Job Description

Fixed Term Contract 18 months – Volunteering Development Manager – Location: Any UK office

Full time- 35 hours a week

Do you passionately believe in the power of volunteering to change lives? Are you a dynamic and creative designer able to shape an engaging and impactful volunteering experience at the UK’s leading youth charity?

If so, we’re looking for a new team member to join the Volunteering Development team at The Prince’s Trust. Volunteers play a pivotal role in enabling us to help 60,000 young people every year, however we know that we’re still not fully capitalising on the skills, experience and time that volunteers have to offer. We want to design and embed a new way of working which will put volunteering at the forefront of the organisation and unlock our abilities to reach one million young people over the next ten years.

You would work closely with the Head of Volunteering Development, and your team of two line reports, to deliver an ambitious business plan which will lay the foundations for a new structure, tailored volunteering journey and framework. Working with colleagues and volunteers across the UK, you will fail bravely and adapt our new approaches and tools to deliver a sector leading experience for volunteers supporting thousands of lives.

You may have experience in service design, volunteering management frameworks or an excellent and creative problem solver. More importantly, you will be a people person at heart with a willing to try and fail, can do attitude.

The Prince’s Trust believes that every young person deserves the chance to succeed. Yet every year hundreds of thousands of young people across the UK don’t get this chance

We work communities across the UK, helping young people aged 11-30 to succeed, no matter what their background. Our vision is to significantly grow the amount of young people we are equipping with the skills and confidence they need to live, learn and earn.

To help more young people, we simply cannot do this without harnessing the support of a community of volunteers and supporters
