Top Tips for Promoting Your Volunteer Role
Tuesday, 2nd April 2013 at 9:47 am

Recruiting great volunteers is an ongoing challenge for Not for Profits and a recent training session in WA, with Seek Australia – the managers of Go Volunteer – revealed the top tips in attracting great recruits to volunteer role advertisements.

  1. Be clear about how the volunteer will be helping – what ‘problem’ will they be solving?
  2. Make the most of your social media networks, ‘like’ your roles on Facebook or Tweet them and ask your volunteers or friends to share them too.
  3. Go Volunteer is a volunteer search engine, so using the word ‘volunteer’ in the role title is redundant.
  4. Well written opportunities will attract more and better suited volunteers, so dedicate some time to getting this right.

Go Volunteer will soon be launching a new website designed especially for volunteers to manage their details.

It says this means that volunteer involving organisations will get volunteer information in a very structured form when any volunteer expresses interest in an opportunity online.

All volunteer data will be stored in the national database and will be accessible only to volunteer involving organisations that the volunteers decide to share it with.

This new feature is made available to GoVolunteer by Volunteering WA through funding from Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.

Go Volunteer publishes a monthly bulletin with updates and tips on features of the website. View the latest bulletin here
