Role

Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland (CHSS) is an independent Scottish charity, whose mission is to be the community of support, kindness and challenge where people can help each other, can secure the expert help they need, and collectively advocate for the care that matters to them. We offer vital advice, support and information to those affected so that they can live the lives they want to live and influence public policy to ensure that people get the services that they need. Our renewed ambition is to become Scotland’s leading organisation for person-centred, user-led community support for people with our health conditions.

CHSS is fortunate to have the support of 1,500 volunteers and we are looking to double this number of volunteers to help us reach more people living with our conditions across Scotland.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of CHSS’s new volunteering and engagement team.

In addition, you should have considerable experience of working with and supervising volunteers, have good organisational and communication skills and have experience of managing volunteer recruitment campaigns. A current driving licence and the use of a car for work are essential. These posts will be subject to member of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups Scheme.
