Featured Nonprofit Job: Volunteer Development Manager

Volunteers are important contributors to nonprofits. Without their hard work, some of the less glamorous work (preparing for an event, etc.) would be much more difficult. The latest featured nonprofit job on the NPT Jobs Career Center will give applicants the chance to work with these invaluable individuals.

The Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles (GSGLA) is looking to hire a Volunteer Development Manager to develop, implement, and oversee all components of an efficient and effective Volunteer-Management System for volunteers in all pathways and capacity building roles. Other responsibilities include:

  • Conduct a volunteer needs assessment survey in coordination with GSGLA’s annual planning processes to determine volunteers needed to ensure sustainability and growth.
  • Build volunteer capacity and engagement via collaboration with Membership & Program. 
  • Build volunteer capacity and engagement via collaboration with Product Program, Shops, Administration, External Relations and other departments.
  • Work in partnership with all departments to identify and create volunteer roles with clear accountabilities and needed skills sets.
  •  Match the skills, experiences and interests of volunteers with the needed skill sets and accountabilities within each department.
  • Oversee the Council’s efforts to “open doors” for the recruitment of new volunteers from diverse and emerging populations – use multiple innovative strategies and methodologies to reach adults volunteers.
  • Represent Girl Scouts in the community to foster interest in volunteer opportunities, increase visibility and identify potential funders and friends.
  • Regularly communicate volunteer opportunities with all active and inactive volunteers to support re-engagement in the same or new roles.
  • Participate in the development of council goals, budgets, and risk management systems and policies as they relate to the Volunteer-Management System.
Applicants must have a minimum of five years experience in volunteer management with demonstrated understanding of effective volunteer management/customer service practices. Proficiency with Microsoft Office products is also essential, as is a Bachelor's Degree in a related field. Prior Scouting experience is a plus.
