The most important facet of this role is revising and updating volunteer job descriptions and helping local hosts put together volunteer schedules for all on-site events. This role requires excellent people-skills and good attention to detail.

This role is perfect for someone who is naturally curious and can easily put themselves in other people’s shoes! The Guest Experience Manager is basically responsible for knowing what’s going on at all the walk locations so they can see what needs to be done - from updating our tribute page, to coordinating social media posts, to ensuring that hosts have up-to-date fundraising numbers on the day of the walk.
