Non-Profit Administrative Volunteer

The Organisation:


Eye Heroes is the UK’s first child-led campaign to fight avoidable blindness. Children are trained through volunteer-led interactive workshops in schools and after school clubs to become eye health champions, and inform people in their communities about eye health and the benefits of regular eye tests.


This is an exciting time to join Eye Heroes because we are starting a new project in Greater London where we will run 200 workshops over the next two years. We have ambitious goals and want to connect with enthusiastic people with a passion for making the world a better place.


The position

We are looking for someone who is highly organized with an interest in learning more about non-profit management.


With support from the Project Lead, the volunteer will help to develop systems that are going to enable the Eye Heroes programme to grow rapidly over the next few years. We need to improve data collection methods, ideally to start using a database rather than excel, write procedures for processes such as volunteer recruitment, and generally organize ourselves so that we are ready for the programme to scale.


The ideal candidate will have a sound understanding of office software for word processing, power point presentations, and basic database management. A key to success in this role is to be highly motivated, self-directed and results driven, as there are no set office hours.


Volunteer profile

Required:

  • Excellent communication skills
  • Relevant studies or work experience in non-profits or management.
  • Interest in our work at Eye Heroes, and our mission
  • Highly motivated, self-directed and results-driven
  • The ability to reformulate ideas through various communication channels
  • Ability to work to deadlines
  • Excellent organisational skills and problem-solving skills
  • Creativity
  • 3 months minimum commitment, 3 hours per week


Desired:

  • Experience in writing reports/newsletters
  • Database management


People whose lives have been affected by sight loss have an important voice in the work we do. Hence, we encourage applications from anyone who has personal experience of sight loss or blindness, including those impacted through a loved one’s circumstances.


The benefits of volunteering with us

In return for your invaluable participation in our volunteering programme, Eye Heroes will provide:

  • a thorough induction to the organisation, programmes, and specific role
  • Monthly supervision and regular check in’s
  • the chance to be a part of a diverse and dedicated team and a welcoming community
  • a letter confirming volunteer service, upon successful completion

 

If you would like to apply, please send a resume and detailed cover letter explaining why you feel you would be suitable for the position.
