Volunteer and Apprenticeships Strategy Manager

About Us
The NHM is a world class visitor attraction and leading science research centre. We care for more than 80 million specimens spanning billions of years and welcome more than five million visitors annually. The Natural History Museum's purpose is to inspire a love of our natural world and to help unlock answers to the big issues facing humanity and the planet.

We are fortunate to have the assistance of over 400 Volunteers, generously supporting activities across the museum. Our volunteers, from a myriad of different backgrounds, share our passion for the natural world.

Apprenticeships, internships and work experience activities are of huge strategic importance to us. Our ambition is to create a sector leading model to improve opportunities at the museum. We are especially keen to improve our work force diversity so our program will be mindful of groups that are currently under-represented at the museum.

About the role
A key member of the HR team, based in the iconic Natural History Museum in South Kensington, London, this is a career-shaping role for an experienced Volunteer and Apprentice professional.

You will review, progress and enable the Museum’s strategic approach to volunteering through a central infrastructure - to empower teams across the Museum to develop and run volunteering programs. This isn’t an operational role and you won’t oversee the day to day management of volunteers, but you will guide and support those who do. You will be the go-to person for all enquiries from staff regarding advice and signposting on volunteering.

You will also focus on the strategic and practical use of apprenticeships in the Museum. A strong advocate for apprenticeships, you will use all available opportunities to promote the use of apprenticeships within the museum. Whether that’s presenting at team meetings or working closely with HR colleagues to identify apprenticeship roles – a building block of a robust pipeline of future talent.

Most importantly you will research and develop work opportunities in the Museum, including work experience, student placements and internships. We would like to develop a comprehensive program of work opportunities and apprenticeships across the museum.

Across all areas the role will look at how Diversity and Inclusion can be embedded whilst exploring how volunteering, apprenticeships and placements can contribute to building the diversity of our staff team and those we engage with.

About you
• Experience of centralized structure and activity relating to volunteers, embedding the activity into the NHM including the introduction of a volunteer management system (e.g. Better Impact, Volunteer Maker and others) with super user abilities.
• Previous experience of establishing apprenticeship schemes and making use of the associated training levy
• Proactive, resilient and creative, you will be ambitious about establishing a sector leading volunteering, apprenticeships, placements and internships programme. You must have done this before in a previous role.
• The ability to act as a central source of expertise to support local ownership of volunteer programs
• First class people skills to establish trust and build relationships across the museum and with external partners, to design and roll out apprenticeships and placements.
• Experience and knowledge of the employee and volunteer journey, including their learning and development.
• Knowledge of current and future apprenticeship policy developments and a robust network of volunteer / apprentice peers in other organizations
• An appreciation of the need to manage data and systems in line with legal and best practice requirements
• Commercially astute and previous management of financial information with budget oversight.
• An understanding of and commitment to Diversity and Inclusion, applying the Museum’s Diversity Strategy and Action plan to volunteering, apprenticeships, placements and internships.

What we offer
• 5 days holiday plus 8 bank holidays
• Generous Natural History Museum Pension Scheme (employer contribution up to 10%)
• Free admission to our exhibitions and many other museums, galleries and institutions across the country, such as Kew Gardens, V&A and Tate
• Affordable membership to the Civil Service Sports Council which offers a range of benefits including a free digital Tastecard, discounted cinema tickets and corporate membership of English Heritage sites (including Dover Castle and Stonehenge). For more details, visit https://www.cssc.co.uk
• Membership to our Sports and Social Association (for a small fee), which includes access to our in-house gym and clubs such as football, softball and tennis and classes in Middle Eastern dance, yoga and Tai Chi
• Staff discounts at a range of local businesses and services
• Up to 50% staff discount at our shops and cafes
• Season ticket, bicycle and rental loans
• Eye care vouchers
• Professional development opportunities - We are committed to the professional development of our staff and offer a range of courses to ensure they reach their potential. We also sponsor professional qualifications and job-related professional membership fees.
