Volunteer Manager Job Description

Your are responsible for selecting, training, and supervising the volunteer staff of our organization. You are typically responsible for high-level activities and spend a lot of time working independently and making your own decisions. As a volunteer manager must also be able to communicate effectively with volunteers, paid staff members and clients.

Because this position requires several years of directly related experience, a volunteer manager is typically a high-level employee with supervisory responsibilities.

Volunteer Manager Duties and Responsibilities

The main goal of a Volunteer Manager is to ensure WeCanWin has enough volunteers to fulfill its service mission. To meet that goal, a Volunteer Manager must perform a variety of duties involving recruitment, training and program planning.

Recruit Volunteers

You will use a variety of methods to attract suitable candidates. You may post volunteer opportunities online or attend job fairs with the hope of meeting new volunteers. You will also interview potential volunteers to determine if they are a good fit for the organization.

Train Volunteers

Once a new volunteer comes on board, it’s your responsibility to provide comprehensive training. You will often conduct orientation sessions and help new volunteers get settled into their roles. In some cases, you will also teaches volunteers new skills.

Create Program Reports

Without the right data, it’s difficult to determine if a volunteer program is meeting its goals. Volunteer Managers collect data from volunteers and paid staff members, use the data to create reports and distribute those reports to key personnel in the organization.

Schedule Volunteers

You will work closely with volunteers to come up with a schedule that works for them. If the organization has a special event planned, the volunteer manager is also responsible for ensuring the right number of volunteers are available to handle the extra work.

Determine the Need for Volunteers

Some volunteers stay with the same organization for years, but others stop volunteering after just a few months. A Volunteer Manager must be able to anticipate these changes and plan accordingly.

Volunteer Manager Skills

This position involves a great deal of contact with other people, so you must have excellent interpersonal and communication skills. You should also be able to use tech tools to log volunteer hours, make volunteering schedules and create reports. In addition to these basic volunteer manager skills, we are looking for candidates who know how to do the following.

Core skills:

  • Recruiting, training, supervising and evaluation new volunteers
  • Tracking volunteer hours and using the data to create reports
  • Developing program goals and policies
  • Managing a budget for the volunteer department

Advanced skills:

  • Collaborating with cross-functional teams
  • Creating handbooks, training manuals and other program materials

About RemWorks


One Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02139, US

Mission Statement

We are a data-science-driven developer jobs platform helping companies spin up their engineering teams in the cloud at the push of a button. Based in Boston, Massachusetts, we are a fully remote company of 10 people who help connect world-class remote software engineers with world-class companies. We make the remote hiring journey easy and rewarding for both companies and developers. With RemWorks, companies can hire pre-vetted, USA-caliber remote software talent across 100+ skills in 3-5 days. We also democratize opportunities for remote developers from around the world by offering them high-quality software jobs with top US, Canadian and European firms. Our Developer Recommendation Engine uses AI to source, vet, match, and manage over a thousand developers worldwide. This, in turn, helps organizations save valuable time and resources as they build their dream engineering team in a matter of days.


When companies go remote, they get access to a planetary pool of engineers versus recruiting from a small pool of developers who live near their headquarters. They are not only able to hire higher-quality talent but also retain them for a more extended period.

But becoming a remote-first company isn’t that easy. Companies going for remote teams usually struggle with three things. First, although it’s easy to source average developers, it’s tough to find USA-caliber developers.

Second, it’s hard to evaluate and vet remote talent to figure out the best candidate. Organizations have a minimal idea about remote developers' fundamental skills and qualifications through a traditional resume. It doesn’t tell them enough about the foreign universities and the companies that a developer went to and worked for, respectively.

RemWorks’s approach is a vertically integrated solution that replaces traditional IT service company offerings with an AI-based platform. RemWorks has created the first and only Developer Recommendation Engine, a distributed team of developers sourced by software, vetted by software, matched by software, and managed by software.
