    Course Content

    Despite the constant interest in new and better techniques to recruit volunteers, the true challenge in the volunteer field is first having meaningful activities for volunteers to do. Without preparation you run the risk of attracting people who do not really meet your needs and therefore are the wrong volunteers for you; and having the wrong volunteers may be worse than having no volunteers at all.

    Included in the course:

    •    Motivations for volunteering;
    •    Developing opportunities;
    •    Methods of recruitment;
    •    Recruitment messages;
    •    Recruitment strategies.

    We asked people who attended these sessions previously, what they liked most about our training - here are some of their comments:

    • "Informative"; "Fun"; "Informal", "Meeting others."
    • "Lots of interaction and time to share experiences"  
    • "I like being... encouraged to find new ways of working with volunteers"
    • "Chance to reflect and look at how we can improve"
    • "Good to have time with team members to think about how we support our volunteers and focus on it without distractions".

    Who should attend

    Anyone who has, or is expecting to have, responsibility for recruiting/managing volunteers in their organisation.

    In order to offer places to as many organisations as possible, we are only able to offer two places on each date to members of the same organisation. If your organisation would like to send more than 2 people, please get in touch with us to discuss options.
