Volunteer Coordinator

University of Leeds - School of Healthcare

Are you a well organised and adaptable individual, committed to working with volunteers? Do you want to help the School of Healthcare develop and deliver an exciting intervention to train up and support older volunteers to become peer mentors for osteoarthritis?

Using your excellent skills and expertise of recruiting, training and supporting volunteers, you will have the responsibility for coordinating a volunteer-led peer mentoring intervention package, from its early stages of development, through to its implementation and evaluation.

With experience of working with supporting volunteers, you will have excellent communication skills and the ability to work effectively with older people, drawing on strong interpersonal skills. You will be well organised, with the ability to manage your daily administrative workload and a flexible approach to work.

You will be expected to work collaboratively with a team of researchers and clinical experts on the aMIgO project (Developing peer Mentorship to Improve self-management of Osteoarthritis: a feasibility study). Your role will involve contributing to developing and evaluating a peer support model, which will be delivered by trained volunteers.
