So How Does it Work?
Register as a provider in as little as 10 minutes.
You will then immediately be able to create, publish and manage your opportunities.
You will also be able to:
- Manage registrations of potential volunteers.
- Manage recruitment, selection and communications with volunteers.
- Schedule training sessions and manage attendance.
- Verify volunteers’ hours and obtain their feedback.
- Manage and report on all the relevant data associated with the above securely.
All opportunities created on opportunities.volunteerglasgow.org require to be checked and authorised by a member of our Volunteering Team prior to publication. We will endeavour to ensure this happens within 3 working days. We will not normally advertise your opportunities if any of the following applies:
- The opportunity cannot be undertaken in the Glasgow local authority area and/or does not benefit Glasgow LAA residents: you can find details of our sister Volunteer Centre/Third Sector Interface services across Scotland on the Voluntary Action Scotland web site
- The opportunity is provided by a profit-making, private sector company.
- The opportunity and/or provider does not appear to be compliant with health & safety, charity, protection of vulnerable groups and/or any other relevant legislation.
- The opportunity and/or provider does not appear to have appropriate insurance cover in place.
- The opportunity is not – in our view – an appropriate volunteering role.
- The advert and/or opportunity is poorly designed and is unlikely to offer a quality experience.
