Voluntary Services Manager (maternity cover)
We are looking for an experienced Volunteer manager to cover the maternity leave of the current post holder (expected to commence November 2022, for up to 1 year).

The Voluntary Services Manager ensures that highly engaged and skilled volunteers are placed and supported in roles that support the Charity’s vision to make every moment count, by supporting people with a life-limiting illness, caring for people and their loved ones at the end of life.

This key role leads on the volunteer aspects of our annual People Plan, which supports our new five year strategy. They are also responsible for ensuring that all policies and procedures relating to volunteer management follow best practice and legal requirements.

You will need to be highly personable, well-organised, and confident facilitating a range of meetings and events. You will work within the People and Operations team, with line management responsibility for two colleagues, working collaboratively with our clinical and support teams, with accountability for volunteering across the Charity.

Voluntary Services Colleagues support over 600 volunteers across the charity in over 50 roles. The team is responsible for the recruitment, engagement, and retention of volunteers across the charity’s sites. This post is also responsible for Arthur’s Shed (a large and airy garden studio based in the grounds of the hospice), a community space which delivers workshops led by volunteers and is open to the public.

Occasional out of hours working will be required, due to events.

The successful post holder can work from home, however, work on site will be required for part of the week.

Please note that the salary quoted is based on full time hours and needs to be pro-rata’d for part time posts. We regret that we are unable to negotiate salary above the maximum stated within the advert.

We are committed to inclusivity, respect, fairness, engagement and equality of opportunity for our patients and their families, our staff and trustees, our volunteers and our supporters.

We value the strength that comes with difference and the positive contribution that diversity brings to our community, therefore, candidates with a disability that meet the minimum criteria will be guaranteed an interview. We are also working to increase diversity throughout the organisation and we particularly welcome applications from BAME people who are currently under-represented.

Arthur Rank Hospice Charity is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults who draw on care and support and expects all colleagues and volunteers to share this commitment.
