This is an action packed session filled with practical suggestions and plenty of opportunities to share ideas on how to recruit volunteers and keep hold of them!
Volunteer recruitment is a constant challenge for many organisations. This workshop will explore people’s motivations to volunteer and the barriers inhibiting volunteering. Equipped with this knowledge you will have the chance to critique current volunteer recruitment campaigns, analyse new and innovative ways for working and learn about current developments in the sector in Oxfordshire and how OCVA can help.
There will be opportunities throughout the session to reflect on your current methods of recruitment and volunteer management. OCVA’s Volunteer Co-ordinator will offer his thoughts on how to retain volunteers based on conversations with clients in the Volunteer Centre and the findings of national research.
We will also be looking at ways to engage with volunteers during Volunteers Week 2022 and how you can promote your roles during the week.
The course will be run online using Zoom.
