Advertise Your Opportunities
Our philosophy is to promote volunteering opportunities as widely as possible.
Advertising your volunteering opportunities on our search site is free. There are two different ways you can advertise, Locally or Centrally. Full details on each process is available below. To be listed on the opportunity search all opportunities must be based in Scotland and we ask organisations to review and agree to the terms of the Volunteer Charter before advertising.
Here's how you can advertise you opportunities
How volunteers apply for your opportunities
On each opportunity page there is a ‘I want to volunteer’ button for volunteers to register interest. Here they will complete a form and once submitted a notification email will be sent to the designated contact for the opportunity. It is the responsibility of the opportunity contact to respond to volunteer enquiries. Volunteer Scotland do not manage or respond to these on behalf of organisations.
Updating or Removing opportunities
Volunteer Scotland do not directly manage or advertise opportunities on behalf of organisations and are not responsible for the content of advertisements. The opportunities displayed in our opportunity search have been created and published either by local Volunteer Centres or by the organisations themselves via the Volunteering Zone. In order for opportunities to be updated or removed you need to contact the originating organisation that published the opportunity. Details of all local offices can be found here.
Alternatively you can click on the link for Report this opportunity on the opportunity detail page. If your opportunity was published using the Volunteering Zone you would need to contact the individual within your organisation that has access.
We are currently updating our Events process and will no longer be promoting events on this website via the Events List. If you have opportunities that are part of an event you can advertise the individual roles on the opportunity search. This is a temporary solution until the new event posting function is available. To do this follow the guidance above and ensure that you specify that the opportunity is part of an event in the opportunity description.
