We are currently looking to recruit a motivated and enthusiastic person to join our team as a Volunteer Co-ordinator. This post is offered on a 14 hours per week permanent contract basis.

 

The post holder will be employed by George House Trust but will work as part of the Passionate about Sexual Health (PaSH) Partnership.

 

The PaSH Partnership comprises George House Trust, BHA for Equality and LGBT Foundation, together delivering Greater Manchester’s Sexual Health Improvement Programme.

 

We’re looking for an experienced Volunteer Co-ordinator to lead on the involvement of volunteers for George House Trust’s work, as part of the PaSH Partnership. You’ll need to have a good understanding of best practice in volunteer management and be experienced in recruiting volunteers, planning and delivering training, and supervising and supporting volunteers. The PaSH Partnership offers new and exciting opportunities for joint working around volunteer recruitment, training and co-ordination, so we’re looking for someone who is confident about working in partnership with other agencies.

 

Volunteers have been at the heart of George House Trust for over 30 years - playing a vital role in service delivery, awareness raising, fundraising and supporting new projects and developments. Our volunteer community includes significant representation from the communities most affected by HIV, and over half of our volunteers are themselves living with HIV. We have held the Investing in Volunteers Quality Standard since 2007. There is a well-established and positive culture of volunteering at George House Trust and volunteers themselves report a high level of satisfaction with their experience.
