Our new, improved digital services are open for business
As many of you will be aware Volunteer Glasgow has been working closely with partners and stakeholders for some time now to develop a new digital platform for volunteering in Glasgow. If you haven’t already then you can read our recent blog for more information about the new system and the added value it can bring to your volunteer recruitment.
We are delighted to announce that the new platform is open for business, allowing Volunteer Managers to create, publish and manage their opportunities whilst also taking advantage of the system’s volunteer management features.
So now it is time to create your online account by simply following this link opportunities.volunteerglasgow.org and then:
- (in a PC/mac browser) clicking on the Blue Button marked ‘Need Volunteers?’
- (on a small screen mobile device) using the drop-down menu and clicking ‘register’
Follow the onscreen instruction to create your account and then you can start creating your opportunities. It is crucial to note that after Friday 29th September only opportunities which have been entered at opportunities.volunteerglasgow.org will be promoted to those visiting our site. So in order to avoid missing out on potential volunteers it is important that any live opportunities are in the new system before then.
Creating and using your account is very straightforward but everyone here at Volunteer Glasgow is committed to ensuring all volunteer involving organisations are fully comfortable with how to get the most from the system. We will therefore be running a series of Support Sessions at which staff can help you to set up your account and answer any questions you may have. These sessions will be here at our Bothwell Street offices on;
- Tues 5th September 10am-12pm
- Fri 8th September 2pm – 4pm
- Tues 12th September 10am – 12pm
- Fri 15th September 2pm – 4pm
- Tues 19th September 10am – 12pm
- Wed 20th September 2pm – 4pm
- Tues 26th September 10am – 12pm
- Fri 29th September 2pm – 4pm
To book a place at one of these sessions please contact David Currie on either firstname.lastname@example.org or 0141 226 3431
If you have any queries in the meantime, please contact any member of the Volunteering Team.
Our new digital platform is provided by our partners at Team Kinetic.
