Volunteer Job Descriptions

A job description gives the volunteer guidance and a clear understanding of what is involved in carrying out their assigned responsibilities.

It is critical that the club and committee ensure that it has written job descriptions for each position or role needing to be filled around the club. Generally this is the responsibility of the volunteer coordinator. 

Ideally, the job description should include:

  • Job Title
  • Position Objective
  • Terms of Voluntary Involvement
  • Duties
  • Essential Skills/Qualifications
  • Place of Work
  • Other Relevant Documents
  • Declaration of Understanding

Volunteers need to know exactly what is required of them and in turn, the club needs to be aware of the tasks being carried out by its volunteers. When writing a job description make sure you include all of the duties and responsibilities that is the volunteer will be involved in, no matter how small or mundane the task is.

It is important to include hours and the time requirements for each role as this allows volunteers to identify whether they have enough free time to give to the role.
