Volunteering Matters use the unique power of volunteering to bring people together and build stronger, more resilient communities across the UK.
We bring people together to resolve some of society’s most complex issues. From social isolation and loneliness; improving health and wellbeing; building skills, confidence and opportunity and ensuring young people can become change makers in their community, the impact that we make is great.
And we won’t stop until everyone in the UK has the opportunity to thrive.
People-led and impact driven, we’re a national charity that is deeply embedded in local areas across the UK. We operate in five regions: London and the South East; Wales and the West of England; East of England; the Midlands and North West England; and Scotland and North East England. We also have an Employee Volunteering Team with over 25 years’ experience, acting as a broker to provide tailor-made solutions to employers.
This is an exciting time to be joining the team. We’re changing the way we work to meet new ambitions and make sure our impact continues to grow alongside our business
We are looking for a talented, dynamic and professional Volunteer Manager to join our team in Scotland. The right candidate would be someone who can work flexibly and demonstrate an understanding and commitment to our organisational values.
The Volunteer Manager will be responsible for the day-to-day coordination of our brand new Equip Mentoring programme across Clackmannanshire which supports young people aged 15-18.
Some young people, for whatever reason, may not have the skills to ensure they can navigate a route into higher education, into training or the employment market. We believe that all young people are capable of being in higher education, employment or training if they wish to be, but we also know that some need a helping hand to achieve this. This is where Equip Mentoring comes in.
The Volunteer Manager will be responsible for the effective delivery of the mentoring programme. This includes recruiting, training and supporting volunteers who have the skills, knowledge, patience, commitment and life experience to be able to guide and mentor young people towards their chosen goals. As a key member of the Volunteering Matters team in Scotland, the Volunteer Manager will work alongside colleagues who deliver a wide range of volunteering programmes across the country.
The Volunteer Manager will report directly to the Delivery Leader for Scotland and North East England.
