Job description

People living with Parkinson's value the services and opportunities Parkinson’s UK provides, delivered by committed and skilled colleagues, volunteers and partner organisations. Following an investment of 1.5 million we have the opportunity to build on the quality and reach of our community services. 

From this investment we’re looking for someone to provide a high quality, local volunteer support service in region. Volunteers are vital to Parkinson’s UK; they provide highly valued support and services through local branches, groups, and cafes. This rewarding role provides the opportunity to work directly with volunteers, together making a positive difference to the lives of people affected by Parkinson’s.

About the role: 

You’ll act as the main point of contact and support for volunteers in local branches, groups, and cafes. As part of an integrated regional team you’ll contribute to shared plans and priorities. 

Working remotely and in person, you’ll provide the highest quality customer care and support volunteers in line with the charity’s governance requirements, as well as our policies and procedures. You’ll provide high quality business support to colleagues to promote volunteering opportunities and bring volunteers together in the local community. 

What you’ll bring:

  • Strong volunteer support skills and an ability to work in a user-focused and inclusive way 
  • Experience of volunteer recruitment, induction and training 
  • Ability to manage and prioritise own workload whilst working collaboratively across a dispersed team of colleagues and volunteers 
  • Proven ability to take a solution focused approach, supporting with queries raised by volunteers 
  • Ability to confidently support group volunteers with budgeting, forecasting and financial reporting 

This is an exciting time for Parkinson’s UK and we would love you to join us!

The successful candidates will be required to 

  • have an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check; if you don’t have a current DBS check, you will be required to apply for one - refusal to do so will result in the offer being withdrawn
  • live in the area covered by the post and be able to travel when needed within the area and occasionally further afield  

Anyone can get Parkinson’s. It’s vital that the people who work for Parkinson’s UK are representative of our diverse community. We actively encourage people from all sections of the community to apply, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, age, disability, sexual orientation, or religion.
