Volunteer: You may be what Canadian Diabetes Assoc needs

Are you looking to make a difference in the lives of people in your community, province, and country?

The Canadian Diabetes Association is looking for a volunteer coordinator. The position is vital to the success of the association’s fundraising programs, by supervising and supporting volunteer resources to assist in the delivery of our programs and services.

The volunteer coordinator works very closely with the branch coordinator and office volunteers to ensure prompt follow up, coordination and response management of volunteer work, projects and programs in the office.

The association is looking for someone who has great communication, computer and data entry skills. Knowledge of MS Word and Excel are required for this position.

The successful applicant will be responsible for volunteer recruitment, interviewing, orientation, training and recognition as well as record keeping. While volunteer recruitment is an important aspect of this role, increasing the engagement of current volunteers is essential.

The association is looking for a commitment of two to three hours per week and is very flexible on the day in which you come in.

A positive attitude and a passion for helping people is a must. If this sounds like a volunteer position you may be interested in, please contact Glenna Armstrong at glenna.armstrong@diabetes.ca or phone the Canadian Diabetes Association office at 250-762-9447. We look forward to hearing from you.
