It is an exciting time to join our team.

We have introduced new volunteer roles, opened our opportunities up to new audiences, created better methods of reward and recognition, implemented a volunteer management CRM and are working towards achieving the Investing in Volunteers quality standard.
The Volunteering Support Officer is a key new role in the department working with the team at their hospital to ensure that volunteers are well recruited, appointed, inducted, trained, supported and rewarded. This includes working closely with our Youth Volunteering Manager to support the volunteer journey for our recently established youth volunteering programme.
This role will be the first port of call for all enquiries relating to volunteering with us and will play a lead part in the early stages of the volunteer journey, ensuring that all enquiries and applicants receive a friendly and prompt response. As well as new people becoming volunteers, the Volunteering Support Officer will build strong relationships with all of our volunteers and the staff teams we work with, helping ensure we have a visible and helpful presence within the hospitals.
Each Volunteering Support Officer in the team also takes responsibility for a number of cross-site projects which support the development of our programme, ranging from our communications and engagement work, managing our awards programme and helping co-ordinate our events volunteering scheme.
We are looking for individuals who are love working with people and are empathetic to the motivations and characteristics of volunteers. The post holder will be a highly-organised administrator with experience in a fast-paced and collaborative team. The post holder will have excellent technology abilities with experience using databases, online systems and Microsoft Office programs to a highly proficient standard.
