From our blog

In our latest blog post, Rob explores the importance of language when writing meaningful and motivating role descriptions for volunteers.

​

“If we want to retain volunteers, if we want them to achieve more, generate new ideas, be more motivated and work well with others, then we need to use more general language in our role descriptions. This could mean suggesting tasks they could do rather than telling them exactly what to do. It could also mean focusing more on the results we want them to achieve and less on the specific tasks we want them to perform.”

From our monthly article for Third Sector magazine

In this month’s article, Rob gives three tips for how organisations can improve their safeguarding when it comes to volunteers.

​

"If we want to retain volunteers, if we want them to achieve more, generate new ideas, be more motivated and work well with others, then we need to use more general language in our role descriptions. This could mean suggesting tasks they could do rather than telling them exactly what to do. It could also mean focusing more on the results we want them to achieve and less on the specific tasks we want them to perform."

On the road again

In the last few weeks it has been announced that Rob will be speaking at two overseas events in June 2018.

​

6-8 June, Rob will be delivering the opening keynote address and a series of workshops at the 2018 Minnesota Association of Volunteer Administration conference at Hamline University, St Paul, MN.

​

20-22 June Rob will be attending and speaking at the Australian National Volunteering Conference in Sydney. This will be followed by three training dates in Horsham (Victoria), Adelaide and Perth.

​

“I’m excited to be contributing to these events,” said Rob, also noting that, “It will be a brilliant opportunity to learn from colleagues overseas and share the great work happening in the volunteering movement here in the UK.”
