If your organisation needs help and support with recruiting volunteers, Mansfield CVS's friendly Volunteer Centre team are the people to talk to.
Organisations can share their vacancies with us and we will add them to our database for volunteer interviews, as well as putting the opportunity online on the national Do-It volunteering website.
How will my opportunities be promoted?
To advertise an opportunity with us, we ask all organisations to complete our registration forms. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request copies.
Once the opportunity is registered on our system, we will then give potential volunteers your contact details. One of our volunteer interviewers will arrange an appointment for the potential volunteers to meet with you.
Opportunities will be promoted via our website and social media sites, on our information boards at Mansfield CVS and on Do-It.
What is Do-It ?
Do-It is the national volunteering website which shows volunteering opportunities for areas all over the country. Volunteer Centres receive information on current volunteering opportunities from local charities that need volunteers. The Volunteer Centres then have these opportunities on their system, and can advertise them on Do-It too, by uploading to the website using special software called “VBase”. People who wish to volunteer can search Do-It for the vacancies in their area, and either contact the volunteer centre to find out more about the opportunity, or apply for the opportunity online.
Good Practice Support, Guides and Policies
We offer a range of Good Practice Guides and Volunteering Policies at Mansfield Volunteer Centre, for use by anyone who has, or is considering having, volunteers. They may be used either as a template for your own policies, or as a point of reference whenever they are needed.
More guides to come soon!
I started working at Mansfield CVS in March 2010 on the Future Jobs programme. My initial post was as a clerical support worker. My line manager was ware that I had studied Information technology at degree level, recognising the potential I had in IT support, I was given the opportunity to become more involved in supporting the computer systems at Mansfield CVS alongside the existing IT provider.
