Fighting Words NI – Volunteer Co-ordinator – closing 9 Dec

Fighting Words NI is recruiting for a Volunteer Co-ordinator, to be responsible for co-ordinating all elements of volunteering to support our annual programme. 

As a volunteer-centred charity we value the involvement of volunteers supporting our workshops. All of our programmes — from schools workshops, to our after school writing clubs — are facilitated by teams of volunteer writing mentors. We’re always on the look-out for people who are passionate about helping young writers to find their creative spark!  

The post-holder will coordinate the volunteers and oversee their engagement with our participants — primarily children and young people aged 6-18 participating in our workshops and activities (both face-to-face and online) or adults who did not have access to these activities as children. The Volunteer Co-ordinator will motivate, support, monitor, and evaluate our volunteers. As necessary, the post-holder will lead and/or assist at Fighting Words Northern Ireland workshops, as a fully trained Workshop Leader. The successful candidate will work as part of a core staff team, reporting directly to the General Manager and Director. 

Please note that the deadline for receipt of applications for this role is 12 noon on Friday 9th December 2022. Applicants will be contacted Monday 12th December, with interviews anticipated to be held on Thursday 15th and Friday 16th December 2022.
