Partnerships Coordinator - Volunteer Opportunity

The Kent and East Sussex Railway is not just about steam trains; it's a journey back in time, a living story of the Rother Valley during the first half of the twentieth century. As a charitable organisation, our core values revolve around reciprocity – where visitors exchange their payment for a memorable experience, volunteers invest their time and passion, and others offer support, grants, and gifts. In the midst of societal changes and the modern digital era, we are on a mission to preserve and expand this unique heritage.

The Role: Partnerships Coordinator

Are you ready to make history together?

As we venture into a new era, we are seeking a dynamic and passionate individual to join us as a Partnerships Coordinator. This volunteer role is not just about connecting; it's about weaving the threads of partnerships that will sustain our heritage for generations to come.

Your Mission

Showcase: Be the ambassador of KESR, presenting our unique offerings and values.
Coordinate: Plan, organise, and execute partnership initiatives that go beyond the ordinary.

Why This Role Matters

We are at a crossroads, where the charm of steam meets the challenges of the digital age. To keep our heritage alive and thriving, we need someone who sees beyond the tracks – someone who understands that our story is not just about trains but about connections, collaborations, and community.

What We Offer

Impact: Your efforts will contribute directly to preserving a living piece of history.
Experience: Immerse yourself in the world of heritage preservation and the magic of the Rother Valley.
Flexibility: This is a volunteer position with flexible hours to accommodate your schedule.

Qualities we're seeking

Passion: A genuine love for heritage preservation and a belief in the power of partnerships.
Creativity: Bring fresh ideas to the table – how can we connect in ways we haven't before?
Communication: Tell our story in a way that captivates hearts and inspires partnerships.
Initiative: Be the puppet master in the nicest possible way – drive initiatives and make them happen.
