Leeds Asylum Seekers’ Support Network (LASSN) is looking for a Volunteer Manager to oversee and grow the work of our Befriending Project. This highly successful and unique project has been running for over 15 years, and thanks to a Lottery Grant is fully funded for another 2 years.
The person we appoint will have at least 12 months’ experience of supporting volunteers, enjoy working flexibly in a small, friendly team.
They will share LASSN’s commitment to ensuring asylum seekers and refugees are safe, respected, supported and empowered to rebuild their lives free of persecution; and a commitment to helping ordinary people find ways of making Leeds a friendlier, more welcoming city.
They will be confident working with IT (including Microsoft Office) and enjoy helping other people learn and acquire new skills.
Their can-do approach, and ability to complete tasks to agreed deadlines will play a key role in the smooth running of a team that values diversity, kindness, and high standards of support.
