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.
