SVP seeks part-time membership support officer

The Saint Vincent de Paul Society (SVP) is a Catholic lay organisation which started in Paris in 1833.
In January 1844, several Catholics met in London and agreed to form the first conference in England.
An inaugural meeting followed on February 12 1844.
From that first conference the society spread across all England and Wales. You may have seen the recent article about St Mary & St Romuald SVP celebrating 100 years of volunteer activity.
The beating heart of the SVP is its membership, with volunteers working in parishes across our diocese turning their concern for those in need into action.
Supporting these volunteers and recruiting new members is an essential aspect of the society’s work, which to date has been done by our brilliant Diocese of Middlesbrough membership support officer Sharon Pemberton.
Sadly, Sharon has had to step away from this role and SVP is keen to recruit a replacement.
This is a paid, part-time, home-based role (15 hours per week – two days equivalent) working as part of the SVP membership team to support member recruitment and development, provide general support for members and be the link between groups and the charity’s national office.
It requires the ability to travel around the diocese to make recruitment appeals, work with existing groups, attend meetings and meet with interested parties where appropriate.
Having your own transport is essential. Travel expenses are also paid. For further information and details how to apply, contact head of membership Lance Philpott at
The closing date for applications is Sunday April 28.
