Volunteer Engagement Project Officer

 

Job Title:       Volunteer Engagement Project Officer (VEPO)
Reports to:    Programme Manager
Location:       12 Parliament Street, Dublin 2

Comhlámh is the Irish Association of Development Workers and Volunteers. Our mission is to nurture, guide and mobilise development workers and volunteers to work for social justice locally and globally. Comhlámh is committed to being the leading independent voice and source of information on volunteering for development in Ireland, and the coordinator and advocate for good practice in this area through all the stages of the volunteering life-cycle from pre-decision to post return.  We work to promote and support volunteers and development workers to critically engage in volunteering and action for development, and to create societal and attitudinal change on development issues.

We are seeking to recruit a Volunteer Engagement Project Officer (VEPO), who will play a key role in supporting all strategic areas of Comhlámh’s work with returned volunteers.   The VEPO will be responsible for coordinating the final stages of an Erasmus+ funded project on active citizenship (Key Action 2 – adult education). The ideal candidate will have a background in international or community development, excellent analytical and written skills, communication skills, and excellent project management skills with experience of coordinating international partners to deliver complex projects on-schedule and to a high standard.  This will be coupled with experience of working to develop and facilitate adult education training curriculums, including in online formats. S/he will have worked or volunteered in the Global South, have experience of using consultative and participative approaches to build consensus among a range of stakeholders, and a strong interest in supporting the engagement of volunteers in social justice and international development issues.

The VEPO plays a role in enabling and motivating Comhlámh members to become involved in development action that draws on, and is informed by, issues and interests they identify.  We are committed to supporting this role when the current funding ends, and the VEPO will have the opportunity to input into the development and shaping of its continuation.  This will be dependent on accessing funding: further key requirements of the role include capacity to develop international networks, prepare project proposals, and identify and respond to potential funding opportunities.

This post is being recruited on a 4 day week basis and will offered at the Project Officer scale ranging from €24,000 up to €36,000 (4 day basis). Appointment will be made according to suitability, experience and qualifications. The post is initially being offered until the end of October 2018; there will be a possibility of extension, subject to funding.

Application Procedure:

Please apply with a covering letter (max one page) outlining how you meet the criteria and a CV to [email protected], entering PO – Volunteer Engagement Project Officer & (the location where you saw this advertisement) in the subject line. Closing date for receipt of applications is Thursday 14th September at 17:00 GMT.
