Our dream is that every child in the capital has the essential things they need to thrive, and that everyone can play a part in achieving that goal.
Are you passionate about tackling child poverty and motivated by Little Village’s values of Love, Solidarity, Thriving and Sustainability? Do you believe in our model of bringing families together to help each other? Would you enjoy working in an environment of a small, ambitious and relatively new organisation?
We’ve grown to be one of the largest ‘baby banks’ in the UK, supporting over 25,000 children since we launched in 2016 – including over 6,000 children in 2022 alone.
We couldn’t function without volunteers. They are our lifeblood, and the creation of the Head of Volunteering role is a sign of how important they are to our community. Volunteers come from all backgrounds and across all ages and truly represent the importance of the ‘village’ we were founded on.
We’re looking for a Head of Volunteering; this newly created role will place volunteering at the heart of the management team, reflecting the importance of volunteers at Little Village. You’ll ideally have volunteer leadership and management experience, and bring ideas, experience, networks and connections to Little Village to help us broaden and deepen the support and engagement we offer volunteers in all the roles they play.
We think this role requires 28-35 hours per week, but we’re open to discussions about flexibility. The salary is £45,000 (FTE) gross, and the role will be offered on a permanent contract basis. The successful candidate will require a DBS check.
We are working towards a goal where our team fully reflects that diversity and difference in lived experiences and strongly encourage applications from under-represented groups including: people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds, LGBTQ+ people, people with disabilities, people with lived experience of poverty either personally or through family, experience of the care system, non-graduates and first-in-family graduates. As part of our commitment to fairer recruitment, all applications will be assessed without names and any protected characteristics.
The deadline is 12th January 2023 at 9am and all the information on the role and how to apply is here.
