As soon as you sign up, you’ll have access to the Goodsted platform. You can see who is in the community, what opportunities are available, and what individuals and organisations are looking for support with.

What you can do on the Goodsted Platform

  • View organisation and member profiles to learn more about them, their location, mission, vison, activity and more.

  • Filter members, organisation, and opportunities by skill, commitment, cause area or SDG to find the best suited collaborators, partners and activities to engage in.

  • Engage in opportunities tailored to your skills and interests. Support those already on the platform, or post your own to invite members of the community to collaborate.

  • Collaborate with like-minded individuals on opportunities and initiatives, progressing tangible social and environmental objectives.

  • Report on the collective activity, engagement and impact of your community and stakeholders through organisational dashboards.

STEP 1: Sign up

Signing up to Goodsted is quick and easy. Just enter your personal details to create an account. All we require is an email and password!

STEP 2: Complete your profile

Next, you'll want to complete your profile as best you can. This is so you can start receiving tailored suggestions just for you! Let us know a bit about your professional experience and expertise, what causes you're passionate about, and how you're open to engaging with the community. You can also link any existing other social media profiles.

STEP 3: Join or Register your Organisation

If you'd like to have your organisation featured in our community directly, simply register it through our 'Register Organisation' form. It takes just 1 min to complete - and will help you get started on engaging with your stakeholders - whoever they may be.

STEP 4: Invite team members

Registering an organisation gives you both a page for your organisation, and also enables you to invite your colleagues to join. Invite your team members to join your group - so that they can explore the opportunities available on the platform, and engage alongside you.

What’s next?

  • Now that you're all set up, you can post and support opportunities. Browse our opportunity directory to find those suited to your skills, or post your own to offer up your skills and expertise. (Note: If you're a social enterprise or nonprofit looking to source support from the community, post an opportunity to ask for help!)
