Salary - £24,480
Hours – Full time – 37.5 hours
Closing Date – 7th December 2018 
Location – Based at Warwick Myton Hospice but with regular travel to all of our sites across Coventry & Warwickshire

The Myton Hospices are committed to the delivery of high quality palliative care and enabling those with life limiting illnesses to live well. Supporting us with this is a team of over 1,000 volunteers who work within all areas of Myton, from direct patient contact roles, roles that help to support the smooth day-to-day running of our hospices, to roles based within retail and fundraising.

Our Volunteering Development Team is going through a period of expansion, and an exciting opportunity has arisen for a full time experienced Volunteering Development Officer to join our team.

At Myton we recognise the potential to expand our volunteer team to help strengthen and enhance the work that we do. The role will involve supporting line managers in recruiting, developing, engaging and retaining volunteers within their team to ensure a positive volunteering experience.

Ideal applicants will have had previous experience of the recruitment, management and support of volunteers, with a working knowledge of volunteering best practice. The successful candidate will have demonstrable experience of working alongside line managers to support them to engage fully with their volunteer resource. We are seeking motivated, enthusiastic, volunteer management professionals, who have excellent communication skills and the ability to build relationships with a wide range of people.

You will be based at our Warwick Hospice, but regular travel will be required to our other Hospice and retail sites; therefore applicants must have a full driving licence and be a car owner.

Informal visits and conversations about the role are encouraged and welcomed. For more information please contact Charlotte Witteridge, Head of Volunteering Development on 01926 492 518 or email Charlotte.Witteridge@mytonhospice.org
