A new and exciting opportunity has arisen within the Volunteer Services Team at Dorothy House Hospice Care as we look to establish a team of Community Engagement & Volunteer Coordinators who will support an Asset Based Community Development approach to co-produce sustainable solutions to existing and future health & wellbeing challenges.

Working collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders, the Community Engagement & Volunteer Coordinators will set up and develop a local volunteer service which will train, manage and support a team of volunteers offering practical, social and emotional support to our patients, their families, and carers.


The Community Engagement & Volunteer Coordinators will act as ambassadors, seeking out community partnership opportunities and embracing collaboration with other organisations whilst actively promoting the work of Dorothy House, they will work with patients, their families and carers to understand their needs and requirements ensuring appropriate volunteer support is provided, and will share knowledge and advice around community assets and stakeholders to empower colleagues across the hospice to support an asset based community development approach to service development.


A qualification in Health & Social Care (or relevant experience in a similar role) alongside experience of community development engagement and a demonstrable background in recruiting and managing a volunteer workforce are essential requirements for this post. The successful candidate must also demonstrate flexibility to meet organisational needs and must be in possession of a car and a full clean driving licence. In return you will receive a competitive remuneration package receiving excellent holiday and pension benefits. You will be surrounded by inspiring and motivational colleagues supporting you to succeed and working alongside you to succeed and deliver on the values of Dorothy House.


This is a unique and exciting opportunity and one you do not want to miss!


DH is committed to the continued health and wellbeing of its employees, patients, clients and anyone who has contact with its services, as well as wider responsibility within the community that the hospice serves.  Therefore, as a condition of offer of, and continued, employment with DH, all new staff will be required to commit to receiving the Coronavirus vaccinations, or to receive this with the organisation’s support within the probation period.  Also any boosters that may be required during employment with DH.  Exceptions to this will of course be fairly considered in line with Equality Law and other circumstances that may not reasonably fall into these criteria.
