Museum Skills: Recruitment & Retention of Volunteers
This one day session is designed for those who manage volunteers in a museum, gallery or heritage setting. It will be relevant to you if you recruit and manage volunteers either as part of your paid job, or in a voluntary capacity. The day will look at volunteer recruitment at all levels, including volunteer board/ committee members. This course is ideal if you haven’t attended a volunteer management course in the past. The day will provide an introduction to the ‘how to’ of planning, advertising and recruiting voluntary roles.
