Are you looking for volunteers? Make Your Mark has launched a free website for heritage organisations in Scotland to advertise their volunteering opportunities.
The Make Your Mark volunteer portal is both a volunteer recruitment & management tool that you can use to:
- Advertise opportunities
- Communicate with volunteers
- Recognise volunteers for their contributions
- Report on the success of your programme
The portal gives you access to a large number of potential volunteers, and will automatically share your opportunities with Volunteer Scotland’s website and numerous local volunteering office websites.
The portal is totally free to use – the only condition is for organisations to sign up to Make Your Mark by filling out this short form! Make Your Mark is a campaign that aims to increase the number and diversity of heritage volunteers in Scotland, and joining the campaign will not only give you access to the portal, but also subscribe you to a monthly e-newsletter with top tips for heritage volunteer organisers.
If you don’t have any opportunities just yet, you can still create a profile and add a note for volunteers to express interest for future opportunities. This will enable you to build a volunteer base for when opportunities do arise!
To help you get started, we’ve created tutorials to talk you through using the portal. And you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
