Recruitment is carried out when a number of placements become available – there is no set recruitment period during the year. We aim to provide the right placement for each volunteer and opportunities for a diverse range of people. We do not recruit on a first-come, first-served basis. During recruitment periods, application forms held on file are considered and the most suitable applicants for a particular role are invited for an informal chat. During this session we explain more about the volunteering opportunities available and find out about why applicants want to volunteer.
