Volunteers are more often than not the backbone of charities and many organisations wouldn't be able to operate effectively without them. The Charity Commission claims that over half of the registered charities are run entirely by volunteers. Increasingly it is recognised that volunteering is a valuable resource and should be managed and supported as effectively as possible.
When involving volunteers there is much to consider, such as how to recruit and manage volunteers. You might already have a developed a volunteering programme or you might be new to involving volunteers in your organisation. JVN runs training on all aspects of volunteer involvement and volunteer management at periodic intervals. We also run bi-annual Volunteer Management Seminars around one volunteering theme. For information on the next training or seminars please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 8203 6427.
Our overarching aim is to help you find potential volunteers and once you have recruited them we hope you will look after them and keep them for a long time to come!
Please click here to register your organisation on our website and post volunteering roles that all our volunteers will be able to view.
From experience we know that voluntary organisations compete for attention so it is important to excite potential volunteers about your cause and how they can contribute to your charities’ overall mission.
After you registered your organisation on the JVN website you can post a volunteering opportunity. Be clear on the kind of tasks involved, the skills and time required and how flexible you can be on requirements.
It is free to register and upload your volunteering roles on the JVN website but for JVN Member organisations we go the extra mile to find the volunteer they are looking for. Please click here to find more about what benefits Membership might bring to your charity.
If you are posting a Trustee role with us then we recommend you to also e-mail a role description to email@example.com so we can search our list of potential trustees.
