Portable Appliance Test Volunteer (PAT)

PORTABLE APPLIANCE TEST VOLUNTEER

Longfield receives a wide range of domestic electrical appliances donations. All of these need to be checked to ensure that they are in good working order, safe to use and have passed a Portable Appliance Test (PAT).

The role is to test the items so that we ensure that they comply with Longfield’s PAT Testing Guide and The Institute of Engineering and Technology’s Code of Practice for In Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment.

The volunteer will need to be confident in passing or failing items. Experience in PAT checking or basic electrical knowledge would be beneficial but is not essential. An ability to work with minimal supervision is necessary. 

You would be volunteering at our Warehouse in Nailsworth as part of the wider volunteering team there.  

Ideally you would be available at least once a week for four hours, either Morning or Afternoon

For full details please take a look at the role profile 

Please email volunteering@longfield.org.uk for more information and to arrange an informal meeting with the logistics team.
