Volunteer Manager

We are looking for a Volunteer Manager to oversee the recruitment and selection, outreach and training of our in-house volunteer programme.

The Shakespeare North Playhouse is a unique new arts venue, opening in the summer of 2022. It will present a vibrant contemporary cultural and learning programme featuring home co-produced and visiting performances, as well as comedy, music, community work, hire and events and a range of education and training activities.

We are looking for a Volunteer Manager to oversee the recruitment and selection, outreach and training of our in-house volunteer programme. The programme will run across the entire company, with volunteers working within Visitor Experience, Marketing and Engagement teams. The role of the Volunteer Manager is to deliver the daily management of the programme, including rotas and briefings and to supervise volunteers as needed, being their first point of contact.

The post-holder will report to the Head of Visitor Experience for Shakespeare North Trust and work closely with the Visitor Experience Managers, Bars & Catering Manager, Head of Engagement and Head of Audiences.

The postholder will work a 32 hour week normally over 4 days (0.8FTE). Due to the nature of this role, however, and to meet the demands of the building, the post holder will need to be flexible in their approach to work. Evening and weekend work will be required at times.  The full-time salary will be up to £25,000 per annum (pro-rata) dependent on experience.
