About us

In every corner of Britain, Royal Voluntary Service mobilises volunteers to support those in need, in hospital and in the community.

Through the gift of voluntary service, our volunteers provide much-needed support for over-stretched public services. They work at scale in the NHS, freeing up staff to dedicate more time to patient care, and within communities to give practical help and support to people when they need it.

Our staff are some of the most passionate and dedicated people in the country, who contribute directly to making society better connected, more inclusive and a place where everyone can thrive.

We’re looking for three part-time Activity Co-ordinators to join us in Leicester City, South Birmingham or West Sussex on a fixed term contract until December 2022.

The Role

As an Activity Co-ordinator, you will support the delivery of our First Time for Everything programme in Leicester City, South Birmingham or West Sussex.

The First Time for Everything programme aims to give older people the chance to try something new locally. Activities include anything from exercise classes and camera skills lessons to paddleboarding and pottery sessions.

You will create, establish and deliver a network of activity sessions for older people in your area, as well as creating volunteering opportunities for people in the community.

Reporting to the Project Manager, you will:

- Use your creativity to develop and deliver a local area plan
- Build relationships with volunteers, local groups and organisations
- Ensure that all activities are delivered in a safe and compliant manner
- Support existing community development and engagement work in the community
- Manage the local delivery budget and expenditure
- Recommend ways to improve our existing processes

Interested? To be considered, you will need:

- Experience of delivering community activities in a safe and compliant manner
- Previous experience of working with volunteers
- A full, valid driving licence

Why you should join our team

We’re proud to be in the top 25 not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK, based on ratings from Indeed. As a valued employee at Royal Voluntary Service, you will benefit from the following:

- An hourly rate of £ per hour
- An employee assistance helpline
- Potential flexible working
- A great pension scheme
- 25 days’ holiday per annum (pro rata) plus paid statutory Bank Holidays

This is a part-time role working 10 hours per week on a fixed term contract until December 2022. Flexibility around when these hours are worked is required to support the needs of the project.

Here at Royal Voluntary Service, we're committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. We want to be a charity that's representative of the communities we serve, which is why we strive for diversity of age, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity and perspective.

Other organisations may call this role Community Support Co-ordinator, Community Events Co-ordinator, Volunteer Co-ordinator, or Events Assistant.
