As a senior member of the Volunteering team, you will champion a quality volunteer experience and lead innovation by inspiring, educating and motivating staff in all aspects of volunteering development.

About CHAS

At CHAS, staff and volunteers work together as one team, focused on the common goal of reaching every family in Scotland who needs our support. We have a 3:1 ratio of volunteers to staff members in CHAS. All CHAS staff will at some point work with or alongside volunteers and will be expected to support volunteers.

Our ambition is to reach every family in Scotland who is living with the heart-breaking prognosis that their child is dying, and offer them our care and support to empower them to make the most of the short time they have together. As a Volunteering Development Manager, you will be instrumental in achieving this vision.
