We’re delighted to be partnering with The Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institute (RABI) to help find four new Regional Volunteer Managers. Each role will look after a specific region – North Wales, North West, Central and South East. Now is a fantastic time to join RABI’s growing team and use your excellent relationship building and people skills to help support farming communities across England and Wales.
Job Title: Regional Volunteer Manager (North Wales/ North West/ Central/ South East)
Reports to: Head of Volunteering
Location: Various and home-based (frequent travel to other areas)
Salary: £29,000 - £35,000, plus car allowance (£2,500)
Hours: 35 Hours
For over 160 years, RABI has worked at the heart of the farming community, providing guidance, financial support, and practical care to farming people of all ages across England and Wales. Farming people face an enormous range of challenges, including unprecedented generational changes to farming policy. RABI has a crucial role to play now and into this uncertain future to support the well-being of this vital community. At the heart of this role is people, so you’ll need an ability to empathise with and understand the issues facing farming communities, but it isn’t essential to have prior personal experience.
As Regional Volunteer Manager, you will be the local ambassador for RABI, promoting awareness of the charity and increasing income and other support across the counties in your patch. You will build relationships with local volunteers, communities, and corporate organisations in the farming industry, and beyond, and identify/establish new opportunities. You’ll be joining the team at an exciting time of growth as the charity looks to increase its reach and impact. There’s a new strategy in place, which puts people at the heart of everything they do, and fantastic training opportunities and support for all staff, as well as a strong focus on welfare and wellbeing.
This is a brilliant opportunity for a creative and driven community volunteer manager to have a significant positive impact on the farming communities in your local area. We’re looking for a natural communicator and people person. You’ll be tenacious and resilient, have strong networking skills and the ability to build rapport quickly. You’ll be a self-starter, resourceful and comfortable making your own decisions.
In return you’ll get all the training and development you need to excel in the role, fantastic opportunities for progression and be part of a dedicated and fun team that work collaboratively and supportively together.
These are busy roles with regular travel, so you will need to have a valid driver’s license and access to a vehicle.
