There really has never been a more exciting time to join us; University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust and Weston Area Health NHS Trust have merged together to become one organisation. Our newly merged Trust has a combined workforce of over 13,000 staff, aiming to deliver exceptional local services for local people and specialist services across the South West and beyond. Together, we form one of the largest NHS trusts in the country.

University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust is looking for a dynamic and passionate Voluntary Services Coordinator who can  build strong relationships with volunteers, staff and our communities and take forward our volunteer programme with energy, creativity and enthusiasm.  

Do you have a track record in delivering diverse and responsive volunteer programmes at scale? Then this role might be for you…

We are in an important stage of our Covid-19 recovery, where we are now re-engaging with volunteers into a number of key areas of our hospitals. You will be joining and leading a small, committed and passionate group of staff who are working hard to grow our volunteer program step by step across our hospitals in Bristol and Weston-Super-Mare. We are looking to increase the number of volunteers we work with, to diversify our volunteer community and to extend the range of activities volunteers support. 

Volunteers contribute a huge amount to the patient and staff experience. We are looking for someone who has a track record in building strong and productive relationships with a range of stakeholders internally and externally in order to provide a ‘go-to’ place to volunteer in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.  The experience of our volunteers is paramount.

This is such an exciting time to join the team because we are currently in the stakeholder engagement phase of developing our new volunteer strategy. So, if you’re interested in shaping what we do over the next 5 years, and playing a crucial role in delivering on the ambitions you help define- then this is the role for you!
