Volunteer Edinburgh promotes and develops volunteering in Edinburgh through a range of projects, and has a key leadership role in making Edinburgh a city in which volunteering in all its forms can flourish and thrive.
Volunteer Edinburgh is looking for a creative and flexible individual to develop volunteering and pre-volunteering activities that support the rehabilitation and progression of service users who have complex mental health needs. With excellent organisational and communication skills, you will work independently and with key partners to promote the personal and community benefits of volunteering.
Volunteer Edinburgh is committed to involving people of all ages and backgrounds in volunteering. The Volunteer Hub within the Royal Edinburgh Hospital was established in September 2008 and is a unique service which engages in-patients and members of the public in high quality volunteering opportunities throughout the hospital and in the community. The service supports the recovery and progression of patients, most of whom have complex and enduring mental health problems, as well as other health issues and support needs.
We are looking for a friendly, open and people-focused individual. You should have volunteer management experience and the ability to communicate with a diverse range of individuals.
