Enjoy Reception/phone work? Catholic Charities of Merrimack Valley Lowell office is looking for volunteer receptionists as administrative support to join our team of dedicated professionals.  Shift times are Monday-Friday; 9AM-1PM and 1PM-4:30PM.

For many of our clients it takes courage to ask for help - seeing a friendly welcoming face when they enter our building can make all the difference!  Tasks include welcoming guests as they enter the building, redirecting callers on an easy-to-learn system, data entry/intake for food pantry and other modest administrative support; training provided.  

Willing and able to greet our clients with compassion and kindness in a non-judgmental way is essential.  Experience in customer service and office work needed. Proficiency in Microsoft Office and bilingual, Spanish/English fluency strongly preferred.
