Job description

Volunteering Services Coordinator
Fixed Term until January 2022
Home Based

£26,500 per annum

This is a pivotal role in which you will have the opportunity to support the delivery of volunteering roles in our emotional and practical support 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.

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.

Secondment Opportunity. This vacancy may be suitable as a secondment for internal applicants. Please discuss your application for this role with your line manager to check how this would work. You should also refer to the secondment policy for more information


Please submit your application as soon as possible as we reserve the right to change the closing date of our vacancies. The interview date will be 12th August 2021.

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 want to make our recruitment processes accessible to everyone, so if there is any way that we can support you to be the best you can be, please contact the Macmillan HR Team.
