Together we can make a real difference.

Belonging to the Royal Voluntary Service community means inspiring volunteers to support the nation's health and wellbeing. It means tackling the most pressing social issues in a workplace full of opportunities.

Through the gift of voluntary service, our volunteers provide much-needed support for over-stretched public services. They work at scale in the NHS, freeing up staff to dedicate more time to patient care and within communities to give practical help and support to people when they need it.

Our people are a welcoming team of individuals from every background who support one another to be their best. They are also some of the country's most compassionate and dedicated people who step forward to help make society better connected and more inclusive - where everyone can thrive.

We're currently looking for a part-time Service Administrator to join our team on a fixed-term contract until the 31st March 2022.
