Volunteer Coordinator - Voluntary


Register your Interest

BrightStore is a volunteer led grocery store. Our members are also our volunteers and they are the heartbeat of BrightStore. We strive to provide a supportive and positive experience for all our members and volunteers, and now we are looking for a Volunteer Coordinator to help us to recruit, retain and support our teams. This is a great opportunity to help shape the way we involve volunteers, and a fantastic experience for someone looking to progress their career in the charity/not for profit sector. 

Although this role is currently being offered as a voluntary role, we are happy to pursue funding to make this a paid position, for the right candidate. 

This role will involve:

  • Working with us to improve and implement our volunteer strategy.
  • Create and deliver an exemplary volunteer programme.
  • Support the recruitment of volunteers.
  • Manage communications with volunteers, and build relationships. 
  • Ensure all volunteers are offered support, skills and opportunities.


You do not necessarily have had to have worked as a Volunteer Coordinator but we are looking for someone who has some understanding and experience of supporting groups of people.

Ideally you:

  • Enjoy developing relationships with diverse groups of people.
  • Enjoy being part of a close knit team and are happy managing others.
  • Have good communication skills and enjoy supporting others. 

We would also love you to have an interest and passion for the work we do! 


This voluntary role will give someone the opportunity to:

  • Be part of a fantastic and growing local community project
  • Be able to make a real difference to people's lives, both the volunteer teams and the membership generally
  • The chance to learn new skills and gain valuable experience.

Practical Considerations

We would be asking you to visit various of our venues to build relationships with our volunteer teams, so you would need to be able to travel. We can offer travel expenses.

Ideally you would also have space to work from home.

When do I need to be available?

Details We are looking for someone ideally for around 15 hours per week, we would like the main bulk of the hours to be between 1-4 on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, when you would be in store. The rest of the hours would be spent on admin. We are flexible on the hours to suit however.
