North Smethwick Development Trust has been acting as a community hub and local enterprise since 1992. Following a major redevelopment in 2014, NSDT has been providing local people with access to a significantly wider range of community services and activities, resulting in far greater use of the centre. There is also an increased demand for volunteering opportunities. Many people want to gain valuable work experience and see this as a route into employment.
NSDT would like to invite applications for a Volunteering Engagement Coordinator. The new post, funded from the Local Sustainability Fund, is for a fixed 12 month term. The post is offered on a 35 hour week basis: salary £23,750 per annum.
The post holder will be responsible for delivering an effective volunteer strategy, engaging with a range of people and two partner organisations. This is a pilot project where the post holder will ‘hit the ground running’. This will be possible by the work undertaken to date by the Board and partners, to ensure its success. The Engagement Coordinator will implement the volunteer strategy of NSDT, engaging people from the local and surrounding areas who wish to volunteer. He or she will identify volunteer opportunities, recruit volunteers and develop a sustainable volunteer succession strategy, as well as develop and administer social impact reporting.
The post will be based at Brasshouse in North Smethwick with outreach work with partner organisations. Some evening and weekend work will also be required from time to time.
