How to Recruit Through Us
To help organisations with the recruitment of volunteers across Hertfordshire, #TeamHerts Volunteering (#THV) have linked-up with the national volunteering website Do-it.org to advertise/promote volunteering roles.
#THV will promote your volunteering roles to thousands of people across Hertfordshire. For us to be able to do this we need you to upload your roles to Do-it.org and assign us as an admin. This process will allow you to promote to a wider audience and increase your reach.
You can promote your roles on the Do-it.org website by following our quick and easy guides:

Once you have signed up to Do-it, you can create brief role descriptions for each of your positions and Do-it will automatically create an easy to use ‘Register your interest’ button for volunteers.
The benefit of using Do-it is that all volunteers who enquire with us at #THV are automatically signposted to that website. Therefore, any volunteers who register with #TeamHerts Volunteering in your area will see your roles. Additionally, if your roles are remote, then they will be seen by a national audience rather than just local residents.
The second guidance document above explains how to add #THV as an admin. The benefit of assigning us at #THV as an admin on your roles is that we will prioritise the promotion of roles that we are an admin for. We will also monitor how much interest your roles are receiving.
The latest #THV roles on Do-it will be sent out to our database of 7,000 volunteers twice a month and will also appear on our social media platforms which have a combined following of over 7,000 Herts residents.
Please find a testimonial below from one of our partner organisations which highlights the impact of Do-it:
"The East and North Hertfordshire Hospitals' Charity started working with #TeamHerts Volunteering a year ago, at which time the charity struggled to recruit and retain volunteers. With their support, we have set up a new do-it profile and have since seen a spike in volunteer applications for a variety of roles."

If your organisation is unable to manage its volunteer vacancies on Do-it, you can request support from Volunteering Herts CIC who offer this service as part of their membership package. Please see your local Volunteer Centre for more details.
Disclaimer: Please note that we ask all organisations that use #TeamHerts Volunteering for feedback. We are required by our funders to report quarterly on the number of volunteers recruited through #THV and the impact that they have. This means you will be required to answer brief questions on the progression of any volunteers which are matched with you, or that you recruit through the Do-it website and #THV events.
