Delivery Officer

About the role

Were looking for a delivery officer (maternity leave cover)to join the Ramblers team.

With over 480 Ramblers groups and 150 path maintenance teams across Great Britain, it’s vital that we provide the right support, to give our volunteers the skills and confidence they need.  On any given day, you might be leading a project to better understand our groups’ digital needs, working with partners to plan a national training programme, delivering walk leadership training, or supporting volunteers to plan safe, exciting and inclusive walks.

Who we’re looking for

We’re looking for someone with superb project delivery and development skills, able to provide confident and expert volunteer support across a large, geographically-dispersed network.

You must be a confident communicator – as comfortable demonstrating how to use an app, as speaking on the phone with senior stakeholders, or delivering training to large groups.

You will use your project skills to develop and test new approaches, based on strong insight and analysis – and not be afraid to question the status quo. You’ll need to be self-motivated and resilient, with strong planning and organisation. Collaboration and team-working will be key.

There’s no doubt that change can be challenging sometimesYou will take the lead and bring people along with you – handling tricky conversations with a collaborative, problem-solving approach.

Essential requirements include:

  • Excellent communication skills
  • A progressive approach to new technology, and the ability to support others to adopt new systems
  • Experience of delivering training
  • A proven track record in working with volunteers
  • Experience of successfully managing projects or programmes
