Successful Adult Recruitment

The first step towards a successful team is recruiting the right people. Our experience has shown us that people are more likely to get involved if:

  • they are aware there is a need for more adult help
  • their motivations, skills and interests are considered
  • they are clear about what they will be expected to do
  • they are aware of the learning opportunities available to them
  • the section/group conveys a sense of fun and success
  • the section/group is friendly and welcoming
  • they are asked to fill a specific role or task
  • they are offered the correct role or task for them
  • you are open about the requirements of the role/task (discuss it, show them a role description and offer to tailor the role to their needs.)
