Volunteer Management Course 2: Effective volunteer recruitment - **Places still available to book**
Created: 22/11/2017, Updated: 06/02/2018
When: 9.30am-1.00pm, Wednesday 14 February 2018 Where: New Volunteer House, 16 East Fergus Place, Kirkcaldy, KY1 1XT This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action Costs This event is free to attend but to encourage attendance and try and ensure a good turnout to benefit all delegates, we will charge a non-attendance fee of £10.00 per delegate. By submitting a booking for this event you agree to pay this fee for those delegates who have places booked but do not attend.
Cancellations can be received up to 5 working days ahead of the event, thus avoiding non-attendance fees. A cancellation will only be valid if we have confirmed it with you. You can send somebody else in place of a booked delegate without incurring a non-attendance fee.
It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.
**There is still availability for this course**
Here are some of the very positive comments made by previous participants, who attended this training last year.
"Found it really worthwhile"; "Really useful"; "Really informative"; "Thanks, actually really helpful information"; "It’s really great to hear other people’s negative and positive experiences"
"Good support services offered by FVA"
"Good to think about things from a different perspective"
"Chance to discuss questions"; "Liked group discussion"
"All very informative".
Despite the constant interest in new and better techniques to recruit volunteers, the true challenge in the volunteer field is first having meaningful activities for volunteers to do. Without preparation you run the risk of attracting people who do not really meet your needs and therefore are the wrong volunteers for you; and having the wrong volunteers may be worse than having no volunteers at all.
Included in the course:
• Motivations for volunteering;
• Developing opportunities;
• Methods of recruitment;
• Recruitment messages;
• Recruitment strategies.
Who should attend
Anyone who has, or is expecting to have, responsibility for recruiting/managing volunteers in their organisation.
In order to offer places to as many organisations as possible, we are only able to offer two places on each date to members of the same organisation. If your organisation would like to send more than 2 people, please get in touch with us to discuss options with you.
All participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
