About Us

Royal Voluntary Service is an innovative charity that focuses on inspiring people to give the gift of voluntary service to support the NHS and older people at home and in the community. We are now looking for a Volunteer Co-ordinator to join our team on a part time basis for a contract until the 31st January 2021.

You’ll discover that we make a difference every day and support those who need us the most. Utilising the generous gift of time that our volunteers donate, we strive to improve the lives of older people and particularly those who have become isolated or are in, or are just returning home from, hospital.

The Role

As a Volunteer Co-ordinator, you will support the delivery of our Supporting Your Recovery service to older residents of the Sandwell area who are leaving hospital or have recently been discharged.

The service may support people with nutrition and hydration information and chair-based exercises to support a successful discharge and also supports engagement with patients’ communities and activities of interest. The service also supports those who have experienced a health crisis to enable them to live independently at home.

The overall aim of the service is to reduce recovery times and readmissions. Volunteers who deliver the service will also seek to impact upon feelings of loneliness and isolation that may be felt after prolonged stays in hospital.

Some of your duties will involve:

- Supporting the recruitment and co-ordination of volunteers and their activities
- Meeting with older people in their homes and identifying how we can best support them
- Networking and building partnerships in the Sandwell area
- Ensuring we comply with key statutory standards
- Completing a range of admin tasks

About You

Interested? To be considered as a Volunteer Co-ordinator, you will need:

- Relevant experience of working with volunteers and supporting and motivating them on a daily basis 
- Excellent interpersonal and communication skills 
- A great eye for detail 

This is a part time role, working 26.5 hours per week, Monday - Thursday 9.30am – 3pm and Fridays 9.30am – 2pm.

The closing date for applications is the 6th December 2019 with interviews scheduled for the 17th December 2019 in Kings Heath, Birmingham.
