Carers Trust is the largest UK wide charity for the nation’s 7 million unpaid carers. Together with our Network Partners, we provide support, information, advice and services for children, young people and adults caring, unpaid, for a family member or friend. The number of carers is a growing issue, with 3 in 5 of us likely to become a carer at some point in our lifetime. Carers save the UK economy over £132bn every year and act as a main support to our stretched health and social care systems.
We are currently looking for a Volunteer Coordinator to join our Corporate Fundraising Team.
The successful candidate will coordinate and manage employee volunteering as part of a new exciting partnership with Quilter Plc. The 3 year partnership has ambitious aims to raise £1.5 million over three years in order to fund an innovative programme to support young adult carers aged 16-25, with a focus on positive mental health and wellbeing outcomes.
This role is responsible for managing the Quilter employee volunteer programme, enabling some of their 4,000+ employees to undertake volunteering activities to benefit young adult carers and carers services. This role is crucial in getting employees to engage with the partnership and reach its ambitious fundraising targets.
While sitting within the corporate fundraising team, this role will work closely with all parts of the organisation to identify and develop suitable volunteering opportunities.
The successful candidate will have excellent organisational skills with great attention to detail and strong communication skills. They will be confident in working with internal and external stakeholders and able to come up with innovative ideas and solutions to engage supporters.
Further details of the role are contained in the job description.
This is a great opportunity for someone interested in developing their career in volunteer management and corporate engagement, and in joining a vibrant organisation and very successful team.
