We are looking for an experienced leader, preferably with community health or volunteer experience.  You will have strong co-ordination and relationship management skills to manage the assignment of volunteers to patients and families in their homes. 

You will manage change and continue to develop the new volunteer roles to meet the needs of our community. Experience of healthcare or palliative care would be desirable. Sound organisational planning and implementation skills and an understanding of and commitment to the multidisciplinary team approach to patient care are essential.
