Role descriptions

To be successful in recruiting volunteers, it is important to plan and consider why and what you want the volunteer to achieve.  Brainstorming is often useful and should include both the volunteer co-ordinators and staff members who will be working with the volunteers.

On occasions an organisation may wish to create a specific role for a volunteer to utilise his/her specific skills which should be set out in the role description  and should also include the specific duties to be undertaken by the volunteer.
