Vacancies at Reach

Reach Volunteering 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.

We inspire, support and connect people who want to volunteer their expertise with charities and nonprofits throughout the UK. These organisations are tackling important challenges with little income. Skills-based volunteers make a big difference, bringing valuable expertise in under-resourced areas such as digital and finance, or making charity boards stronger and more diverse. It is rewarding for volunteers too, enabling them to broaden their experience, make a positive contribution and support a cause that is close to their heart.

Crises such as the pandemic, the cost of living and the climate emergency increase the pressure and demands on charities and nonprofits. Thankfully, they also spur more people to help. Reach brings volunteers and good causes together to make change and create a better society.

Why work at Reach?

We are a friendly, deeply collaborative team of 10 staff, supported by many amazing volunteers, great freelancers and a strong supportive board. We strive to live our values: bold and experimental, people-centred, collaborative and honest. View our Organisation chart.

As a valued member of our team, you will be encouraged and supported to take risks and to learn and develop, and enjoy plenty of autonomy. You will be able to draw on the expertise and enthusiasm of a team that uses a service design approach, and has a user-centred mindset.

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.

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.

About our application process

  • We want to make our recruitment process as fair as possible. To reduce biases, we shortlist candidates based on their responses to application questions. We anonymise responses and review each response independently. You can read more about our approach in our blog 'Ditching CVs and Cover letters'.
  • We design our questions to test for the experience and attributes we list in the person specification and we do not look at your CV in our initial shortlisting.
  • We are committed to making every reasonable adjustment to the recruitment process to accommodate people with disabilities.
