Role

Fife Cultural Trust (ONFife) has partnered with Macmillan Cancer Support to provide support for people affected by cancer in our local communities, so we are looking for an outgoing, experienced Volunteer Coordinator to join a small team to deliver an exciting new project based in Kirkcaldy, Fife.

We are launching Macmillan Cancer Information and Support points in four libraries in Fife to ensure people affected by cancer can access high quality information and support in our local communities.

Volunteer-led, drop-in support will be at the heart of this project, so you will be responsible for recruiting, training, coordinating, supporting and inspiring a vital team of volunteers to provide information and a listening ear to support to people affected by cancer.

You will work closely with the Macmillan Project Officer to plan, promote, implement and evaluate the project to meet Fife Cultural Trust and Macmillan Cancer Support quality standards and to ensure long term sustainability of this support for people affected by cancer in Fife.

If you are an enthusiastic, confident, experienced volunteer coordinator with an understanding of the impact volunteers can have and a passion for building relationships and inspiring others, then we would love to hear from you!

The postholder is required to travel throughout Fife. This post requires the successful candidate to undergo a PVG check.

What we offer

If this sounds like we’re expecting a lot, you’re right — we are! Because the people of Fife deserve the best. But your best will be rewarded. We offer the successful candidate a competitive salary, contributory Local Government Pension Scheme, employee discounts, generous annual leave and flexible working.
