Recruitment Manager - On the Day Volunteers

Your Pride In London 

Pride in London means many things to many people, it belongs to our community and it belongs to you; come and join the conversation!

Pride in London has a renewed sense of purpose to highlight the challenges still facing the LGBT+ community today despite progress. We are run by a group of volunteers who are passionate about equality and diversity and are drawn from all walks of life. Pride aims to raise awareness of LGBT+ issues and campaign for the freedoms that will allow all of our community to live their lives on a genuinely equal footing. 

Around 150 people volunteer year-round to help us deliver what has become a world-class Pride. It is our intention for Pride in London to best represent all parts of our community and we continue to actively encourage applications from diverse backgrounds, particularly women, People of Colour and those from the trans and non-binary communities. All applications are important to us so if you’d like to be part of the future of Pride in London please register your interest or share this opportunity with your network.

Your new volunteer role 

As a Recruitment Manager you’ll be the lead for the ‘on-the-day’ volunteers for the Pride Parade.

For ‘on-the-day’ volunteers you’ll be involved in wider outreach, attraction activity and events. In the run up to the Pride Parade the team will support with the onboarding of and planning the training for hundreds of people who give up their time to be part of one of the biggest LGBT+ community events in the world.

In addition we need someone who will be able to help us develop our Recruitment processes

As part of the wider team, there will be the opportunity to get involved in other projects that may be of personal interest or that help you build new skills.  

Who you are 

You’ll be passionate about recruitment and enjoy supporting other busy volunteers with their recruitment needs.

You’ll need to be comfortable engaging with a wide variety of people and communicating with hiring managers and candidates on a regular basis.  

It’s important to be comfortable using a recruitment system or similar technology and ideally to have experience writing job descriptions and interview questions.

With great communication skills, you’ll be happy to work both independently and as part of a team.

You understand the importance of providing a great experience to each person who applies to be a volunteer.

You’ll need to be able to commit to an average of 6 hrs per week and attendance at the regular Volunteer Engagement meetings on Wednesday evenings.  Currently all meetings are being done virtually but will return to be held in person in central London when we are safely able to do so.   

Volume of work will vary month to month but will increase as we approach Pride season.

  • A friendly and welcoming induction course and a variety of training that’s offered throughout the year 
  • An opportunity to get new and relevant professional experience
  • A chance to broaden your professional network

Our Culture

Our volunteers are driven and passionate about what they do. Putting on one of London's largest one-day events requires dedication and perseverance. 

Although a lot of our work is completed remotely, there will be plenty of opportunities to meet with your team and others throughout the year to not only plan what's ahead but to socialise too. 

We're looking for enthusiastic people to join the organisation so we can provide a platform for every part of London’s LGBT+ community.
