Volunteer Area Development Manager for Tools with a Mission

Role Type: Regular
Based: North West
Categories: Supporting people, Transport / Driving
Availability: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday

What would I be doing?

You will be looking for opportunities to promote TWAM and to raise TWAM’s profile helping us to collect more tools, raise more money to support the work and to attract additional volunteers

This is a flexible role—it is a role where ‘what you get out’ depends on ‘what you put in’

The role is a networking, wide ranging and flexible role but some of the things you might do include:
❏ Putting literature into local churches
❏ Asking groups such as Rotary, if they would like a speaker to come and speak
❏ Putting on an event to raise money
❏ Arranging a Tool collection at a local supermarket
❏ Dealing with enquiries TWAM receives to help support other events in your area
❏ Working with others within TWAM to build a strong network in the area

What skills do I need?

This is a great role if you enjoy meeting people and networking. It is helpful if you are a creative thinker. You should be able to show initiative and have the ability to complete the tasks you commit to. You should be organised and reliable and able to respond to queries and requests in a timely manner. You should be a good communicator, polite and helpful and able to express passion in what you do.

About Tools with a Mission

The charitable work of Tools with a Mission is to collect unwanted tools, refurbish them, sort them into trade kits and send them across the world for livelihood creation. We send around 20 containers filled with over 300 tonnes of tools every year. To do this we rely on a national volunteer workforce and welcome people of all ages and abilities and of any faith and no faith.

We do this because we want to support local people supporting their own communities through sustainable livelihood creating projects. We believe there is dignity through work and the ability to provide for yourself and your family. We believe entire communities can be transformed through training and the provision of tool kits and equipment

Recruitment and training details:

We will ask for completion of one of our Volunteer Application forms which will be reviewed by the relevant manager who will give you a call for an informal discussion.
If both parties are happy, we will take up references.
Once satisfactory references are received, we will provide a Volunteer Handbook and arrange for remaining paperwork to be completed.

We will provide a full induction and volunteer handbook on starting, a named contact whilst you are volunteering and further training as required. You will feel the warm satisfaction of being able to make a difference. A chance to meet new people and learn new skills. A reference if required for a future employer.

Is a DBS required? No
Are volunteer expenses covered? e.g. travel Yes
