About us
Volunteering Matters is the UK’s biggest volunteering charity, engaging annually with over 30,000 volunteers to make a difference to nearly 90,000 beneficiaries.
Our mission is to enable everyone to take an active role in their communities. We focus on the needs of four particular communities: young people, older people, vulnerable families and older and retired people.

The programmes we deliver are diverse, often volunteer-led and are focussed on high social impact – they change lives. Our funding model is mixed, including funding from charitable trusts, local government, central government and devolved administrations.

About the Role
Volunteering Matters is the new provider for the Community Driving Scheme in Milton Keynes. Driving schemes are a lifeline to some older and more vulnerable people who find it hard to get out of the house. Volunteer drivers support people to medical appointments, including hospital, local surgeries, dentists and opticians. Volunteer drivers are recruited, trained and supported by Volunteering Matters.
Volunteering Matters are committed to ensuring that our volunteers get the best possible experience. We are looking for an exceptional Project Officer to support the delivery of this project.

Appointment to this position is subject to an enhanced disclosure check. Having a conviction will not necessarily cause a bar to employment.

In return for your commitment we offer 25 days holiday per year (FTE) plus discretionary festive leave + public holidays. We also offer a 3% employer pension contribution, flexible working opportunities and enhanced employee benefits.
