The Fundraising team are looking for an enthusiastic individual to join the Events Volunteer Team. 

This role is overseeing the Events Volunteer Team ensuring that we have sufficient volunteer support at fundraising events in the community throughout the year. Additionally, we would like volunteers to feel prepared and supported to ensure they not only enjoy the experience but know it is also worthwhile.

• Communicating upcoming volunteer opportunities and securing appropriate volunteer attendance for it to run smoothly. This could involve making phone calls, emails, and polls to coordinate and schedule cover.

• Promptly thanking our volunteers for their time after the event.

• Ensuring that all volunteers have the items required to run the stall or community event.

• Checking in and out any fundraising equipment used such as the gazebo, collection tins and cashless donation points.

• Working with the Community Fundraising Officer to ensure we are maximising fundraising events.

Skills

• Be inclusive and welcoming.

• Communicate with staff on duty.

• Be flexible to the needs of the staff member on duty.

• Abide by the Confidentiality, Professional Boundaries and Health and Safety Policies always.

• Be willing travel – a driving licence would be helpful.

Benefits

Turning Tides offers volunteers training so your time volunteering is the best it can be, is as safe as possible, and of course adds value to your experience and to Turning Tides.

 Every volunteer regardless of role will have their initial induction.  During this induction you be taken through a PowerPoint presentation and be issued with ‘Not Just a Volunteer’ handbook. The induction will cover Professional Boundaries, Safeguarding and Equality and Diversity and be a chance for you to ask any questions.

 This role requires the following additional training, and we ask that you can commit to this. (The training is in a variety of formats depending on the subject – a video to watch, a document to read or an online course).

Practical Considerations

This is a flexible and ongoing role. Events often fall on weekends and some travel will be required. Ideally it would be for a few hours every month, which would increase during the Spring and Summer months. The role could be grown over time and would suit someone that relishes connecting with others in the community and providing support to other volunteers to ensure their experiences are positive. 

This is a home-based role but there will be the occasional need to attend events and meetings in person. Locations will vary within our local community's county wide.
