1-2-1 Surgeries on all things museum volunteer recruitment

Tuesday 25 May 2021
10:00 – 16:00 
Via Zoom

6 slots available (1 slot per museum)

About the Sessions:

Museums are successfully keeping in touch with volunteer teams, supporting their wellbeing, but many are also looking to invigorate and diversify recruitment. We know that museums are facing very specific challenges to retain and involve volunteers as a result of the current pandemic. Understandably changes in personal, work or family circumstances mean that some museum volunteers will not return when museums re-open.

We are offering 1-2-1 surgery slots for 6 museums with our Sustainable Volunteering Officer, Eleanor Moore, to support museums to explore their options for recruiting and retaining volunteers in the wake of the pandemic. The surgery sessions are 20-30 minutes long.

Who should attend?

Voluntary and paid volunteer coordinators and managers

Trustees or Management committee members with responsibility for volunteer involvement
