Online recruitment

Promoting your opportunities on a volunteering website can be a good way of recruiting. As well as county, district and group websites, there are a whole host of other organisations and services that you could use to spread your recruitment message even further.

You can sleep while the website tells people what it is you are looking for. Some websites give you the opportunity to promote your section, as well as telling people how they can help.
