volunteer recruitment and management

half day workshop


Are you currently managing volunteers or thinking about developing a volunteering programme? Have your volunteer management systems developed over time but you feel that they could be more coordinated, or would you like to measure how you are doing against national best practice to identify any gaps for development?

This workshop will provide an overview of the key areas for policies and procedures, and enable people to be able to identify for their organisation or group where development is needed.

As a result of this workshop you will be able to develop your volunteering policies to improve recruitment and retention and enable you and the volunteers to get the best from your volunteering opportunities.


Feedback from the previous course includes:

“Liked informal but informed presentation style. Lots of useful experiences an pointer from Becky and other delegates. A very useful course”.

“Good session. Made me think about what was good in our organisation but also what we could do better”.

“Very useful content that will enable me to implement better practice back in the workplace”.



This workshop, delivered by an Investing in Volunteers assessor, will help you to develop or review your volunteer recruitment and management systems across your organisation. There will be an opportunity to touch on good practice in the nine Investing in Volunteer areas: getting commitment to volunteering across your organisation, committing resources for volunteers, equality and diversity, developing roles, managing risk, volunteer recruitment, induction, supporting volunteers, and showing volunteers appreciation and recognition.

We will help you to:

  • Think through why you involve volunteers
  • How your organisation and the volunteers can best benefit from their involvement
  • Identify the policies and procedures you have in place and which you need to develop
  • Give you an opportunity to discuss in more depth a few of the areas that need work.


What you will get

Half day workshop, action plan, links to guidance and resources to help you, up to an hour of follow up
