Any other roles previously advertised here, but not listed here anymore are now filled. If you have not had any response to your application you have not been successful.

Any vacancies at Hope are advertised here and on Indeed, where you can see the Job Descriptions – https://www.indeed.co.uk/Hope-Centre-jobs-in-Northampton  and announced on our social media.

With regard to pay, the term PRO-RATA is used on our adverts. This means the actual sum paid reflects the number of hours worked as compared to the rate paid for full time. So if we say the full time rate is £25ooo, but you only work half time, then the salary paid is proportionate or pro-rata to that, ie half. If you are still unclear, contact us in advance so we can explain it to you.

Covid 19 has created new demands and made great changes to our work. Because of this we need new volunteers to fulfil new roles across our service delivery – or for existing volunteers, who can’t do what they did for Hope previously, due to changes in how we work, to transfer over to.  Please have a look at each of these roles and read the job description for each:
