COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP & NETWORK COORDINATOR – LONDON, SOUTHEAST & EAST
Tempo Time Credits is a charity serving communities across the UK by engaging, encouraging and enabling volunteers. We provide the glue which binds local voluntary partnerships and community-based solutions.
Tempo Time Credits galvanises community organisations to drive positive change for themselves and be more resilient through more individuals and more diverse groups of people volunteering. The Time Credits model is based on a fundamental principle that Volunteer’s time is valuable and should be valued.
Tempo Time Credits are the thread that connects volunteers, third sector, services, and businesses together through our projects and Tempo Time Credit networks. We do this through a digital time credit system that recognises and rewards volunteers for the hours they give. Volunteers can then exchange these for activities and experiences – like cinema tickets, entry to visitor attractions or a swim or gym session.
Tempo’s culture is at our core and our staff team operate in line with our workplace values which are: -
• Everyone’s contribution – We encourage self-belief, mutual respect, and recognition.
• Ambition – We have a can-do attitude, are hopeful, resilient, and positive.
• Connection – Passionate people, teamwork and collaboration are key to our success.
• Creativity – We are curious and inventive; we encourage fun and imagination to achieve this.
• Resourcefulness – We learn together, share our expertise, and strive for efficiency.
• Integrity – We are authentic and honest. We take our commitments seriously and take accountability for delivery.
Being a key member of our team is fun, challenging, inspiring, engaging and it matters.

About the Organisation
Stroke Association. Rebuilding lives after stroke.
When stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you. That’s because a stroke happens in the brain, the control centre for who we are and what we can do. It happens every five minutes in the UK and changes lives instantly. Recovery is tough, but with the right specialist support and a ton of courage and determination, the brain can adapt.
We believe everyone deserves to live the best life they can after stroke. And it’s a team effort to get there.
We provide specialist support, fund critical research and campaign to make sure people affected by stroke get the very best care and support to rebuild their lives.
We’re working to improve the diversity of our team. Because we know that individuality leads to a richer experience for our people and better support for those affected by stroke.
We strongly encourage people from all backgrounds to apply. And we’re particularly looking to increase the number of applications from those with lived experience of stroke and those from under-represented communities.
Every five minutes, stroke destroys lives. Help us rebuild them and join our team.
In 2019, we developed a bold new corporate strategy so that we can rebuild more lives after stroke and make a bigger difference to people’s lives. To help us deliver our strategy and make a real difference, we are looking to recruit talented people to a number of new roles. If you would like to support stroke survivors to rebuild their lives, we want to hear from you!
