Volunteer Coordinator - Health
Prospectus is delighted to be partnering with Bowel Cancer UK, a leading charity that is determined to save lives and improve the quality of life of all those affected by bowel cancer in the UK. To achieve their mission, they enable and fund research, provide support and information to patients and their families, educate the public and professionals about the disease, and campaign for early diagnosis and best treatment and care for all. They are currently looking to recruit a Health Promotion Coordinator to coordinate their volunteers and training in their health awareness team. This role is offered on a seven month fixed term contract, 4-5 days per week.
As their Health Promotion Coordinator, you will have the opportunity to have a real impact on the success of their health promotion activities and to help drive vital education and awareness of bowel cancer. Reporting to the Head of Health Promotion & Training, you will be responsible for coordinating the delivery of their volunteer-led awareness programme that is aimed at promoting, developing and delivering outreach to local communities and workplaces in England. Pivotal to the success of the programmes, you will support existing volunteers and work closely with the Senior Health Promotion & Training Officer to recruit and train new volunteers, and coordinate all volunteer-led activity in the region including seeking opportunities for health talks, liaising with venues and organisations, as well as matching volunteers and organising their activity.
Along with a strong commitment to the mission and values of the charity, to be successful you will have proven experience in a health, social care, community development and/or voluntary sector setting, as well as previous practise of recruiting, managing and supporting volunteers. This is a vital role for the charity and therefore the ability to relate and communicate professionally with a wide range of audiences is paramount, as is the capability to show tact and discretion when dealing with sensitive and confidential information. Due to the nature of this role, demonstrable experience of organising events, presentations or meetings with a variety of audiences is essential, as are strong computer and administration skills.
This is an incredible opportunity to join a charity who are unashamedly ambitious and determined to stop this disease for good. Ultimately, you will be saving lives!
