Job description

The Volunteer Coordinator role is a new position at Katherine Low Settlement which has been formed as a key component of Big Local SW11's (BLSW11) three year strategy. 

Volunteering has been widely evidenced to provide a wide range of benefits improving confidence, health, sense of purpose, community belonging, expanding social networks, gaining skills and moving towards employment. This new project is about enabling, empowering and mobilising local residents to volunteer and get more involved with the local community here in Battersea.

There are 55+ local charities and community organisation’s working in Battersea. They depend on volunteers to help provide their services and govern their organisations. To meet the growing demand for these services and make the biggest difference we can with our resources, the Alliance aims to expand the number of people volunteering across Battersea with the support of a new post of Volunteer Co-ordinator. 

Key Objectives of the Role

  • Develop and expand volunteering engagement across Battersea to assist in the pursuit of the BLSW11 Alliance’s vision, mission, values and objectives. 
  • Develop and implement yearly volunteering delivery plans with the Alliance; review, monitor and report on progress.
  • Ensure a consistent and high standard of volunteering engagement and support across Battersea.  
  • Ensure effective knowledge collection and feedback systems are in place to monitor the quality and effectiveness of volunteer engagement in Battersea.  

Note: The Alliance has been formed by the Big Local SW11 (which is an independent, resident-led group that has been awarded £1m over 10 years to invest in projects that improve opportunities for local people and strengthen our community) to help deliver its own strategy of building a stronger, more self-reliant Battersea.
