Lynne joined Voluntary Centre Services in 2009, following a career break to care for a family member. She hoped to update her skills through volunteering, becoming a Do-it Volunteer Advisor in our Lincoln office. In this role she processed volunteer applications received through Do-it.org, the national volunteering database.
Lynne was employed as a part time Project Support Officer in 2014 as part of the ERDF Third Sector SME Support Programme, although she continues to volunteer with us on her days off! In her staff role, Lynne supports the varied day to day operation of VCS Lincoln in many ways, from being the friendly face greeting visitors at Reception and providing hospitality for events to office management, to being the first point of contact for enquiries.
Lynne is also member of the team supporting the volunteer brokerage aspect of VCS’s work: she oversees our team of volunteers, manages course bookings, maintains the Vbase database of volunteers and volunteering opportunities and collects statistics for monitoring and reporting. Lynne also produces mail-shots to our clients, sharing information about local training, funding and volunteering opportunities as well as providing administrative support for our ERDF and Employer Supported Volunteering projects.
