Role

The opportunity

Do you have a background in volunteering management? Have you got previous retail knowledge?

We have an exciting opportunity for a Retail Volunteering Manager to join and support our Retail teams across the British Heart Foundation (BHF).

About the role

As our Retail Volunteering Manager, you’ll work alongside our Regional and Area Managers covering Scotland, the Borders and Cumbria to deliver the BHF’s local and national volunteering strategy, supporting our retail team to recruit, train and retain an unpaid workforce.

Reporting into the Retail Volunteering Operations Manager, you’ll work alongside a dynamic, collaborative team of seven Retail Volunteering Managers, who have accountability for circa 100 shops each and will work closely with colleagues across the BHF, local communities, and external organisations to grow volunteer participation in your patch.

Working arrangements

This is a field based role and will cover Scotland, the Borders and Cumbria. You'll be based at home but will travel extensively across these regions.

We understand that you might need a little help balancing your work and home life. Many of our people work flexibly in many different ways. Please feel free to talk to us about the flexibility you may need; we’d be happy to consider a job share in this role and will be happy to explore what’s possible for you and the role.

About you

As an expert volunteering manager, you’ll be working with and influencing senior stakeholders to deliver credible and innovative solutions that meet KPI's.

With previous experience of training or coaching groups and individuals, you’ll be extremely passionate on all volunteer related topics.

You’ll have excellent organisation and communication skills with the ability to probe, investigate and challenge when needed.

Please note that this role will cover Scotland, the Borders and Cumbria, and therefore there will be a considerable amount of travel and some overnight stays depending on where the successful applicant lives. All applicants must also hold a full driving license.

About us

Every single one of us is vulnerable to the heartbreak caused by heart and circulatory diseases – they are the world’s biggest killers. But the research we fund represents hope. And nothing matters more than finding cures and treatments that give us more time with the people we love.

We have the support of over 22,000 volunteers across the organisation. The volunteering team aim to deliver consistency of approach to volunteering, wherever and however people choose to give their time to us, to ensure they have an experience that is valuable to both the volunteer and the BHF.

We celebrate diversity and make inclusion part of what we do every day. It sits at the heart of our People Experience. Our aim is for all of our colleagues and volunteers to bring their true self to work.

We understand that you might need a little help balancing your work and home life. Many of our people work flexibly in many different ways. Please feel free to talk to us about the flexibility you may need; we’re happy to explore what’s possible for you and the role.
