Charity People are thrilled to be assisting Helpforce in their search for a Volunteering Innovations Manager.

Helpforce’s ‘volunteering innovations’ are a key element of our strategy for growing and improving health volunteering, and better supporting NHS patients, staff, services and volunteers.

We have recently announced 12 NHS Trusts that will work with Helpforce to gather evidence, develop, and scale ‘volunteering innovations’ such as initiatives around ED, End of life, Hospital to home, and Mental health support.

We are looking for an experienced project manager to coordinate the production of these volunteering innovations, and ‘package’ them up so they can be adopted by all NHS trusts and thus scaled UK wide.

The project manager will work closely with Helpforce’s Regional Leads, NHS trusts, voluntary sector partners and other stakeholders to ensure a timely and methodical approach. The initial priority will be developing the packaged innovation for ‘End of Life’ and working with a cohort of national experts and partners.

We expect this to be up to 35 hours of work per week in various flexible locations. It can be primarily home-based and will involve travel to our London office and to venues around the UK as we convene and host ‘cohorts’ of NHS trusts and partners to co-produce the packaged innovations.
