Prospectus is pleased to be collaborating with Greenhouse Sports, a London based charity who believe that every child deserves a fair chance to succeed. They develop life skills for young people in London's most disadvantaged communities and have recently acquired a very fine disused church in Marylebone. They are currently in the process of refurbishment with the vision to create a prestigious sports facility for local neighbourhoods and wider London communities.

Following the recent successful recruitment of the Centre Director, they are now looking for an energetic and proactive Community Engagement & Volunteer Manager who will engage the local community, building and supporting a pool of volunteers who will support operations across the charity, starting with the Centre. Contributing to the impact that the Centre will have on communities in London, you will be responsible for building sustainable relationships with internal and external stakeholders including community organisations, local schools, businesses and delivery partners as well as working with the local community to encourage and support volunteering opportunities.

To be considered, you will possess significant experience of recruiting, training and managing a team of volunteers as well as the ability to engage with individuals and local community groups to promote opportunities available to them. In order to endorse the importance of multi-agency working, you will possess a strong capability to engage and manage stakeholder relationships as well as a thorough understanding of and commitment to equality and inclusion, Health & Safety and the safeguarding of children and adults.

This is an incredible opportunity to be part of a start-up project geared towards maximising opportunities available for local neighbourhoods.
