It is unlikely that taking on this voluntary role will by itself create a pathway to career advancement. However, there are elements of this role that you can use to substantiate claims against many selection criteria in a job application. For example:

  • Undertaking this voluntary role has demonstrated your drive and commitment to support the values and code of conduct of the organisation
  • Being selected for this role supports that the organisation has confidence in your well-developed communication and interpersonal skills, and capacity to act with integrity
  • Attending training (and annual refresher training), and providing advice to employees,   has increased your understanding of human resource policies and procedures (including privacy and right to information)

As well as job coaching services, I also provide training for Harassment Contact Officers. For more information on this, please visit my web site here.
