It lets people try a role and see if it's for them, it lets them develop and make use of their skills.
It lets people 'taste' the role before committing fully so they start quicker, it gives more option for (light touch) volunteering and moving people into different roles, it lets people start younger and take the strain off staff.
Input from P & L and services, looking at each role and matching it against (EFA is an example of where it exists).
Everyone would need to start at a 'level 1' quick access/ low risk role, a database that it is intelligent enough, support for 'advanced volunteers' to take on more accountability, management training/ competencies and commitment to values and behaviours.
It needs to be part of the pathway, people get stuck at levels and it starts to build a hierarchy, we take on people who aren't suitable.
Using a database/ CRM, volunteers taking on more responsible roles, increase in the number of people who apply/ retention.
