We have a wide range of volunteer expert professionals registered on our platform. To help you get started, we’ve created some sample role templates that you can use. The template follows the same questions as our online form so you can prepare the text for your opportunity offline.
How to use the templates
To use these templates, simply download the word version of your chosen sample role and adapt it to describe your organisation, its cause and details of the volunteering opportunity. Further help and examples can be found on the opportunity form on our website.
Please note that this document has restricted editing (you won’t be able to edit the headings or help text). Simply customise the sections in yellow so that the role fits the needs of your organisation.
Once you are happy with the text, return to our website and use it to complete our online form. When the role is approved, we’ll publish it on our website and partner sites such as LinkedIn, and you will be notified of applications through our site via email.
