Volunteering with Birmingham LGBT

Birmingham LGBT  are keen for people to join their existing group of committed and enthusiastic volunteers.

Located on Holloway Circus, in Birmingham city centre, we offer a range of sexual health and other wellbeing services for the LGBT community.  Our holistic services range from regular support groups, peer mentoring, counselling sessions and sexual health testing and clinics.

Volunteers form an essential part of the team providing our services supporting the operation of the LGBT Centre.

Volunteers can also support the work of the Birmingham LGBT as and when required carrying out a meet and greet role at events such as the Shout Festival, Pink Picnic and Pride events.

All volunteers receive training appropriate to their role.  Those helping out at the centre also require an enhanced DBS check.

So if you have some time spare please feel free to contact our volunteer coordinator for more information.

Location: Birmingham

For almost twenty years, Birmingham LGBT has played a leading role in developing opportunities for LGBT individuals across the Greater Birmingham area and; over the last five years, has seen a process of rapid growth and expansion.

These are exciting times for one the leading LGBT charities in the UK as we continue to deliver against an ambitious strategic plan, and ensure that Birmingham and the West Midlands is one of the best places in the country for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans people to live, work and socialise in.

We welcome applicants from all backgrounds, lived experiences and sector skills who can make an active and positive contribution to the work of the Charity.  We are working hard to ensure that the board, like the Charity, reflects the communities we serve. We recognise the importance and advantages of diverse workplaces and communities, and we acknowledge under-representation in our board of Black, Asian and global majority people; people who are Romany or Irish Traveller, and people with lived experience of migration, those under the age of 25, people from the trans and non-binary community and disabled people. We particularly welcome applicants from those backgrounds, identities and lived experiences.

Additionally, we are seeking to enhance board skills around legal, HR and financial support.

For an informal conversation please contact recruitment@blgbt.org.

For more information about this opportunity, role description and person specification; you can download the application pack on this page.

We will not close applicants until we have a sufficient level of interest but do encourage anybody interested in the role to apply by 30th September 2021.
