What is the recruitment process?

You will need to complete an application form and we will invite you for an informal, relaxed interview. The next stage is recruitment checks (DBS, references and occupational health, where relevant). The final stage is to attend Volunteer Specific Induction Training. All of these checks need to be completed before you start as a volunteer.

The timescale depends on how quickly checks can be made and the volume of applications. On average, it takes 6-12 weeks.

We are not able to reimburse travel expenses for attending an interview, so we will try to interview you in your local area in order to minimise how far you have to travel. When you become a registered volunteer, you can claim travel expenses to and from your place of volunteering, including parking charges.
