More often than not, skilled volunteering is flexible volunteering which gives organisations in Camden the opportunity to tap into skills and experience – mainly on a consultancy basis, or to complete a specific project.
And when it comes to recruiting skilled volunteers, there are a few options available to you in Camden:
- First and foremost, if you are recruiting volunteers in Camden you should add your volunteering role to our online database and search tool Volunteer Connect. Volunteer Connect is a self-serve platform which means that you can add / amend / delete your volunteering roles at any time that suits you, as well as get in direct contact with volunteers who express an interest in those roles. And it’s quick and easy to get registered and start recruiting volunteers.
- Comoodle is a sharing platform which gives local non-profits a way of borrowing and lending stuff, space and skills. It launched in Camden in August 2018 and is another free way to recruit volunteers with skills.
- At Volunteer Centre Camden we use Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Google+. (All links are on the floating toolbar to the right of the screen.) We are very happy to retweet / repost / regram any calls for skilled volunteers, and the easiest way to do this is to tag us so that we see it.
- Another option available to you is to take advantage of our employee volunteering matching service, Team UP which links you with businesses that have skilled employees to support what you do. This is a free service for local non-profits. Interested in Team UP? Get in touch with our Corporate Engagement Manager Cynthia by email or phone 020 7424 9990.
