Volunteer Management and Recruiting Volunteers

Volunteer management, volunteer recruitment and volunteer recognition.

Hi Everyone,

Here’s another volunteer management idea for you on volunteer recruitment and also about thinking differently about your current volunteers as part of your recruiting strategies.

WHERE TO BEGIN A NEW VOLUNTEER RECRUITMENT STRATEGY

Want to know where to begin any new recruitment strategy? Let us dig a little deeper! Start by making sure that your current volunteers are still matched to suitable volunteer roles.

This is so often forgotten by those in volunteer management when looking at their volunteer recruitment strategies.

CURRENT VOLUNTEERS SLIP AWAY

Often, volunteers are still doing the same job as they did when they started. Volunteer managers often forget or do not even realise that these longer term volunteers can get bored with their role. Change is important for all of us in the work that we do. However, these volunteers rarely tell you that they are bored or have become disinterested in their volunteering work and then just slip away.

TAKE NOTE OF YOUR CURRENT VOLUNTEERS

So do keep in mind that it is important to regularly ‘touch base’ with your current volunteers and check that their existing roles and tasks are still interesting and engaging for them. Because people change, grow and develop, so make sure your volunteer assignments do too.
