    I really like the idea of designing volunteer roles around volunteers. As a small charity (running a village hall) we were finding it difficult to recruit new trustees / committee members. We found that people were reluctant to make such a big commitment. In response we created a new role, which we call our Helping Hands. We make a few suggestions about things that volunteers might like to help us with on either a regular or an ad hoc basis and encourage people to come and tell us how they feel they could help us. We now have Helping Hands who just make teas and coffees or serve behind the bar at our events, others who do a bit of gardening from time to time, others who put up and take down posters. My own role as a Helping Hand is to run their social media accounts. I do this alongside my day job and of course can do this from anywhere at any time.
