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 Doit.life 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 Doit.life and assign us as a co-admin. This process will allow you to promote to a wider audience and increase your reach.
The website below provides guidance on using Doit.life as an organisation:
Once you have signed up to Doit.life, you can create brief role descriptions for each of your positions and Doit will automatically create an easy to use ‘Register your interest’ button for volunteers.
The benefit of using Doit.life 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 guidance document linked HERE explains how to add #THV as a co-admin. The benefit of assigning us at #THV as a co-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 and forward you any applications that you might not have seen.
The latest #THV roles on Doit.life 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.
