A one-hour online session to help your volunteer role descriptions stand out, ensuring you attract enthusiastic volunteers. Cost: £10 per participant


Have you wondered why few people are interested in the volunteer opportunities your organisation is recruiting to? Or why you aren't attracting people with the interests and skills you're really looking for?

The way that we describe our volunteer roles can be the difference between no volunteers and a team filled with enthusiastic people. This session will combine some tips from the worlds of journalism and advertising with a lifetime's experience from the NCVS Volunteer Centre.

This session is suitable for staff and volunteers working with teams of volunteers. It will be helpful for those who are new to working with volunteers or those with some experience who are looking to improve their understanding.

We will cover:

  • Planning an opportunity 
  • Defining the role 
  • Defining the audience and creating a persona 
  • Using the right language and copywriting styles 
  • Call to action 
  • Next steps

The session will take place over Zoom, so please make sure you have access to this software before registering for a place.
