Aid for Women seeks a Volunteer Coordinator to cultivate relationships with volunteers, groups and donors. This full-time position with benefits will provide support to senior staff. The ideal candidate will have a year or more professional experience in an office environment (not necessarily in a fundraising role) as well as an engaging personality for interactions with other staff, donors, and prospective donors.
The Volunteer Coordinator supports the mission of Aid for Women by recruiting, scheduling and recognizing volunteers. Ideal candidates will be excellent communicators and enjoy working with people. A high degree of organization and attention to detail, along with proficiency in Microsoft Word and Excel is required. Dependability, flexibility and the ability to respond to needs in a timely manner is a must. Previous experience working with volunteers is ideal and some knowledge of pregnancy help organizations is helpful, although not required. He or she should be highly skilled at managing priorities and problem solving independently and should be highly adept at building professional relationships in a variety of communication media (written correspondence, phone calls, and in-person meetings).
Due to the urgency of Aid for Women’s mission and the importance of personal contact for our work, significant in-state travel and evening/weekend hours will be required, especially for special events. As Aid for Women has an “all hands on deck” culture where all employees pitch in during major events and initiatives, flexibility and adaptability are key to the position. The Volunteer Coordinator will report directly to the Executive Director.
