To ensure that CallER Collective continues to grow and provide this vital service, we are recruiting a CallER Collective Co-ordinator.

Working closely with the Head of Shared Resources and Community Producer for Volunteering, Enterprise and Training, the CallER Collective Co-ordinator would be responsible for the day to day running of CallER Collective, ensuring that it continues to meet the needs of the people of the East Riding.

There has never been a more exciting time to join the HEY Smile Foundation team. Our work spans across the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Sector (VCSE), as well as connecting opportunities with the private and public sector.

We are connected, joining assets to community knowledge, creativity and inspiration. We are helping VCSE organisations of all shapes and sizes be heard and play a part in solutions, not just highlight community problems.

We have grown significantly in the last 11 years but are still agile enough to respond to the communities need, not prescribe the same methodology ‘because that’s what has always been done’.

We are sustainable in our own right. Whilst developing others, we have ensured we had one eye on our own platform, securing £3m in assets and generating an average of £800k turnover a year in earned income to by masters of our own destiny and focus on the Wow not Woe in our communities across the Hull and the East Riding.

Covid 19 has provided us with an opportunity to share our way of working further, and in the East Riding we are seen as a community lead and the Go to Charity, now more than ever.  We are proud to say we now have the strongest charitable board in the region, and likewise we have a team of highly skilled and proactive charity leaders.

In response to Covid-19, we set up CallER Collective: a telephone service to provide befriending and companionship to people who were lonely, vulnerable and shielding throughout the lockdown period, delivered by a team of volunteers. It quickly became apparent that there was a bigger need for befriending across our region so we are now going through a period of development to decide what CallER Collective will look like in the post-covid world.

To ensure that CallER Collective continues to grow and provide this vital service, we are recruiting a CallER Collective Co-ordinator.

Working closely with the Head of Shared Resources and Community Producer for Volunteering, Enterprise and Training, the CallER Collective Co-ordinator would be responsible for the day to day running of CallER Collective, ensuring that it continues to meet the needs of the people of the East Riding.

This role is a Time to Shine internship, supported by The Rank Foundation:

The Rank Foundation is one of nineteen funders, foundations and philanthropists who are partnering with the Government’s Community Match Challenge scheme.

The matched funding element is allowing for the Foundation to significantly scale the Time to Shine Leadership programme. Between November 2020 and December 2022, we will recruit and place 200 Time to Shine leaders, bringing fresh skills and talent to the social sector, to help future-proof its role throughout and beyond the pandemic.

Time to Shine is a leadership programme established by The Rank Foundation and is currently in its tenth year of operation. The purpose of Time to Shine is twofold:

  • To enable individuals with the right skills mix, talent and work ethic, the opportunity to experience a 12- month paid leadership and development placement in a charity
  • To fill organisational, developmental and skills gaps in smaller charities by identifying a specific piece of work that can be completed in 12-months

The programme aims to develop capacity and bring about sustainable improvements to the charity’s performance whilst boosting employment prospects and building interest in career opportunities within the social sector.
