How Volunteers Search for OpportunitiesSince we published Searching For Volunteering in May 2016, we've added several different search mechanisms to our site. The current list is:
The most popular page was causes, interests, activities followed by organisation/charity together with location. Searching by particular circumstances was less popular as was One-off events The idea of searching according to their skills didn't attract many people nor did keyword or "Google Style". We also logged a small number of people interested in meeting us.
What we really want to know is what routes attract "serious" volunteers - the much smaller number who apply for roles and end up doing them. This may guide our development efforts and might even make us drop some ineffective tools altogether. To that end, we are logging search/referral paths against outcomes and hope to have some interesting results soon.
