Volunteer Coordinator

Thank you for your interest in working for the Oak Tree Animals’ Charity.

Volunteer Coordinator

Oak Tree Animals have been caring for animals in Cumbria for over 100 years and whilst the care and dedication we show to animals has never changed the way we deliver this care has. Volunteers are a central part of how we are structured and they support us in all areas from animal care to office administration to ground maintenance to tea room to charity shop.

They give a most precious gift………..time.

To ensure that we are able to deploy, train and utilise our volunteers effectively we are seeking a Volunteer Co-ordinator. The successful candidate will ideally be from a charitable background used to recruiting volunteers and dealing with individuals from a variety of backgrounds.

Communications, both verbal and via IT are central to building and maintaining an effective volunteer network as is the self-confidence to present to diverse organisations to promote the Charity. We welcome applications from individuals who can demonstrate the ability to use initiative to solve problems and who have the self-confidence to work across all functions within the Charity and who can sell their proposals to us. A track record of delivering projects is an advantage.     

You should possess a “can do” mind set where challenges are relished and problems exist to be solved. Your personality should encourage others to meet a challenge and want to become involved. This is a chance to make a difference.

The post is offered at a competitive salary with paid holidays, subsidised meals etc on a weekly total of 26 hours. The days and working pattern will be agreed at interview. However, since we operate on a seven day basis some weekends will be necessary to support our Fundraising Team at events and, of course, to recruit volunteers.  

Please apply by sending your application form and a covering letter to hr@oaktreeanimals.org.uk

The closing date is 2nd February,2020.
