Groundwork London is looking for a Volunteer Development Coordinator with excellent knowledge in volunteer management to join the Volunteering Kingston team.  

Each year the Groundwork London Volunteering Services team supports thousands of motivated and caring people to find the volunteering opportunity that is right for them. Our team supports prospective volunteers through every stage, from wanting to volunteer, to finding the right opportunity and helping them get started in a volunteer role.  Over the last 2 years, Groundwork London has deployed thousands of volunteers to support COVID 19 volunteering efforts, including vaccine marshalling, food and medicine delivery drivers and befrienders.  Our teams have also worked with small local charities and organisations to make sure that they can find and support the volunteers they need to do the vital work that they do.  As one volunteer we supported said “having the opportunity to do something I usually wouldn’t have done on my own. It was completely different to my day job and the benefits are immediately visible for the local community and I to enjoy.” 

Groundwork London has delivered the Volunteering Kingston project since April 2018.  The project focuses on volunteer coordination, helping volunteers to find and start volunteering and educating volunteer-involving organisations in quality volunteer management.  

The Volunteer Development Coordinator will join an established team who collectively works to inspire and place volunteers into a wide range of volunteering roles in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames. The post-holder will focus on building the capacity of local voluntary and community organisations through building quality volunteer management practices and creating volunteering roles that inspire prospective volunteers to apply. You will help develop an annual training and networking programme for Kingston Borough volunteer-involving organisations and provide tailored 1-2-1 support where required.  

The post-holder will work in close collaboration with the Volunteering Project Manager to shape, plan and deliver the project activity. The post will predominately be based in Kingston Borough, working from varied locations and will involve a variety of tasks and meetings.  

Please contact us if you have: 

  •  Experience working with the voluntary community and/or advice & guidance/education sector. 
  •  Experience or aptitude to manage and deliver training courses. 
  •  Excellent teamwork skills. 
  •  Confident in using CRM systems and working with and analysing data. 
  •  Ability to manage a changeable work plan and priorities.
