The Association of Volunteer Managers (AVM) is an independent membership body that aims to support, represent and champion people in volunteer management across the UK. It has been set up by and for people who manage volunteers and has been growing for over a decade.
Our membership now stands at over 400 people across various fields, disciplines and sectors. Joining us ensures that those who manage volunteers are part of an active network of volunteer management professionals across the country, where they can give and receive support, exchange ideas and learn from each other.
Through AVM, volunteer managers have the chance to join together, speak with a louder voice, and influence volunteer management policy makers and funders.
AVM also runs a vibrant programme of learning events throughout the year, as well as our popular annual conference. In addition to the excellent discounts members on these events, all have the opportunity to contribute to or to lead various elements, enabling them to develop their leadership skills and strengthen their reputation within the volunteer management sector.
So, we are proud of the services we offer our members.
However, we also know we could do a lot to improve things. We think many members might not be fully aware of the range of benefits we offer, and we suspect our members have needs that AVM is not meeting.
Our Membership Sub-committee is made up of three Board Members and our Membership Administrator. We would like to invite our members to join us, to help us improve our services, and ultimately, the support and leadership available for volunteer managers across the UK.
We are recruiting to three volunteer roles, all of whom would form part of our Membership team. These roles are as follows:
- Membership Development Officer
- Membership Services Evaluation Officer (X2)
- Membership Benchmarking Officer
All of these roles will be managed and supported by the AVM Director leading Membership services – Angela Wilson.
If you would like to find out a bit more about any of the roles, you can contact Angela at: email@example.com
The closing date for applications is 27 April 2018.
