Activate your CVS Volunteer Manager Account

Inspiring volunteering within the Cheshire East community is one of the CVS mission statements. We do a lot of work with our CVS Member organisations and the general public in promoting and encouraging people into volunteering, part of this work includes hosting a volunteer recruitment area on our website. Here members of the public can register their interest in volunteering within the local community and apply for advertised roles. Organisations looking to recruit volunteers can activate their CVS Volunteer Manager Account and have their opportunities advertised with CVS.

CVS currently (April 2018) has had over 1000 individuals register their interest in volunteering through our website, with around 200 visits to our Cheshire East volunteering opportunities pages each week! Join the hundreds of other local VCFS organisations successfully recruiting volunteers through our website and add some more personnel to your team. 


You can download the Volunteer Managers User Guide here detailing the tools available for you to post your opportunities.


CVS Members can take advantage of the support available from their dedicated CVS Development Officer in becoming volunteer ready or implementing volunteer best practice.

'Finding new volunteers for our lunch club in Knutsford is notoriously difficult. I was therefore delighted to get two enquires in the first week of using the new CVS provided Volunteer recruitment pages and a further enquiry the following week. All these enquiries are being followed up and are all looking very positive. This response far exceeds anything I have experienced before from previous attempts to publicise our volunteer vacancies'
