VCH is recruiting a Best Practice Adviser in Volunteer Management to support the hundreds of community groups and charities that are delivering vital services across Hackney.
Over the last year, multiple frontline groups have sprung up to deliver essential supplies and services to people suffering the impact of COVID, while hundreds more charities continue to deliver essential programmes for residents to help people live better lives. Many of these groups are overrun with demand, and may benefit from support and guidance to develop programmes to ensure the effective and efficient recruitment and support of volunteers.
We’re seeking someone with previous experience in supporting community and voluntary groups around issues relating to Best Practice in volunteer management, to support new and existing organisations in making the most of their volunteer programmes. Alongside delivering bespoke, 1 to 1 support to individual groups, you’ll also help oversee the development of brand new good practice resources such as engaging training videos, online webinars, as well as facilitating group training courses and discussion forums.
We actively encourage people from all backgrounds to apply for this opportunity including people with disabilities and support needs as we really want applicants to reflect the diverse demographics of Hackney residents. We are committed to equal opportunities and access for all people.
