Volunteer Administration Manager
Saron, Carmarthenshire

Skanda Vale Hospice is seeking a Volunteer Administration Manager. This is a rare opportunity to be a part, not just of a beautiful hospice project, but a genuinely innovative community care movement.

Founded by Skanda Vale multi-faith monastery, Skanda Vale Hospice is the first and only inpatient hospice in the UK to be run by professional volunteers.

The hospice offers truly bespoke, whole-person care to meet the personal, emotional, practical, physical and spiritual needs of adults with life-limiting illnesses.

Without a team of good administrators, the daily activities of the Hospice grind to a halt. Making sure our admin team recognises the direct impact they have on our ability to deliver the Hospice mission is crucial. You’re here to keep morale and motivation running high, so collectively we can transform lives for the better.

We have teams of volunteer administrators in every department of the Hospice; from clinical admin, to finance, communications, marketing, operations and care. Some will work on-site at the hospice, some work remotely from home. As the team leader, you’ll need fantastic people skills to create a sense of shared purpose, determination and resolve to inspire and motivate your team across dispersed locations.

There’s no doubt that this is an important, worthwhile and satisfying role. Here are some of the ways your work will change lives:

- Your team will enable patients to access our services, bringing relief and support to people during the most challenging times of their lives
- Your team will enjoy the creative challenge of finding new and efficient ways to help us recruit, train and develop new volunteers, creating positive experiences and a strong sense of purpose amongst our team
- Your team will give Hospice management reliable and accurate data, giving them the clear insights they need to make sound strategic decisions to guide and improve our work

The Volunteer Administration Manager can start straight away. Initially, you can work remotely to help redesign our processes, in time for an anticipated relaunch later this Spring. After the pandemic, a certain amount of physical presence at the hospice will also be important.

No doubt, this will be a life-changing opportunity for the right person.

The hospice site at Saron is an easy commute from Carmarthen and close to the Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire borders. To find out more about becoming our Volunteer Administration Manager, please click the apply button.

Other organisations may call this role Administration Manager, Admin Team Leader, Administration Supervisor, Clinical Administration Manager, Hospice Administration Manager, Charity Administration Manager, Clerical Manager, Officer Manager, or Admin Manager.

Webrecruit and Skanda Vale Hospice value diversity and are strongly committed to inclusion and equal opportunities for all. So, if you’re looking for your next challenge as a Volunteer Administration Manager, we look forward to hearing from you.

This vacancy is being advertised by Webrecruit. The services advertised by Webrecruit are those of an Employment Agency.


We are an independent hospice founded in 1993 by monks and nuns from Skanda Vale multi-faith monastery. One unique feature of our hospice is that we have very few paid staff – our team is made up, almost entirely, of highly skilled volunteers.
