We are Guide Dogs and we’re here to help people with sight loss live the life they choose. Our ambition is a future where every person with sight loss has the confidence and support they need to live their lives to the full.
We don’t just provide life-changing guide dogs, we also provide advice, skills, emotional and practical support for people and families living with sight loss to help them live actively, independently and well.
What does the role involve?
In the role of Speaker Coordinator, you'll be responsible for organising our Speaker volunteers to go out and give talks to schools, businesses, community groups and a range of events so they can spread the word about Guide Dogs!
This role would be ideal for anyone who likes chatting to new people and either has experience or wants to gain experience in admin. We're always looking for new volunteer to join our team so if you've never volunteered before then don't worry! We provide full training and support for all of our roles.
This role is home based and the hours required are flexible. Applicants would require their own computer for the role and may be required to travel around their local area from time to time.
- Coordinating Speaker volunteers in your local area
- Liaising with our Speakers, local schools and community groups to book sessions and determining the type of session (length, content and activities) that they would be interested in
- Signposting schools and groups to fundraising opportunities – particularly Sponsor a Puppy and Name a Puppy, Go Walkies, their school versions and our school’s resources web pages
- Gathering feedback on the speaker led session and passing on possible leads to the Community Fundraiser and local fundraising branch
