Adult Recruitment Workshop

Date: 18th July 2019 Location: TBC - (location within and best for Chester-le-Street and Durham City & District) Sections: Adult Volunteer


You may be aware that County has identified adult recruitment as a key strategy in their development plan. We in Durham City have also identified this as a key priority in our plan too. To support this, we will be running an adult recruitment workshop with the Regional Support Team and in partnership with Chester le Street District at Moor House on the evening of July 18th.

To help you get ready we are organising a series of workshops to help you get the best out of the BUILD campaign and to develop your knowledge of how to best recruit more adult volunteers. Each workshop is three hours and is supported by the Regional Services Team, and will help you to understand:

  • What the BUILD campaign is and how it will work
  • When the BUILD campaign will go live and what will happen
  • How to prepare to recruit more adults and what you need to do to get ready, before the public BUILD campaign happens
  • How to identify and engage with prospective adult recruits and what you need to do once the BUILD campaign goes live
  • How you should follow-up from the BUILD campaign or any recruitment drive, to maximise the chances of recruiting and retaining new adult volunteers
  • How you can use the ideas from the campaign for on-going adult recruitment
