New partnership to promote trustee and specialist skilled volunteering vacancies

29 March 2017

Community Impact Bucks announces an exciting new partnership with Reach Volunteering.

As the accredited Volunteer Centre for Buckinghamshire, it is the role of Community Impact Bucks to promote volunteering and to help and advise organisations so they can find the volunteers they need.

We have recently entered a partnership agreement with Reach Volunteering, the national organisation that connects charities and non-profits with skilled and experienced volunteers, to make it even easier for local organisations to fill trustee vacancies and skills-based volunteering roles such as marketing, management, finance, HR, or IT amongst others.

Our agreement allows for a live-stream of Reach vacancies in Buckinghamshire to be displayed on Community Impact Bucks’ dedicated volunteering website, www.volunteeringbucks.org.uk, making such roles easier to find and giving them prominence.

Local charities and non-profit organisations will be encouraged to post vacancies for trustees and specialist skilled volunteering roles on the Reach website to give them access to the thousands of skilled volunteers registered with Reach.  We will also continue to promote Reach to prospective volunteers in Buckinghamshire.

Nick Phillips, CIB chief executive, said, “We are really excited about our new partnership with Reach.  They have over 35 years of experience of making worthwhile connections between charities and experienced volunteers and I know this will be of real benefit to our local organisations.”

Janet Thorne, Reach chief executive officer, said, “Our volunteers can make a real difference to a charity or non-profit group.  They have several years of experience, and a huge range of expertise, and are interested in using them to have a positive impact on communities and society.  I’m thrilled that the charities and organisations in Buckinghamshire will benefit from the new partnership.”

The trustee and skills-based vacancy streaming will be going live in spring 2017 but organisations are encouraged to make use of Reach in the meantime and to post all appropriate vacancies to their website at www.reachskills.org.uk
