Job description

Volunteering Services Coordinator - North England
Fixed Term (12 Months)
£21,500 - £26,000

The role is based in and around the North West, North East and North Cumbria region, and candidates from this locality would be preferred.

About the role
This is a pivotal role in which you will have the opportunity to support the delivery of volunteering roles in our health and social care services so that a wider range of people can get involved in supporting people affected by cancer.

You’ll support the growth of volunteering in these services by delivering volunteer involving opportunities and enabling their sustainability. A key component of the role will be to work collaboratively with your peers and lead volunteers to enable a positive volunteer experience and delivery of effective practical and emotional support interventions to people living with cancer.

About you
It’s particularly important that you demonstrate sound knowledge of policies and procedures relevant to this role and experience of planning. A rounded understanding of volunteering in its widest sense is useful in addition. Most important of all though, your successful track record in supporting a range of volunteer led services working with a vulnerable client group within a health and care setting is needed to achieve our goals.

And what do we offer you in return? We commit to actively developing you and offer benefits including private medical insurance, life assurance, pension, generous leave, and interest free loans for season ticket and gym membership.

Any offers on this role are made subject to a criminal records disclosure check or equivalent.


Please submit your application as soon as possible as we reserve the right to change the closing date of our vacancies.

We aim to encourage a culture where people can be themselves and be valued for their strengths so we seek to attract and employ the best people from the widest talent pool, reflecting the diverse nature of our society.

We will support you throughout the recruitment process with any reasonable adjustments required in accordance with the Equality Act. Please contact the Macmillan HR Team if you require support.
