Oxfam's Northern Logistics Centre in Batley is a unique recycling facility, currently sorting 80 tonnes of textiles a week in order to maximise income from donations. This involves various teams at the site who transport, sort, sell and provide office support for these teams.
The Batley site also lists and sells items online (similar to eBay), this is called the Online Hub. Since April the Online Hub has built a team of 17 volunteers, but is aiming to grow the team to over 70 volunteers by the end of 2014.
There are also voluntary opportunities in the support offices at Batley which would need to be recruited for.
Because of this, an exciting voluntary opportunity has become available for a Volunteer Recruitment Manager, who will have the opportunity to create, implement and recruit for a number of unique and diverse volunteer roles. The role will also need you to interact and network with the local community in Batley so that the site has good community links for volunteer recruitment.
You will gain valuable experience, learn new skills and contribute towards Oxfam's goal of overcoming poverty and suffering.
Frequency: Approx 12-18 hours per week, flexible shifts.
