We have two exciting new positions open as we start working in Sheffield! Are you skilled in engaging with churches and inspiring people to action? Or are you trained in family support and keen to make a difference for families?
Community Volunteer Manager:
The Community Volunteer Manager is a key staff role with responsibility for building relationships with local churches to establish Safe Families within the church as one of the tools they can use to serve their neighbourhood. The Community Volunteer Manager is essential in recruiting, training and supporting our volunteer base.
This role would be based in a new Sheffield office recruiting volunteers to meet the needs of families referred by Sheffield Local Authority. This office is part of our Midlands team. We meet together at our central office (in Chillwell) fortnightly.
Family Support Manager:
The Family Support Manager is a key staff role which involves working with families referred by the LA and facilitating support from volunteers recruited from the local church and community. You will work as part of a team and be involved from initial referral from the LA through to closure of case. To include risk assessment of family situation, identifying family goals, matching and introducing volunteers, providing on-going mentoring and support to volunteers, to deciding when outcomes have been achieved and the case can be closed. The role requires experience of working with children and families, and knowledge and application of Safeguarding principles and processes. It is an exciting role where we have the privilege of seeing how the simplest of actions by dedicated volunteers really can bring hope and transformation for families.
