be called upon to develop a network of donation points, such as pubs, churches, sport institutions, and companies susceptible to employ British people. You will distribute poppies, leaflets and other material provided to you and may be required to send mailings. We are especially looking for volunteers in areas such as Valais, Neuch√Ętel, Jura and Swiss Germany, although help is needed generally in all regions of Switzerland. For this position, you should allow for enough spare time during the October - December period.

Regional Welfare Volunteer
Our main objective is to provide help and support to our beneficiaries. As a Regional Welfare Volunteer, you may be called upon to visit people hospital bound or homebound, keep regular contacts with beneficiaries, prepare structured claims to request support. You will need to learn abou the charity and the support we provide, and you should have a fairly good spoken and written french, as contacts with local authorities may be required. Please note that you will be requested to demonstrate clean criminal records.

Administrative support
Are you organised, have attention to details? Can you use Word and Excel and have your own computer? Then we need you to assist in preparing and sending mailings, minutes, agenda. You may also be called upon in helping organising events. Very good spoken and written English is mandatory.
