Event description

Description

This training is suitable for volunteer managers and anyone with a responsibility for working with or recruiting volunteers. It covers the nuts and bolts of creating and recruiting to a volunteer role, such as writing a role description and managing the application process.

In addition to these practical steps of creating and recruiting to a volunteer role, the workshop also focuses on the underlying nature of volunteering, and how to use this understanding to better attract volunteers.

Topics covered include:

  • Writing a role description

  • Advertising and promoting your roles

  • Tackling the barriers to volunteering

  • The application process

  • Interviewing volunteers and making decisions

Learning outcomes:

Attendees will:

  • Gain an understanding of the motivations behind volunteering and how to tap into this for recruitment

  • Know the key barriers to volunteering, and how to remove or reduce them

  • Understand the need to avoid the ‘workplace model’ of recruitment, and make the process as straightforward as possible

The training will be delivered by Mark Restall, a freelance trainer and consultant. Mark has worked in volunteer management support roles for over 15 years. He has worked at both a national and local level, and prior to his freelance career was Head of Information at Volunteering England.

We would prefer you to book online via this site, but if you require an invoice please contact Mark directly: restallmark@gmail.com
