Family Support Work has been working in Sussex for 133 years, founded by social-minded Christians in the 1890s; we have been at the heart of caring for families ever since. After the sucessful expansion of our team of Family Support Practitioners in East and West Sussex we are now working with over 400 families giving them 1-1 support as well as practical help. To support this vital work we are looking to recruit 2 Community Engagement and Volunteer Coordinators to increase our engagement in the local communities where we work.

Ideally, you will have a knowledge of volunteering in either East or West Sussex but most essentially you will be a confident individual who can engage with people from all walks of life.

In addition to coordinating the volunteers, you will work alongside the CEO maintaining and developing relationships with Churches and community groups.

If you are passionate about our mission and want to play a role in driving  our work forward we want to hear from you.

FSW values and invests in their employees’ development. Employee benefits include:

  • Matched employers’ contribution to a group pension scheme (to a current maximum of 4%)
  • 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays (pro-rata for part time)
  • Family friendly policies and flexible working
