We use Do-it.org to recruit a lot of our volunteers, especially for big projects like the festival where we need 40+. Do-it.org is a great website where organisations can recruit for volunteers by advertising their opportunities and volunteers can search for opportunities in their local area.
At Cadence we understand the immense value volunteers have and each volunteering experience with us is designed to fit that persons requirements. For example, if they wish to build employment skills we’d make their opportunity very diverse and would incorporate elements of hospitality, administration and event organising in so they can build skills. Some may just want to have some company and interact with others, so we’d offer them to work within large teams and do engaging activities like crafts or quizzes.
