The Limbless Association provides support, information and connectivity to the limb loss community. We are a long-standing charity based in Chelmsford in Essex, which through our stakeholder networks, extends our reach as an organisation operating and connecting nationally.
We are excited to announce that having successfully been awarded funding from the National Lottery Community Fund, we are recruiting a Service Coordinator to support the Project Manager to develop and improve our Volunteer Visitor project. This user led project builds on the LA’s longstanding peer mentoring service that’s been operating for over 20 years.
You will have at least 2 years’ voluntary sector experience in working with volunteers from recruitment through to training, managing and developing them to ensure they get a great experience.
A good understanding of relevant legislation for volunteering is essential as is a good understanding of the issues and challenges facing volunteers.
We are particularly interested in applicants with experience of delivering and managing a service in a healthcare setting and operating in a user led environment.
Working remotely as part of a small team, you will be an excellent communicator, confident in managing, motivating and developing volunteers, engaging and communicating with key stakeholders and have an understanding and knowledge of how to market the project for maximum growth and participation.
The successful person will have a positive can-do attitude and a real understanding of the limb loss community and sector. This is a really exciting project and we are at a pivotal point in taking it to the next level.
In return, we offer the opportunity to work in a fantastic supportive team, excellent terms and conditions and a commitment to develop all our staff to do the best job they can.
Applications from candidates who have experienced limb loss are particularly welcome.
This is a fixed term position until 31 March 2023.

The closing date is Friday 6 November at midnight.
