Do you believe volunteers are a key asset of the charity sector? Do you want to support them to make a difference in their communities? And do you want to oversee the services that enable that difference and support isolated and vulnerable local residents?
If so, join Age UK Lewisham and Southwark as our Volunteer-Led Services Manager!
This rewarding role is all about providing exciting opportunities for volunteers to do meaningful work, connecting older, isolated residents and helping them to get back into their communities. Our projects include Befriending, Drop-Ins, and Community Transport. Our Befriending project boasts approximately 500 volunteers and 800 beneficiaries, and our 50 Community Transport Volunteers deliver around 2000 return journeys per year.
The successful applicant would grow these services, with a focus on sustainability, and offer a more varied range of volunteering opportunities.
You'd also support with the engagement of volunteers across our whole charity through events like recruitment campaigns and trainings, while also ensuring the quality of not only volunteer work but also the support they receive from us.
The role is based in Lewisham, London with the option to work from home where possible. We also offer further flexible working options, an Employee Assistance Programme and Cycle and Tech schemes.
We're looking for positive thinkers with ideas of how to help others. You'll need to be an exceptional communicator, a keen problem solver and, most importantly, friendly, polite and patient.
If this sounds like you, we want to hear from you!
