Volunteering Administrator

Goldsmiths, University of London

This is an exciting time to be joining the Careers Service team at Goldsmiths, University of London. Major investment to expand the team has been agreed by the College, with 6 new posts being advertised together.

The expansion covers several teams: Employer Engagement, Placements, Student Enterprise and Skills, as the College seeks to increase the range of opportunities available for its students to gain relevant skills and experience during their time at Goldsmiths and to expand its network of graduate recruiters. This is all aimed at supporting students before, during and after their time at Goldsmiths to succeed in the graduate labour market or develop their own ideas for running a business or freelancing.

There is one post of Volunteering Administrator being advertised. This is an opportunity for an effective administrator with a passion for excellent customer service, volunteering and engaging with community organisations to join the University.

Based within the Careers Service, which is part of the Student Experience Directorate, this role makes a key contribution to our work in supporting student employability by expanding the range of volunteering opportunities available to Goldsmiths students. This role will be part of a new initiative to work in partnership across the University and the local community to source and promote new and existing volunteering opportunities within the University and the local area to current students.

The successful applicant will ideally hold an HNC / HND / degree and relevant recent experience. Excellent communication, interpersonal, IT and problem solving skills are all essential, as is the ability to multi-task. An understanding of how community volunteering can improve employability skills is also important.

This post operates on a full time basis, within the hours of Monday – Friday 9.30 - 5.30pm. Occasional evening / weekend working may be required, although this would be minimal and time off in lieu would be applied.
