Welcome to Volunteer Centre Dover District

Part-Time Head of Volunteering & External Relations.

(30 Hours) SALARY: £21067 TO £22443 (pro rata), according to qualifications and experience.

Holidays: 20 days and 8 statutory holidays (pro rata) per year.

In the first instance this is a ONE YEAR appointment subject to future funding.

We need a self-motivated and enthusiastic person to fill this new dual post. As Head of Volunteering you will work with Statutory, Voluntary and Community organisations in the Dover district to develop volunteering opportunities, especially for 'hard to reach' groups. By offering them guidance and support, you will ensure that they are well equipped to offer all volunteers a valuable and rewarding experience.

Based at our office in Deal, you will be required to work with an in-house team of volunteers to monitor and answer enquiries, interview volunteers and enter data; and, by liaising with those organisations seeking volunteers, help to place volunteers appropriately. You will be prepared to develop a mentoring scheme to support the 'hard to reach' into volunteering.

As Head of External Relations you will foster good relations with VCS and statutory organisations through representation, and by seeking opportunities to work collaboratively and to maximise funding opportunities. You will need excellent communication skills, be computer literate and be able to work as part of a small team. You will need to travel throughout Dover District and beyond.

Closing date: 4th July - Interviews will be on 10th July.
