Your volunteers bring with them enthusiasm, skills and experiences, flexibility, fresh ideas and new ways of working. Whether they offer a regular commitment, one-off, occasional or seasonal help, every volunteer has a unique contribution to make.
Our service to prospective volunteers ensures that we match individuals to opportunities that are likely to suit both them and your organisation. You will need to register on Volunteer Connect. Once registered, you will be in control of your vacancies and be able to respond to and search for interested volunteers. We will be at hand to guide and advise should there be any difficulties.
Through regular recruitment sessions, and a drop-in facility, we will assist prospective volunteers to register on the system and search for suitable vacancies, being at hand to guide and advise.
We will also help with quality recruitment, advice and promotion for your organisation vacancies and activities through the use of social media, local listings, special events and campaigns to promote your opportunities as appropriate.
Planning needs to take place before recruiting for a volunteer opportunity, so before adding your vacancies to Volunteer Connect, do use our information sheet on planning an opportunity.
Volunteer Management is important in recruiting and retaining volunteers – we can assist your organisation with supporting and managing volunteers and have further information available on our Managing Volunteers section of the Supporting pages.
