If you are experienced in leading the strategic development of engaging with local communities through developing partnerships and participative opportunities for a diverse range of people, this exciting new opportunity could be the role for you.
What you’ll be doing
Belfast is a culturally and socially aware city, and as Volunteering and Partnerships Manager, you will have a key role to play in shaping our engagement and partnership working across Belfast and the surrounding area. This will include working with individuals who are passionate about our places and our conservation cause, as well as key stakeholders such as local and regional government agencies, businesses, community groups and other charities.
You’ll be a key part of the leadership team for the Belfast Property Group and will always have the involvement of volunteers and the opportunity for partnership working at the forefront of your mind. You will work collaboratively with the General Manager and six other Heads of Departments to ensure we deliver mutual benefit both for the places the National Trust cares for and for the people who live in the communities around us. You will develop a volunteering and partnership plan that is focused on delivering inclusive, relevant, creative and accessible involvement opportunities which meet the needs of our diverse local communities.
You will ensure that we underpin this work with robust frameworks and processes that are safe and ethical. You’ll be responsible for the continual review and development of the volunteer journey across the Belfast Property Group, from safeguarding to planning and recruiting volunteer roles, data management systems and growing support. You’ll work with a network of volunteer managers within other departments who supervise our volunteers’ day to day activities and tasks. You will develop their confidence and capabilities to create amazing volunteer experiences, and you’ll create your own team of volunteers to support you in what you’re doing.
Using your experience and your excellent leadership you’ll inspire and motivate the team to deliver great results and exceed expectations. You’ll play a full and active role within the operation of the visitor experience and wider property activities.
