Welcome to Reach Volunteering. We are a community and registered charity that connects people, skills and good causes.

To apply for this role, and any other on our platform, you need to be based in the UK, have at least three years of experience using the skills you wish to volunteer in a professional capacity or have lived experience (for trustee roles). Read more about our criteria.

This role will identify the skills and capacity required to run the organisation and source candidates to meet them. It will also play a crucial role in developing Parapride’s volunteer benefits package and talent acquisition strategy. 

What will you be doing?

We are expecting that the roles that this role will be involved in hiring will initially be focused on supporting ParaPride’s core operations (marketing, events and web development) but could include placements in finance, legal, compliance and HR in the future.  

Duties

  • Collaborate with ParaPride’s Co-founder and Board of Trustees to identify and prioritise required skills to run the organisation effectively.
  • Develop a strategy for acquiring talent that is inclusive and accessible such that our LGBTQ+ disabled community are given full opportunity to be able to be involved. Provide feedback on practices and policies to support this.
  • Develop and review role descriptions for required roles and advertise across appropriate channels.
  • Screen and shortlist candidates as appropriate, coordinate interview loops and manage candidate communications. 
  • Carry out pre-volunteering checks, including references and Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks where appropriate.
  • Support volunteer onboarding by coordination the execution of volunteer agreements and creating onboarding plans.
  • In partnership with marketing team members, develop content to share across web and social channels to promote benefits and opportunities for potential candidates to get involved.
  • Support in the development of a benefits package to support in the acquisition of volunteers (non-salaried). 

 

We will also welcome any additional suggestions for how you might wish to apply your skills to support ParaPride in its mission. 

What are we looking for?

We are looking for someone with 3+ years experience in recruitment (any field) . We also encourage students and graduates who can demonstrate strong alignment with our mission, vision and values.  

We are dedicated to ensuring that this role is a productive professional development experience for the incumbent and welcome suggestions from potential candidates on how we might support their specific goals. 

We strongly welcome candidates that have lived experiences of being disabled and/or LGBTQ+, although this not an explicit requirement

What difference will you make?

We expect that hiring this role will be a critical step in ParaPride’s development as being able to engage with people willing and able to support our cause is the only way for us to be able to grow our operations to provide better support for more LGBTQ+ disabled people and deliver more training and workshops to enable others to be become better allies. 

Before you apply

At ParaPride, we are committed to ensuring that all of our engagements are as accessible and as inclusive as possible. These include applying for and interviewing for roles. Whilst we understand that we can never be fully accessible as everybody's needs are different, we strive to be proactive with thinking about accessibility requirements.

When applying for a role at ParaPride, if you would like to get in touch to talk about any access requirements, please let us know.
