Job description

Location: Flexible within England & Wales

Department: Volunteering

Interview date: 28th July 2022

Citizens Advice offers confidential advice online, over the phone, and in person, for free. Through our national network of charities, we give people the knowledge and the confidence they need to find their way forward – whoever they are, and whatever their problem.

Do you want to work for an organisation that makes a difference, every single day, to people from all walks of life? The people that turn to Citizens Advice need help overcoming an obstacle in their lives – from debt to evictions to trouble at work – and you can be key to them getting the support they need in the quickest, easiest, and most effective way.

We particularly welcome applications from disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates as BAME and disabled people are currently under-represented throughout Citizens Advice. We are a member of the race equality campaign at Business in the Community, the Prince’s responsible business network and are committed to improving employment opportunities for ethnic minorities across the UK. We also welcome applications from LGB and Trans and non binary candidates.

We have made a positive commitment to employing disabled people and guarantee to interview all disabled candidates who meet the minimum essential criteria for the role as set out in role profiles.

We’re looking for a Corporate Volunteering Officer to support the development and delivery of our corporate volunteering offer across Citizens Advice and local Citizens Advice. You will champion and support corporate volunteering in the Citizens Advice service and raise its profile across the organisation. You will lead on the successful delivery of our existing corporate volunteering programmes, ensuring all targets are met and relevant stakeholders engaged. Working closely with the Corporate partnerships team, you will play a key role in growing our portfolio of corporate volunteering partnerships, collecting impact data that informs our future approach and supporting the research and development of new partnership proposals.

This is an exciting role in a successful, friendly and supportive team. 

Our commitment to flexible working extends to where we work. As Covid restrictions ease, Citizens Advice are moving towards a permanent mix of office and home based working which will give much more choice to staff, while still maintaining the best of collaborative working.

The National Citizens Advice Operates from offices in England and Wales, with 4 regional offices based in Cardiff, London, Birmingham and Leeds, therefore all successful applicants must be based within England or Wales. 

Please be aware that Citizens Advice is not a sponsoring organisation. Therefore the successful applicant must already possess the right to work in the UK or be able to secure the right to work in the UK independently.

Citizens Advice seeks to redeploy staff who are at risk or under notice of redundancy where they satisfactorily demonstrate that they meet the requirements of the role at interview. Candidates who are formally at risk or under notice of redundancy will take priority over other candidates for interview. If you have been confirmed as at risk or under notice of redundancy please ensure you indicate this in the at-risk box in your application.

This vacancy closes at 23.59 on the closing date.
