Educational Workshop Designer

At the Children’s Air Ambulance we have created a special fundraising club for Children and young people called #TheCrew. It is an exciting time for #TheCrew as we have recently reached a massive 1000 members across the country with an average age of 7.

We are now working to create a series of workshop learning resources to share with schools to spread awareness about the lifesaving work of the Children’s Air Ambulance. To support with this project we are looking for a volunteer with a background in education who would be able to help us to design the materials

Ideally you would:

  • Be comfortable with an understanding of the National Curriculum so that you can suggest ways of ensuring our resources are of a similar level and style
  • Be able to create content aimed at key stage 2 age group (7-11)
  • Have some experience of lesson planning
  • Be creative and able to help us design exciting materials and activities!

 

 

This would initially be a short-term project but we are rapidly expanding #TheCrew so there may also opportunities to support our team on a longer term basis.

Our charity Head Office is in Rugby Warwickshire but this volunteer role can be done remotely so you wouldn’t need to travel.

 

Volunteer Buyer/ Stock Management Business Development Advisor

We currently have 56 retail shops across the country ranging from discount stores, through to our flagship superstores selling donated products from our loyal supporters and customers.

We are looking for someone with experience in buying and selecting product ranges for retail high street stores and online platforms to support our small team on the overall process management of these products from purchase through to shop floor.

  • Are experienced in buying and ranging of merchandise

  • Have good supplier management skills

  • Are up to date with current market trends

  • Can analyse our current process and suggest improvements we could make

  • Understand stock management and shrinkage protection

Volunteer Warehouse Optimisation Advisor

Our warehouse space in Daventry houses our Online Sales, New Goods, Clothing Bank Stock, Asset Recovery Department and some office space! These are some of the fastest growing areas of the charity so it really has to work hard for us.  We need someone to help us make the most of the space we have, make efficiencies and help us get the best out of what we have.  Can you help us?

 

We are looking for someone:

  • With logistics experience

 

  • Who has worked or is currently working in warehousing and distribution

  • Has a good understanding of Health and Safety requirements

 

  • Who understands workflow management and can help us to maximise space and make improvements.

 

 

This role would be based at our Daventry Warehouse and working with our Head of Reuse. The amount of time you can volunteer for is very flexible but we would ideally be looking for someone who can give a minimum of 10 hours per month.

Volunteer Stock Logistics Analyst

Our charity receives a huge volume of donated goods, but we also move a lot of stock around the business to support stores with lower intakes.  We are looking for someone to analyse our data and processes and help us to become more efficient and streamlined in our approach with the goal of becoming both more cost effective and reducing our carbon footprint. 

If you have experience in logistics or supply chains and are looking for a new challenge and opportunity to use your skills to support a charity then you might be able to help us.

Ideally we need a volunteer who:

  • Is familiar with supply chain processes

 

  • Can analyse large amounts of data and suggest improvements

 

  • Can communicate effectively with people across the business

 

 

For this role you could be based anywhere and support us remotely. It would help if you are able to visit our Daventry Warehouse and some of our shops to see our current processes in person but you wouldn’t necessarily need to travel regularly
