VTS Vacancies

VTE Membership Engagement Lead

We have a fantastic opportunity for someone who enjoys a challenge, likes to negotiate, persuade, advocate and facilitate, and who enjoys an environment where they can make a significant difference to the way we operate. This role will particularly appeal to applicants who have relevant skills and experience in organisations who rely on harnessing the potential of unpaid but highly skilled and educated volunteers.

Members of the Valuation Tribunal for England (VTE) are central to the work we do. Their role at hearings is crucial in resolving council tax and business rate appeals. Like Magistrates, VTE Members are appointed by the Lord Chancellor and their role is unpaid. As unpaid members of the judiciary, they will stay only if they feel enthusiastic, motivated and engaged.

As an organisation we have a fantastic resource, but we are now in need of an individual who is able to extend and improve the services we provide to our Members. We are looking for an individual who will develop visible and successful approaches in delivering appropriate support and engagement to ensure the energy and enthusiasm of our VTE Members is harnessed.

This role requires someone who can think “outside the box” and come up with ideas that work to engage, enthuse and incentivise VTE Members from our existing cadre as well as new appointees. The successful candidate will possess skills and the confidence to take forward a plan to guarantee active engagement, developing and measuring performance indicators regarding our Members engagement at hearings and at training and to take appropriate remedial action when necessary, including recommendations to the President of the VTE to terminate the arrangements where the requirements of this voluntary role are not being met.

This opportunity can be either home-based, or office-based at our London location. If office- based, we are offering a salary from £51,504 to £56,594 dependent on experience or

£47,573 to £52,663 if home-based. You will be expected to travel and in order to work from home, you will be required to have a suitable unlimited (and stable) home broadband connection.

We offer 26 days leave to start, rising to 31 days after 5 years completed service with an interim step along the way based on service. You will also be auto-enrolled in the Local Government Pension Scheme (unless you choose to opt out).

To apply for this role, please send us an up-to-date CV and a Personal Statement outlining how you meet the criteria for the job contained in the job description and person specification. These should be sent via e-mail to hr.admin@valuationtribunal.gov.uk. Any queries should also be sent to this e-mail address. You should also provide details of your experience in dealing with volunteers and your achievements in doing so. CVs alone will not be accepted. The closing date for receipt of applications is 23:55 on Wednesday 15 March 2023. Interviews are intended to follow in late March/early April 2023. Please note that applications beyond the deadline will not normally be accepted.
