About Reach Volunteering

Reach is the leading skills-based volunteering charity and the UK’s single biggest source of trustees for the voluntary sector. Our Vision is to create a thriving, fairer and sustainable society. 

The Team

The TrusteeWorks team generates income for Reach and plays a key role in supporting Reach’s work. The TrusteeWorks consultants deliver our trustee search service, working with a wide variety of charities and not-for-profits to find the trustees they need to ensure strong leadership and effective governance.

The Role

We want to grow; offer our service to more clients and generate more income for Reach’s fantastic work. We’re looking for a Service Coordinator to support our Consultants, helping them deliver our trustee recruitment service, and to handle essential administrative tasks that ensure our clients and candidates have a great experience.

You’ll be attending briefing calls with a view to managing ongoing communication with clients; searching for candidates using the Reach website and Linkedin, and helping manage the application process. Also, producing candidate packs; researching prospective clients and helping us with all the day-to-day admin that underpins our service. It’s a role right at the heart of the team and you’ll learn a lot about recruitment, the charity sector and trusteeship.

We’d love this person to progress into a full Consultant role. We’ll provide plenty of training and encouragement and there will be lots of opportunity to develop your skills and increase your level of responsibility over time. 

Who are we looking for?

Perhaps you work in an administration role, want to progress and know you would really thrive in a values-driven environment where you’re using your skills to make a difference. Maybe you’re supporting a client-facing team and you’d relish the opportunity to have more direct client contact. You’ll definitely have great communication skills and thrive in a small organisation where a flexible approach is key.

Reach Volunteering is committed to becoming a more diverse, inclusive and equal organisation, and to helping to increase equity, diversity and inclusion in civil society. We have put equity at the heart of our new vision, values and beliefs. You can read more about our EDI journey, and our vision and values, below. 

We welcome people of all backgrounds, identities and experiences. We would particularly welcome applications from candidates who are disabled, Black, Asian or from other minoritised communities, who identify within the LGBTQIA+ community, or identify as from a lower or disadvantaged socioeconomic background as these groups are currently under-represented on our staff team.
