Recruiting Volunteers

Tips and Resources on how to recruit volunteers

Our Volunteer Manager Service

One of the best ways to get the word out about your volunteer vacancies is to use the free functionality of this website that is available to all Bassetlaw and Bolsover VIO's.

If you have not already done so, you can create a volunteer manager account HERE.

Once you have done this, you will be able to submit volunteer opportunities HERE and we will add them to our volunteer opportunities page, social media posts, weekly bulletin and in Bassetlaw, also via our network of social prescribing link workers.
