Regional Volunteering Lead

Job Description

This is a high-profile and exciting role which is responsible for leading the delivery of a change management programme to develop a regional governance and volunteer support structure.  The post-holder will devise and implement clear strategies for change within the region, develop a clear implementation plan to support the new governance structure and be responsible for engaging with existing Sands volunteers and recruiting new ones, particularly those from under-represented groups.

You will have excellent people management and leadership skills, with the ability to support and motivate others to engage with projects to ensure positive outcomes.  Additionally, you will have proven ability in establishing high level, productive relationships with senior external stakeholders and organisations.  A very high standard of verbal and written communication skills is therefore essential.  Sands is committed to ensuring that diversity is central to all of our work, and you will need to ensure that the voice of bereaved parents is represented accordingly.

With experience of delivering, managing and evaluating projects and events including facilitation of meetings and workshops, you will be able to develop high quality resources which meet the needs of stakeholders including volunteering framework and advisory group documents.

You will need to have experience of line management, and have good time-management and organisational skills.

Please note that this is a fixed-term role for 2 years, working 28 hours per week.

The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
