Application Deadline

Job title: Network Coordinator – West Region

Reporting to: Networks and Volunteering Manager 

Location: Home based with some travel throughout the region and around the UK

Contract: Permanent

Salary: £24,000 per annum pro rata (£13.24 per hour)

Hours:  Part Time - 21 hours per week


A strength of Sands is the network of over 100 Groups around the UK, each with its own committee, local fundraising and bank account, working within the Sands Group Constitution. 
Sands supports the Groups through a team of Network Coordinators who act as the main point of contact for the volunteers in their region. The coordinators provide advice and assistance to the Groups, and work to strengthen the Network, building it into a resource for sharing good practice and a resilient structure that can complement and enhance the work of the Groups.

We are looking for a highly motivated person with a flexible approach  to further  develop this region,  which covers Shropshire, Staffordshire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, and parts of Cheshire. Sands  currently has 11 Groups in the region who support bereaved parents, provide materials to hospitals and promote training for professionals, and fundraise for these and other Sands projects, including our research goals.

This is a key role which helps us to promote Sands’ vision; a world where fewer babies die and when a baby dies anyone affected by the death receives the best care and support for as long as they need. 

If you have a positive ‘can do’ attitude with excellent organisational and communication skills (both verbal and written), experience of working with volunteers, the ability to remain calm under pressure and work in a confidential setting together with a strong commitment to, and belief in, the values of the services that Sands provides,  then we would welcome your application.

Please review the job description and person specification for this role and return the completed application form and equal opportunities form to recruitment@uk-sands.org.
