How to Use this Website

Register as Organisation and Post a Vacancy

You will need to register your organisation with the website before you can post vacancies. The next time you want to post a vacancy, all you have to do is log-in with your username and password.

A. Register Your Organisation

  1. Hover over “ORGANISATIONS” in the menu and select “Register Organisation” from the drop-down menu.
  2. Enter a user name and password of your choice (no spaces, make sure to take note of your details) and complete the remaining fields as required.
  3. Click on the Register button. You will now receive a validation email to the contact email address you named in your registration. Click on the link in this email to “validate” it. This helps avoid spamming robot programmes from adding fake users to our database.

TIP: Once registered, in addition to being able to post specific vacancies, you will now also receive alert emails whenever a new volunteer registers as being interested in your organisation’s type of volunteering roles, e.g. working with the elderly, fundraising, befriending etc., so that you can contact them directly if you wish.

B. Log-In

  1. Click on “LOGIN” in the menu.
  2. Enter your user name and password.
  3. Click the Login button.

TIP: You can tell when you’re logged in to the site by the personalized greeting in the top right of the page.

TIP: You do not need to specifically log-out of the system as most browsers will log you out automatically when you shut down your system. However, if you prefer to manually log out, go back to Login – Login Organisation and you will see a Log-Out link.

C. Register a Vacancy

  1. After logging-in, hover over “ORGANISATIONS” and select “Post Volunteer Vacancies”.
  2. Complete all fields in the form, trying to give as much information about the volunteering role as possible. Please note that category and role/event title will appear in the left sidebar listing of most recent vacancies, so make the title meaningful without it being too long.
  3. It is imperative that you enter a start and end date for each vacancy as the system will use these dates to show only current vacancies in the vacancy search results!
  4. Click the “Post Vacancy” button when you are done and check that your vacancy now comes up at the top of the left sidebar.
