Volunteer Area Development Manager

Tools with a Mission

Name: Volunteer Area Development Manager
Organisation: Tools with a Mission
Location: 2 Bailey Close, Hadleigh Road Industrial Estate, Ipswich, Suffolk, IP2 0UD
Type: Part Time
Flexible

Description

You will be looking for opportunities to promote TWAM and to raise TWAM’s profile helping us to collect more tools, raise more money to support the work and to attract additional volunteers

This is a flexible role—it is a role where ‘what you get out’ depends on ‘what you put in’

The role is a networking, wide ranging and flexible role but some of the things you might do include:
❏ Putting literature into local churches
❏ Asking groups such as Rotary if they would like a speaker to come and speak
❏ Putting on an event to raise money
❏ Arranging a Tool collection at a local supermarket
❏ Dealing with enquiries TWAM receives to help support other events being put on in your area
❏ Working with others within TWAM to build a strong network in the area

The charitable work of Tools with a Mission is to collect unwanted tools, refurbish them, sort them into trade kits and send them across the world for livelihood creation. We send around 20 containers filled with over 300 tonnes of tools every year. To do this we rely on a national volunteer workforce and welcome people of all ages and abilities and of any faith and no faith.

We do this because we want to support local people supporting their own communities through sustainable livelihood creating projects. We believe there is dignity through work and the ability to provide for yourself and your family. We believe entire communities can be transformed through training and the provision of tool kits and equipment. As a Christian Charity, we believe that God's heart reaches out to the poor and that He calls us to follow His example. Our motivation is to work with faith and non-faith based organisations to be a refuge for the poor, a safe place to find support, hope and dignity through the provision of tools and equipment
