There are loads of ways to get involved at Halo and for you to support your local community!
We don’t have a full list of roles, as there are simply to many but here’s a few to give you a flavour of the kinds of roles and areas you could volunteer in…
What’s in it for YOU?
At Halo we understand the importance of rewards and want to reward our hard-working volunteers! We are proud to offer a fantastic benefits package for you to enjoy in return for giving up your free time to support Halo, your local leisure charity supporting your local community.
Our volunteer benefits package is put together to be relevant and useful to you. Reviewed throughout the year, new incentives are often added into the mix to make life richer and to ensure our volunteers feel valued.
Here are our current benefits you’ll receive when you volunteer with Halo….
We recognise and celebrate our volunteers' loyalty and commitment when key milestones are reached with special anniversary treats!
Discounted Halo Cafe Purchases
Our Halo cafes are the place where visitors wind down and catch up with friends. We want our volunteers to enjoy the same, so volunteers receive 25% off their total bill when purchasing drinks or food.
Halo will reimburse any payment of expenses relevant to your volunteering role.
Halo will provide you with necessary training, great support from our friendly staff and a Volunteer Champion.
Rewards & Cashback
And when you’re not volunteering? You have access to a huge range of discounts or cashback on hundreds of retailers, travel companies, restaurants & many more besides with Tempo credits.
Training and Development
This is an amazing sector to volunteer in, developing skills you can take into the future. That’s why we deliver exceptional in-house training and development. Your future starts here.
We’re a Social Enterprise that means #PeopleBeforeProfit and our volunteers are an essential part of our offer
Life at Halo Leisure is not like being in other gyms or sports centre. We are smart and savvy – we know our customers want to work out in stunning spaces using the best equipment – but our Social Enterprise status (with all profits ploughed back into the work we do to get more people more active more often) means we use commercial principles for community good, putting people before profit. And we’ve won plenty of awards for the difference we’ve made to people as we’ve grown since (we now manage leisure centres across four counties including Herefordshire, Shropshire, Wiltshire and Bridgend County).
As a volunteer you will be a member of this community, networking with and working alongside incredible people and using your skills – and we welcome volunteers not only with sporting skills (you don’t need to have any to sign up) but with customer service skills or those invaluable people skills (kindness, empathy, team working and more) that can add value to the groups we run here and the visitors we welcome into centres to work out or wind down.
We offer support at every level, for every ability, at every age, and our staff and volunteers are learning too, from each other and ongoing training
At Halo we welcome everyone from elite athletes training for international competitions to school children wanting to learn to swim, from teams coming into our centres for tennis, football, squash, circuits and classes to individuals sent to us by their GP to aid recovery or prevent ill health.
And so many others in between. Every one of them is welcome, and every one receives support to help them reach their goals.
We have a team who live our values and change lives everyday
This is a way of working that influences the decisions we make and the people who volunteer for us. Our staff and volunteers get it – the community benefit at the heart of this organisation – and live and breathe our mission to promote physical and mental health, articulating it to the community in the way they work and the support they offer.
Our volunteers – like our staff – enjoy ongoing training while they are with us and, crucially, learn new skills from each other and our full-time team and the very different people with different backgrounds and different needs who come into our centres. Our volunteers find what they put in the more they get out, in terms of connections with others, satisfaction from serving their community, and skills they can use in the future which many say give them a platform and sense of purpose for the future.
Halo would be nothing without its team – volunteers who reach, teach, engage and inspire our visitors every day, developing their own professional skills as they go
