Buy now - An essential book on managing volunteers
We are pleased to announce that a new edition of the Complete Volunteer Management Handbook is available now.
In print since 1994, this new completely revised fourth edition is published by the Directory of Social Change in association with the University of Kent. It contains essential information for anyone managing volunteers. If you’ve just been given responsibility for volunteers in addition to your main role, or you’re a dedicated manager of volunteers, this book is for you. It will also be useful for those in other management and senior management roles to understand the work involved in effectively engaging volunteers.
Rob has co-authored the book with Rick Lynch, Mike Locke and Dr Eddy Hogg, all respected experts in volunteerism.
The new fourth edition of the Complete Volunteer Management Handbook will be published in October 2019 and you can pre-order your copy now from The Director of Social Change.
“A valuable source of information for anyone seeking to empower and support volunteers through effective management, enablement and support. The book is well researched, clearly presented and easy to navigate quickly.’”
Director of Volunteering,
Royal Voluntary Service
New on our blog
Rob revisits an article from when he started Rob Jackson Consulting Ltd, exploring the value that sit behind his work.
“I am passionate about volunteering, about what I do, about how I do it and about the difference it makes. I want to bring that passion, that enthusiasm to my work with clients. I want others to share that passion and enthusiasm. I want volunteers to feel even more passionate and enthusiastic about their work and the difference it makes. I want paid staff to feel even more passionate about what they do and the challenges & opportunities they face.”
From our monthly article for Third Sector magazine
In my last regular article for Third Sector online I look at the changes facing organisations if they want to stay relevant to volunteers in the coming decade.
“Today people don’t need our organisations and precious sector institutions if they want to tackle the issues they are passionate about. Social media, the internet and mobile technology are enabling people to self-organise and have a real impact on the things that matter to them. They don’t need long-winded application forms, two references, health-and-safety training, risk assessments and regular supervision meetings. They don’t need paid staff to manage them or strategy awaydays to direct them."
