Recruiter Toolkit

The GoodJobs recruiters toolkit has been created by Charity People. The guides will help you to write a job description, create an appealing job advert, think about how to prepare for recruiting your first fundraiser and switch to virtual recruitment. Charity People can help manage your recruitment process if you need extra support.

How to write a job description

Virtual recruitment

Due to social distancing you are probably having to change the way you recruit.

In June we hosted an online clinic with Charity People - Switching to virtual recruitment. A recording of the session and additional resources are available on Utopy. We'll be rerunning the session in August. It is free to sign up.
