Learn how to do it effectively:
Attend one of our regular online workshops – Live zoom session with a small group of peer volunteer managers. We will provide full demonstration of the system with plenty of valuable advice on making the opportunity advert the best it can be. We also encourage your questions so we can tailor the session to suit.
Next workshop dates:
17th March, 10-12
Watch a series of short video tutorials for an in depth, step by step guide on using our advertising system. Again with plenty of advice on improving your adverts ensuring they are inclusive and productive for you.
*Please note that there are a few minor changes since a recent system update that are not reflected in the guidance. The guidance is still very relevant and will help you.
Use our handy visual guidance documents for a quick reference. It might be just what you need to help you progress.

And build capacity with the Smarter Volunteer Managers Training Programme – You will learn and embed a new method which could make a world of difference, making your role easier and more effective.
The course will be hosted on zoom with 6 sessions that are two and half hours in length spaced over 3 weeks.
