New Group Organiser

Unpaid role, expenses not paid
Job description

Do you have a passion for organising social groups and meeting new people? Want a flexible voluntary role that allows you to make a difference to peoples’ lives? Then this is for you!

We are looking for volunteers who enjoy meeting and talking to new people and would be willing to start a new group in their area.

What is NWR?

NWR is a membership organisation for women that has been bringing women together for over 60 years for social activities. We provide an opportunity for women to meet to take part in informal discussions and other fun activities to promote friendship, self-education and confidence.

We hear from many members about how much joy NWR membership has brought to their lives; the friendships formed, companionship and wide-ranging conversations held. We want to reach more women to give them this opportunity.

What would I do?

Following the success of the new groups in Hertfordshire, we are recruiting volunteers across the country to set up new NWR groups in their area.

These NWR groups will meet for conversation and informal discussions in a local cafe or pub with a set theme – this theme acts as an icebreaker and ensures that no two meetings feel the same! Themes could cover a wide range of topics and are designed to be light-hearted and an opener for conversations that could lead anywhere (and usually do!).

Your role would be to run the meetings – greeting new and existing members, ensuring that the meetings run smoothly and everyone feels welcome, included and is having fun.

You would be asked to:

  • Identify which town/city to base your group in
  • Consider the types of women who would be interested in your group. What would suit them in terms of the time, location and format of the meetings? How should we communicate to them about the new group? Our staff will be able to provide guidance using their wealth of experience in setting up and running groups.
  • Schedule meetings and identify and arrange a suitable venue.
  • Run the meetings, ensuring that everyone is made to feel welcome and has an opportunity to contribute if they want to. Promote the benefits of NWR membership.

We will:

  • Write and launch a social media and marketing campaign to recruit members for your group.
  • Respond to enquiries and maintain lists of those interested in attending.
  • Offer you ideas and advice in all areas of running the meetings and managing the group.

Further information

This opportunity is open to women living in the UK over the age of 18 who are able to travel to the meetings in the evening.

The amount of time spent on the role will vary from week to week. It is estimated that the role will require 3 hours a month, which includes time spent at your meetings. The hours worked are flexible and can fit in with your existing commitments.

Travel expenses will not be reimbursed.

You will be provided with full training and support from NWR staff and will be part of a friendly and supportive network of volunteers from across the country.

Application Instructions

Please explain in your cover letter why you are interested in the role.
