Team Leader - Perth

  • VO90336
  • Home-based volunteering


Description

Our Group Coordinators use their local knowledge and leadership skills to organise and oversee their local group's volunteer team.
What will you be doing?

Across the UK, over 300 local groups play a vital part in supporting new and expectant parents in their local areas. They provide sense of belonging, unity and friendship. And they deliver services and support for their local community.

We are looking to recruit a Group Coordinator for our Perth group. As our local Group Coordinator you’ll take the lead in making sure your local group works as effectively as possible. You’ll recruit, induct and support other group volunteers to make sure your group’s activities meet the needs of your local NCT community.

In this role you’ll be able to develop your leadership, management, communication, organisation and motivation skills.

Time Commitment

We estimate this role will need around 2-3 hours a week. Our roles are flexible and aim to fit around you. Time commitments for this role may vary depending on your activities. This is an ongoing role.

About you

You’ll have an interest in NCT and the work that we do, as well as the enthusiasm to represent both us and our values locally. You will understand the needs of new and expectant parents in your area and be sympathetic to the needs and motivations of volunteers. You’ll be confident using Microsoft Office, the internet and email. You’ll be able to apply disability, equality and inclusion practices and understand and apply our risk management system. Ideally you’ll understand the local area and organisations that provide local services.

You will be reliable and easy to contact and you need to live in or near the Kincardine area to carry out this role.

What's in it for the volunteer?
This is a great opportunity to gain experience within a large charity and develop your existing skills and learn new ones. We need you to get involved and help make positive changes to the lives of new and expectant parents.
