Attracting and recruiting

Recruiting and selecting volunteers involves more than just advertising for volunteers and processing their applications. To attract volunteers who fit in well with your organisation and contribute to your programs you need to know what sort of volunteer roles you need and, importantly, the kind of people that you would like to have in those roles. You also need to make sure that your organisation's culture, programs and processes are set up to attract these kinds of volunteers, and keep them for the longer term.

This section looks at some of the key issues and tasks involved in getting ready to recruit volunteers, running a recruitment campaign and selecting prospective volunteers.
