We are looking for a talented, dynamic and professional Volunteer Manager to join our team in Scotland. The right candidate would be someone who can work flexibly and demonstrate an understanding and commitment to our organisational values.

The Volunteer Manager will be responsible for the day-to-day coordination of our brand new “Mind Matters” programme across Clackmannanshire. Mind Matters is an effective, youth-delivered project that improves the mental health, resilience and wellbeing of children and young people aged 11-25. Its success comes from the young people who lead and deliver the project by listening, learning and engaging with their peers on matters that effect their mental health and well-being.

As our Volunteer Manager, you will create a network of Volunteer Champions, aged 16-25 who will be recruited, trained and supported so that they are empowered to lead effective change in their community by:

  • Becoming social activists: designing and delivering peer workshops: developing guides, resources and toolkits for their peers: engaging with their community and effectively signposting to sources of support
  • Establishing a youth-led and focussed mental health campaign, leading and campaigning for children’s mental health awareness across Clackmannanshire.

As a key member of the Volunteering Matters staff team in Scotland, the Volunteer Manager will work alongside colleagues who deliver a wide range of other volunteering programmes across the country. This includes the North Lanarkshire and Clackmannanshire Befriending Projects, Volunteers Supporting Families in Edinburgh, Action Earth and our Full Time Volunteering Programme.

The Volunteer Manager will report directly to the Delivery Leader for Scotland and North East England.

Appointment to this position is subject to an enhanced disclosure check (DBS/PVG). Having a conviction will not necessarily cause a bar to employment.

We will consider job-share opportunities.
