Our volunteers are our lifeblood at Little Village. They have enabled us to keep our doors open throughout the pandemic. The 629 people who made up our community in 2021 all bring both solidarity and kindness to our work. As the Volunteer and Employability Programme Coordinator, you will develop and innovate our programme, widening access to volunteering and providing new opportunities for marginalised groups to get involved with us. You will lead our Volunteer Administrator team who run day to day volunteer operations, and with them, develop a best-in-class volunteer experience that both supports the organisation’s operational needs, and provides personal growth and development for those volunteering.
We think that this job requires 28-35 hours per week, but we’re open to discussion about flexibility. This is a permanent role and it 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 to apply is 3 May at 9am and all the information on the job and how to apply can be found here.
