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 email@example.com 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.

I started working at Mansfield CVS aged just 18, initially as an admin apprentice studying a level 2 NVQ and later progressing to doing a “Higher” apprenticeship (NVQ level 3). It was my first job and when I began working here I had very low self-confidence and no practical work experience at all! Due to the nature of the work, helping other charities in the local area, and the lovely people I work with, I soon discovered I really enjoy working in the charity sector and would be very happy to have a career in it – something I had never considered prior to joining MCVS.
