The post holder will support organisations to create sustainable placements for volunteers who experience barriers to employment. They will offer support, training, tools and advice to organisations enabling them to be more inclusive within their volunteer roles, while improving the effectiveness of their programmes.

We are an Investors in People employer and the accredited Volunteer Centre for Islington.
