Job Details

Give Us Time takes holidays donated by owners of holiday groups, hotels, holiday homes and timeshares and matches them with military families in need of rest, rehabilitation and reconnection after long periods of separation. We help service families reconnect and provide them with the chance to spend time together and to reaffirm their family bond especially where illness, injury or bereavement is a factor.

The role can be whatever the right candidate would like to make it, with the flexibility to get involved at all levels of the charity.

• A enthusiastic hard worker, keen to get stuck in and help out wherever they can
