Citizens in Policing (Volunteering) Assistant - JRN 20755
 

The role:
Northumbria Police is the sixth largest police force in England and Wales with a workforce of over 5,000 officers, staff and volunteers working together to deliver an outstanding service to our diverse communities. 

There is a well-established history of volunteering within Northumbria Police and we proudly recognise the support provided by our volunteers across a wide range of roles. We know that our Special Constabulary, Police Support Volunteers and Youth Volunteers provide a valuable and hugely significant contribution within our organisation. Volunteers represent an outstanding opportunity to better connect communities to policing and policing to communities. 

This is an exciting opportunity to work within the People Services Department in a fresh new role designed to support our ambition of creating an organisation where the enormous benefits of volunteering are fully realised; an organisation with a positive volunteering culture which celebrates their contributions whilst proactively exploring new ways to widen involvement and continually enhance the volunteer experience. 

In return for your dedication and experience, we offer 23 days’ leave, excluding bank holidays, increasing to 28 days for 5 years+ service.  We support our people inside and out of work – offering a very competitive pension scheme, childcare vouchers, and discounts on shopping and eating out thanks to the Blue Light Card. And to take care of your physical and mental well-being, we’ve invested in extensive paid sick leave, trained mental health first aiders on-site, an employee advice service and access to gyms in some stations.  

What will I be doing?
You will provide a wide range of administrative support, working on a diverse range of projects and work streams. The role will include:

Working closely with volunteering leads to assist in the ongoing development of our volunteers and assist in developing future opportunities

Offering advice and information to potential volunteers and external organisations through face-to-face, telephone and email contact
