Latest Jobs & Volunteering Opportunities
What do we require?
We are looking for people who would be happy to train up as Volunteer Oxygen Chamber Operators.
We need a weekly Monday 11.45am to 4.30pm shift to be covered or a Monday 5pm to 8.30pm shift (correct as of 24/10/22). We are also looking for people for general cover for absence and holidays.
All travel expenses can be paid if required.
This is a real people person volunteer role; you’ll be able to put people at ease experiencing Oxygen Therapy for the first time as well as have a general calming and friendly nature.
Your job is to help members who require it into the chamber and ensure they are sitting comfortably and ready for their session; to maintain cleanliness and switch pipes for each person between sessions; to operate and observe the desk controls; to ensure the Health and Safety of those in the chamber and to be able to act in an emergency evacuation. Morning shifts consist of either 2 Oxygen Therapy sessions and afternoon shifts usually have 3 Oxygen Therapy sessions. A session inside the chamber lasts approximately 1 hour and 5 minutes. You will also look after members taking ambient oxygen outside the chamber (we have 2 stations).
The oxygen chamber is a low risk environment but does need monitoring carefully. You do not need to have any specific experience as you will receive full training.
