Volunteering Manager x3 - Various London Hospitals
London
 
About Us
 
We're Imperial Health Charity, an organisation that helps our hospitals do more through grants, arts, volunteering and fundraising. We support the five hospitals of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust: Charing Cross, Hammersmith, Queen Charlotte’s & Chelsea, St Mary’s and the Western Eye.
 
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, we successfully managed an emergency response at our hospitals, engaging over 580 crisis response volunteers (most of whom we recruited during the pandemic).
 
Since then, and as the pandemic has calmed and then intensified again, we have been working to restart and rebuild our volunteering programme to align with new ways of working and the new realities of our health service.
 
As such, we’re looking for three Volunteering Managers to join our team and deliver our volunteering strategy across our hospital sites: Charing Cross, Hammersmith and Queen Charlotte’s & Chelsea, St Mary’s and the Western Eye.
 
Your Benefits
 
- Salary of £40,087 - £44,306, starting on £40,087
- 25 days’ holiday (increasing with service) plus Bank Holidays
- An extra day’s holiday to be taken one week either side of your birthday
- Access to gym discounts
- Support towards healthcare costs, including eye tests and dental, and support with mental health through counselling
- Interest-free season ticket loan
- Pension (with employer contributions of 10%)
- Life insurance
- Enhanced maternity, paternity and adoption leave, above statutory requirements
- Sick and compassionate leave above statutory requirements
- High street and online discounts through a Blue Light Card
 
This is a fantastic opportunity to make a real, positive impact on our volunteering programme and build excellent, long-lasting links with our local communities and support the work of our NHS Trust.
 
We’re keen to take our volunteering programme to the next level and you will play a key role in our success moving forward joining a dedicated team committed to delivering fantastic care, support and opportunities.

You’ll manage the recruitment, selection and induction of volunteers, ensuring that they support the needs of our NHS Trust and have a great volunteering experience.
 
You’ll champion our organisation with NHS staff, patients and members of the public and build strong relationships within the hospital and across the local community, promoting our volunteering opportunities.
 
In addition, you’ll provide effective line management to the Volunteering Officer and design new volunteer roles, including placements suitable for 16-21 year olds.
