Event description

Description

This is a one-day course identifying the key principles of attracting and recruiting appropriate long-term volunteers.

What will I be trained on?

The Advert: Identify how and where to advertise for volunteers. Learn the best methods, locations and procedures to advertise and get people excited to, not just want to volunteer, but to want to volunteer with you.

The Description: Does your volunteer role description inspire a possible applicant with a spark of new ideas and potential or does it faze past them like so many others? Create an eye-catching Role Description that makes people zero-in on your post.

The Route: What’s the best way for someone to become a volunteer in your charity? Learn how to outline the different paths someone can take and identify the ones that work best for your charity’s size, resources and type of volunteer activity.

The Interview: You’ve got someone interested and in the room, now make sure that the interview gives you the confidence they can do the role you need and also lets the applicant know there is a world of opportunity waiting for them.

Anything else? Throughout the day you’ll be able to ask questions, compare your experience with others, and get hands on with putting what you’ve learnt into practice. You’ll be able to put forward the specific examples you are dealing with to get an advice that is more than just sound theory but is a set of action points you can put into practice when you return to the shop.
