About the organisation:

Vision Norfolk is the local sight loss charity for Norfolk. Formerly known as Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind (NNAB), we have been supporting blind and vision impaired people to live independent and fulfilled lives for over 218 years.

It is estimated that there are more than 38,000 people living with some degree of sight loss in Norfolk today, with two thirds of the working age population not in employment, and 3 out of 4 vision impaired people living in poverty or on its margins. These numbers are expected to double by 2050, so we know our work is needed now more than ever.

To meet these needs, we are seeking a dynamic and creative individual who will be able to join and lead our volunteer team, with the ability to evolve our services and ensure that we are able to support the greatest number of vision impaired people across Norfolk.

We are currently developing a new 5 year strategy to steer the organisation and which will require us to deliver a user-led portfolio of work that meets the needs of our clients.

About the role:

As our Volunteer Engagement Coordinator, you will have overall responsibility for our volunteer department. You will manage, motivate, inspire, and lead a team of dedicated volunteers to maintain the highest standards of quality and deliver innovative new initiatives which enhance the lives of vision impaired people and their family, friends and carers across Norfolk.

The ideal candidate will be a compassionate and dedicated individual with a strong track record in volunteer management to work within the very heart of our team, and enable the charity to achieve even more for those that we are here to support.

The Volunteer Engagement Coordinator will be responsible for leading and managing the performance of our volunteer team, ensuring effective use of resources whilst delivering and developing high quality services in accordance with our contractual commitments.

Due to the nature of the role, the post holder will be required to work flexibly to support their volunteers. This may require the post holder to work occasional evenings and weekends when appropriate.
