Are you looking to join a growing charity that makes a real difference to people’s lives? You’re in luck!
We are looking for five enthusiastic and talented individuals to become a part of our team.

Volunteers & Community Manager – £30,000 (pro rata)  – Permanent- 3 days per week

Volunteers have always been at the heart of Colostomy UK. Our volunteers support people with stomas, and their families, carers and friends in many ways. They represent Colostomy UK at open days and they answer calls on our 24-hour stoma helpline to name but two. They also help with our fundraising and campaigning. The skills, experience, time and energy they bring to our charity, make a difference to the lives of people in need.

Colostomy UK wants to continue to be a fantastic place to volunteer and to do this we are looking for an inspiring and passionate manager to lead our team of volunteers. You will be responsible for recruiting, training, supporting and developing our volunteers. This means you will need to be an experienced people manager, with a thorough understanding of what motivates people and how to get the best from them.

With volunteers across the UK, you will need to be able to travel nationally for charity business and prepared to work the occasional evening and weekend.

PR & Engagement Manager – £30,000 to £35,000 – Permanent – Full time

The PR & Engagement Manager is a key role. You will be a hands-on person, with all the experience necessary to manage, develop and implement Colostomy UK’s marketing and communications strategy.

You will be responsible for ensuring that the charities services and campaigns are communicated widely and in a manner that constantly enhances Colostomy UK’s presence, reputation and profile, both within the ‘stoma’ world and more broadly in society. This will require you to be an expert in producing content for the charity’s social media platforms and website. You will have a flare for writing, but also a keen eye for spotting that misplaced comma.

You will also be involved in supporting our Fundraising & Campaigns Manager to drive our campaigns and projects for social change.  This will include managing the public face of Colostomy UK, taking ownership of all PR activities and building worthwhile relationships with the media.

You will manage our commercial opportunities (advertising and sponsorship income stream) generated from various organisations.

Beyond this, a key responsibility of the role is to inspire and engage the stoma community to become Colostomy UK’s volunteers, champions, fundraisers, campaigners, and donors of both today and tomorrow.
