CS Charity Research Volunteer

About the opportunity

There have been a lot of changes in the sector in the last 12 months and we are working hard to ensure we are supporting voluntary and community groups in the borough as best we can, responding to their needs and increasing resilience.

We are seeking a Research Volunteer to work alongside our VCS Support Officers in their work engaging with local charities and community groups.

You would be producing resources for local charities and community groups, developing a list of external services to signpost to, helping to design a user-experience led funding database and getting feedback from local organisations.

This will be a fantastic opportunity to develop your understanding of the sector, make connections with local groups and help create resources that will make a difference.

What will you do?
  • Update and develop resources for local community groups on areas of organisational development such as governance, collaboration, monitoring and evaluation and financial management
  • Conduct outreach with local community organisations to gain feedback on their needs and our services
  • Work collaboratively with our VCS Support Team to develop services that best serve the local voluntary and community sector
We are an Equal Opportunities Employer

We are particularly keen to ensure that our staff reflect the diverse nature of the communities in which we work. Applications from disabled people, the LGBTQ+ communities, people from ethnic minority backgrounds, South London residents and people who share lived experience with our service users are very warmly welcomed.

We will generally offer an interview to any applicant that declares they have a disability and meets the minimum criteria for the role as defined by volunteer specification.

Deadline is the 16th June at 5pm.
