3 Volunteer recruitment
It’s important that a organisation understands what it is capable of doing as the result of having volunteers. Above all else, it’s vital that you understand the need, role and benefits of including volunteers who fit the profile of your organisation well. What is it your organisation is going to be able to do as a result of having volunteers? Be clear about what their role entails through defined role descriptors and know how they will be supported. Being mindful that volunteering offers mutually beneficial outcomes is key to successful recruitment.
