Volunteer: Volunteer Recruiter, Mid Ulster

Where, when and how often?

Volunteer Recruiters are needed across the Mid Ulster area including Cookstown, Maghera, Magherafelt, Draperstown, Portglenone/Clady and Coalisland. This role is flexible; we do hope you will be able to offer a few hours each fortnight and provide some continuity over a number of months, for the benefit of the people you are helping. Although times are flexible, reliability is vital.

What will I be doing?

The recruitment of a diverse range of volunteers to fulfil current volunteering opportunities is essential for the ongoing and increased support to people affected by dementia. This role is key to making this happen by working alongside the Volunteering Officer assisting with the recruitment of new volunteers locally at volunteering information stands, leaflet or poster drops and building local relationships with partners such as volunteer centres and other local agencies. Volunteer Recruiters do not have to carry out all aspects of the role, just what they feel comfortable with.

Is this role for me?

This role may be ideal for you if:-

- You are confident and enthusiastic;

- You have good verbal communication skills, by telephone and face to face;

- You have experience of, or an interest in, recruiting people;

- You have experience of, an interest in, volunteering and voluntary organisations;

- You know about, or are willing to learn about, dementia and its impact on people;

- You are happy to volunteer in isolation when needed, but also as part of a team;

- You recognise the importance of confidentiality, and can show this in practice; and

- You have the ability to attend events, handle/carry materials etc.

How will I be supported during my volunteering?

Alzheimer's Society is committed to supporting volunteers in whatever role is carried out. For this role, you will be supported by the local Volunteering Officer. You also will be provided with one-to-one and/or group based support and will be reimbursed your agreed out-of-pocket expenses, in accordance with Society policy.
