Following a busy period of recruitment, we are delighted to confirm a number of appointments within the Volition and LOPF teams.

Third Sector Advocate and Representatives Relationship Officer
This is a really exciting new role focused on supporting representation and advocacy amongst our diverse membership, to help tackle some of the most pressing health issues in Leeds and to support the vital work of the third sector. We are finalising the appointment of someone who will be employed by LOPF to hopefully take up the role in early November, bringing a wealth of relevant experience.

Leeds Third Sector Outbreak Plan Coordinator
Stacey Taylor has been appointed into this vital role and will join us on 29 October from her current position as Peer Support Coordinator at Leeds City Council. Stacey will work closely in a multi-agency environment to develop and coordinate Leeds’ Third Sector Outbreak Plan, which aims to ensure that our city response meets the needs of diverse communities, communities of interest and those who are at greater risk, or more vulnerable, to COVID-19.

Operations Manager
Karen Fenton has been appointed into the role of Volition Operations Manager, a key role for Forum Central and Volition in building strategic representation, effective communication and partnership working. Many of you will know Karen, who joined us in 2019 from LYPFT as the Mental Health and Physical and Sensory Impairment Development Worker. We are in the process of reviewing our requirements for our Mental Health and PSI specialisms with the Volition Board, with the aim of recruiting as soon as possible. Members can continue to link in with Karen and Daisy in the interim for any support related to the specialism development work. Meirav Sasson will be providing interim support to the Mental Health workstream specifically for the next couple of months.

Men’s Health Unlocked Coordinator Post
Recruitment is currently open for a Coordinator to support this exciting and pioneering project, which will primarily reach men who work or live in Leeds and who do not currently engage with existing structures. The project will reach out through local businesses, word of mouth, social prescribing, housing, G.P.’s and other Third Sector organisations. It will have the strength of citywide partnerships with the benefits, knowledge and experience of delivery partners who work in a local context and focus on local needs.
