Recruitment & Selection

Volunteer recruitment and selection strategies are planned, consistent and meet the needs of the organisation and volunteers.

  • If the organisation recruits volunteers, it uses planned approaches to attract volunteers with relevant interests, knowledge, skills or attributes.

  • Potential volunteers are provided with relevant information about the organisation, the volunteer role and the recruitment and selection process.

  • Volunteers are selected based on interest, knowledge, and skills or attributes relevant to the role and consistent with anti-discrimination legislation.

  • Screening processes are applied to volunteer roles that help maintain the safety and security of service users, employees, volunteers and the organisation.
