Interviewing new volunteer

Discussion in 'Workplace dilemmas' started by hipchic2, Feb 18, 2011.

  1. I have an amazing young lady who has applied to volunteer in our pre-school, she is currently studying for an Art Diploma and applying to University for Media studies. She has some experience with looking after her nephews and would like to become a volunteer 2 days a week until she starts University in September. I need some advice on checks, application forms alongside interview questions can anyone offer some guidance. I understand the procedures for CRB checks however I am unsure on what application forms and interview questions seem appropriate?

    Can she not just write a letter of application if she's only to be a temporary helper? I'm unsure as to whether you really need to interview her. As a helper, she can be asked to leave at any time, so I'd take her on for an initial 2 weeks to see how she gets on.
    Also, a relation of mine who runs a nursery always gets her interviewees to spend half a day in the nursery to watch how they interact with the children (but she doesn't tell them that). Apparently some don't .....!
