Job description

This is a really exciting time to join Girlguiding. With nearly half a million members we are the largest charity dedicated to girls and young women in the UK, and one of the largest and leading youth charities. We are on a mission to amplify the voices of girls and young women, so they can champion change in their own lives and the wider world; to build strong partnerships that can increase our reach and impact; and to increase the support we offer our 100,000 amazing adult volunteers who deliver incredible experiences to young people across the UK every week. We have recently agreed our 2020+ strategy and begun a process of significant change: transforming the organisation so it can meet the challenges of the future by putting young people and volunteers at the heart of our organisation.

The Volunteer Learning and Development team is responsible for ensuring the high-quality learning provision for our 100,000 + volunteers. We work in partnership with volunteers and subject matter experts to design and deliver content, oversee the content design and management of internal qualifications and support hundreds of local volunteer trainers to design and deliver their own content. As well as compliance training, we support volunteers on a broad range of topics from virtual guiding, outdoor and adventure, international experiences and leadership.

This is an exciting time to join the team as we implement a new digital learning platform in 2021 and increase our digital offer to volunteers expanding our eLearning and webinar offer. This role will be responsible for the coordination of a wide diversity of projects which fall under the remit of Volunteer Learning & Development which includes content and learning design, as well as event planning, community engagement and project management learning related projects. You will be working with volunteers and relevant teams to ensure the effective planning, implementation and evaluation of projects, so that Girlguiding continues to deliver high quality learning experiences to develop inspirational volunteers who provide excellent Girlguiding experience to girls and young women across the UK.

Girlguiding values the differences that a diverse workforce brings and is committed to inclusivity, and to employing and supporting a diverse workforce. Girlguiding is proud to be part of the Stonewall Diversity Champions programme, a member of the Business Disability Forum, and a member of Time to Change. While Girlguiding’s young members may be women only, our staff team is mixed gender. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds.

We are committed to supporting our staff to achieve a good work-life balance and offer flexible working options wherever we reasonably can. Girlguiding is a COVID secure employer, providing support for all employees during the current pandemic. All staff are required to carry out our online health and safety training and complete a DSE risk assessment to ensure we can provide the support you require.

We ask that you submit your CV and supporting information as soon as possible as we reserve the right to close vacancies at any time, when we have received sufficient applications. 

It is important that you submit all of the above documents with your CV, including the declaration form, supporting statement and diversity questionnaire. We will consider only those applications that include these completed documents.
