Recruitment Manager (Volunteer role)

Your new volunteer role As a Recruitment Manager you’ll support 2 directorates, recruiting for the year-round volunteers who make up the Pride in London ‘Core Team’.  You’ll also be heavily involved in recruiting the ‘on-the-day’ volunteers for the Pride Parade. For ‘Core Team’ recruitment you’ll be working with your directorates to plan resources and ensure that they have a great pool of candidates to interview.  You’ll be involved with writing job descriptions, managing roles and candidates in the recruitment system and providing support for interviews and selection decisions.

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 and training of hundreds of people who give up their time to be part of one of the biggest LGBT+ community events in the world.

As part of the Volunteer Engagement 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 4hrs 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. What you’ll get joining Pride in London

  • An opportunity to get new and relevant professional experience
  • A chance to broaden your social and professional networks
  • Play an important part in delivering the Pride in London event

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.
