Volunteer Procedure

If you wish to work as a volunteer at WIDA you must complete an application form, stating clearly at the top of the application that it is a volunteer application. All volunteers must complete a Gardá Clearance Form. You will then go through an informal interview process.

If management is satisfied with your application then an offer of voluntary work may be made in writing to the you, subject to: Two satisfactory references and a Gardá Clearance Check.

Your application will be treated similarly to that of employees, in the creation and maintenance of a personal file. You will also complete an induction programme within 2 weeks of your commencement. You will receive supervision in the same way as employees and will follow WIDA policies and procedures that apply to volunteers.
