We are seeking a very special Volunteer Manager who will coordinate and lead our volunteer services, overseeing the associated recruitment, support, training, management, and retention processes. You will ensure we are delivering a high-quality, consistent, and enjoyable service whilst maintaining a rewarding and fulfilling relationship with those who join our volunteer journey in an engaging, effective, and efficient way.

Wheels For All is committed to achieving equity for all current and prospective employees. We do not condone discrimination on the basis of age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, gender identity, or marriage and civil partnership.
We believe that an inclusive workplace, where people of different backgrounds work together, ensures better outcomes for all employees and the organisation as a whole. We therefore strongly encourage suitably experienced people from a wide range of backgrounds to apply.

Key skills needed for this exciting role: You will be a strong communicator with excellent and adaptable interpersonal skills in person, virtually, and in typed context. You will have significant experience of volunteer management (ideally on a large scale) and leading successful recruitment drives and delivery of high-quality volunteer support, training and management.
A key element of this role will include working with the team to capture & monitor the impact of our volunteer services. You will work with our HQ and Regional Staff to deliver the volunteer strategy for 2022/23 which encompasses coordination and support of existing volunteers, recruitment and succession planning, and be involved in the delivery of improved two way communications from HQ and within the regions.
You should be competent on all Microsoft software, with a high level of accuracy and attention to detail when processing data ensuring compliance with the GDPR at all times.
Experience of managing databases, writing e-newsletters, managing mailing lists, coordinating, and facilitating online meetings (with help from our team) is desirable. Training will be provided for the right candidate. In return we offer a competitive salary with 20 days annual leave (plus bank holidays) and pension.

You don’t need to be a cyclist to apply for this role, but you do need to share our passion to deliver our services and enjoy making a difference to people’s lives.
If this sounds like you then please request an application pack to recruiting@wheelsforall.org.uk. Closing date for applications: 25th August with interviews being held week commencing 29th August 2022.
