Situation Vacant – Volunteer Coordinator

Are you looking for something to fill up some spare time whilst being part of a team of volunteers dedicated to helping animals in need?

If so, then this could be the role for you!

As a Volunteer Coordinator, you would be the central point of contact for current and potential volunteers and play a vital role in their recruitment and placement. Alongside fellow coordinators, you would help manage and motivate the team of volunteers and ensure that they were placed in the best volunteer role available so that we can help as many animals as possible.

This role is mainly remote, but we are looking for someone local to our branch cover area (Macclesfield, South East Cheshire and Buxton) to potentially attend branch events or meetings.

Volunteer Coordinator responsibilities

In conjunction with the committee, the Volunteer Coordinator will produce, control and monitor a fundraising plan and budget dedicated to raising funds for the branch.

  • Welcoming new volunteers to the branch.
  • Keeping an up-to-date list of volunteering opportunities within the branch.
  • Working with the centre manager, the rehoming coordinator, the fundraising coordinator, and trustees to arrange the recruitment and placement of volunteers.
  • Matching what volunteers would like to do to help the centre with the Branch’s need for volunteer help.
  • Maintain momentum for the branch fundraising programme through the recruitment and retention of volunteers.

What we are looking for in a Volunteer Coordinator

You will need to be able to work with people and have good interpersonal skills. You do not need to be an expert in any area although basic computer skills, commitment, common sense, and the ability to be impartial is vital. Guidance will be provided.

An ongoing commitment, of a minimum of a few hours a month, is preferred.

What we can offer you as a Volunteer Coordinator

  • You will be making a massive difference to the welfare of the animals in your local area.
  • Join a community that will enable you to meet new people and make new friends.
  • Learning new skills through our comprehensive induction and training programme.
  • Enhance your CV by adding your volunteering experience and newly acquired skills.

We hope you are interested in volunteering for our branch! 

Our voluntary roles are subject to an informal interview and trial period. We will ask you to provide contact details for two referees, and depending on the position, you may need to sign an agreement and undergo specific training before starting the role.
