Top Tips for Successful Volunteer Recruitment

About this Event

The Clare Foundation’s Middle Leader Forums are designed to support Middle Leaders working in the charity sector. Some sessions are designed specifically to guide leaders during these unprecedented times; other sessions are useful irrespective of our current circumstances. All sessions are facilitated by experts in their field with vast experience working in the Bucks Charity Sector and further afield.

This session is a joint partnership between The Clare Foundation and Community Impact Bucks.

Hazel Finney, Lead for Volunteering at Community Impact Bucks, has extensive experience of supporting mainly small and medium-sized organisations in Buckinghamshire (voluntary/community organisations, and social enterprises) with their volunteer and trustee recruitment and management. Hazel volunteers with the Association of Volunteer Managers (AVM), an independent membership body that supports, represents, and champions people in volunteer management in the UK.

Top tips for successful volunteer recruitment

Lockdown restrictions have led to big changes in the voluntary and community sector. Many existing formalised organisations have had to change their service delivery from face-to-face to online, or stop certain activities completely, and a plethora of new informal organisations have sprung up overnight to tackle pressing community issues at a local level. As restrictions continue to ease, and we move slowly towards recovery, you may want to reassess how you currently recruit volunteers so that it is as effective as possible. This webinar will address the following areas, offering advice and guidance about best practice against the backdrop of COVID-19:

• What to have in place before recruiting volunteers

• Designing compelling volunteer opportunities

• What a good recruitment process looks like

• Support available with the recruitment of new volunteers, including those with professional skills (for example in marketing or finance)

• Key elements for onboarding new volunteers successfully.

You will be able to submit questions prior to the event, as well as during it, and there will be the opportunity to reflect on the situation in your own organisation.

Who should attend?

Anyone responsible for recruiting and managing volunteers, particularly those people who are new to it.
