Bath and North East Somerset, West Wiltshire, Somerset
Permanent
Part Time (21 hours per week)
£20,000 - £25,000 FTE + car/car allowance

 

Already working in a volunteer co-ordinator role, you will have experience of co-ordinating services, together with an understanding of Health and Social Care. You will know just how important our volunteers are to us. Essential to everything we do, we are committed to providing the best possible volunteering experience for everyone who gives their time to Macmillan and to developing new volunteering roles that meet the changing needs of the one in three of us who will get cancer.

Reporting to our Volunteering Service Manager (VSM) you will support them with the on-going delivery and co-ordination of existing and new Macmillan Volunteering Services including the recruitment and training of volunteers, the referral process and volunteer support. You will provide operational assistance with referral pathways for the services to be delivered including covering for both the VSM and Lead Volunteers as necessary. You will work to enhance the quality of Macmillan Direct Volunteering Services schemes to deliver emotional and practical support to people affected by cancer and ensuring they are sustainable over the longer term.

Your track record in successfully co-ordinating and supporting volunteering projects working directly with vulnerable service users, coupled with your understanding of health and social care, will enable you to meet the complex support and safeguarding needs of multiple volunteers and service users and ensure best practice is embedded in all stages of each service.

Macmillan is committed to actively developing you. Your benefits will include BUPA, life assurance, pension, childcare vouchers, generous leave, and interest free loans for season ticket and gym membership. The role is home based and involves daily travel in the normal course of the work and therefore a current valid driver licence is essential. Some evening and out-of-hours work will also be required, and occasional overnight stays.
