Putting it all together: A Brief Example
Below is a fictional advertisement for a volunteering role and position description at Animal Alliance. We have used the first three sections from Volunteering Australia’s guide to role descriptions to help illustrate a supporting role description. We hope this can help you better understand how to implement some of the changes from our checklist.
The different colours highlight where potentially unclear information has been expanded upon and made more accessible.
Please note that this example is for explanatory purposes and is not intended to reflect all of the requirements of a volunteering role listing!
- Accessible and clearly articulated role and descriptions are only the first step in a process of continual learning and improvement!
- Simple changes in language and communication can make volunteer role listings and descriptions more accessible to all volunteers.
