With Kenwood open 360 days a year, the site offers a wide variety of opportunities and challenges for those who are looking for the next step in their volunteer management journey.

You will ensure the continuation and quality of the current volunteer programme, alongside expanding the team to ensure future success. A key part of the role is to manage and represent the volunteers at Kenwood, working with site and national teams to develop an effective strategy to maintain a consistently high level of engagement from volunteers.

You'll find it's a workplace like no other - taking you behind the scenes of these extraordinary sites and supporting you to share your ideas, inspire others and make a difference.
