Join NCVO for a free Small Charity Week webinar exploring practical steps you can take to recruit and retain staff and volunteers

The covid-19 pandemic fundamentally changed the employment and volunteering landscape. Recruiting and retaining staff and volunteers continues to be a challenge.

In this webinar the expert panel will explore some of these changes. They’ll discuss recent research from trusted supplier Charity Job and findings from the Time Well Spent 2023 research.

They’ll then explore what this could mean for small charities in practice.
