Volunteering Services Manager - North West
Permanent; Homebased
£28,000 - £33,000

Volunteers are central to Macmillan’s ambition to reach and improve the lives of everyone affected by cancer. With your experience of developing and delivering volunteer-led services, you will be committed to providing the best possible volunteering experience for everyone who gives their time to Macmillan, whether volunteering for us directly or with one of our partners.

Your track record in successfully developing and managing projects will include negotiating with key partners to establish, promote and provide services, ensuring best practice is embedded in all stages.

You will have experience of working directly with vulnerable service users which, coupled with your understanding of the wider health and social care agenda, will enable you to meet the complex support and safeguarding needs of both volunteers and service users.

You will also have demonstrable presentation and facilitation skills as well as the confidence, communication and influencing skills to deal effectively with people at all levels in Macmillan, external organisations and within the community. 

Macmillan is committed to actively developing you. Your benefits will include BUPA, life assurance, pension, childcare vouchers, generous leave, and interest free loans for season ticket and gym membership.

The role is home based and involves daily travel around the North West in the normal course of the work and therefore a current valid driver licence is essential. Some evening and out-of-hours work will also be required, and occasional overnight stays.
