University of Atypical for Arts and Disability (UofA) is seeking to recruit a new role of Freelance Volunteer Coordinator. UofA addresses issues of participation, inclusion and accessibility so that all people can participate in the arts and creativity sectors. The communities we advocate for include d/Deaf, disabled and people with neuro-diversities who face barriers to participation. We particularly welcome people who identify as d/Deaf, disabled or neurodiverse to apply.

The organisation has identified the need for a dedicated role to coordinate our volunteers. In 2021 we had approximately 23 volunteers work with us across our Bounce Festival, Office Administration and Gallery events. We are proud that many of our volunteers are d/Deaf, disabled or neurodiverse.

Our volunteers are very important to us and so we want to recruit a coordinator who will support the recruitment of new volunteers and the retention of existing volunteers, and the training and mentoring of our volunteers in order to establish them as a strong and confident group.
