We understand your organisation offers volunteers the opportunity to feel empowered by their work. Providing an environment that is exciting and rewarding will help you to get the best from your volunteers and ultimately the best for your organisation.
HEIapply is empowering organisations worldwide to be better at streamlining application processes. Our intuitive online system is designed to complement and enhance your processes, enabling the ultimate applicant journey.

The Challenge


Kind-hearted volunteers often come from various backgrounds and with host of different skills ready and eager to make the best use of them. Obtaining the correct information from your applications is key to ensuring that you can get the right volunteer for the right post at the right time.


As if this wasn’t complex enough, the applications process is intricate and varied often requiring dbs and identification information from the beginning. With high levels of manual effort involved and lower levels of customer engagement,

charities and non-profit organisations are at risk of falling short on delivering the applicant journey the modern day applicant expects.

Our Solution

We recognise the need for Charities and Non-profit organisations to operate efficiently, effectively and competitively. We know that speed and cost efficiency are hugely important.

That’s why we work with you to ensure that we have all the vital ingredients to create your perfect application solution at a budget that works for you.

Common Questions asked by charities and non-profit organisations

  • Is it possible for Admin to send a bulk email to a selection of applicants?

    Yes it is! The Bulk Email functionality includes creating an Email List using filters that you apply to the data already within the system. You can apply one or as many filters as required to refine or widen the selection of applicants. There is no need to import CSV's, as all applicant email information already exists inside HEIapply.
  • Is it possible to display a link to the relevant form on the school's website?

    Yes! You can embed the forms generated by HEIapply on your school's website and link to the HEIapply applicant portal on any relevant page of the website.
  • Are admin staff able to search, filter, report and export data out of the system?

    Yes! Your admissions team is able to apply searches and filters to run reports on the data inside HEIapply and export the results to csv or pdf format
  • Is it possible for admin staff to respond directly to a private message?

    Both the applicant and admin portals come with an in-built communications inbox meaning both parties are able to keep up to date with the progress of the application process. Here admin staff, once logged in to the dashboard, can simply select the applicant they wish to make contact with a reply to them directly and privately.
  • Can admin progress an applicant quickly through a standard process with automated notifications?

    Yes! With HEIapply you can pre-define a standard process for each application route which translates to the Application Progress Meter inside each application received by your admissions team. When an admin progresses the application through the stages, automated email notifications are sent out to the applicants and their parents to update them.
  • A volunteer has changed their mind and wishes to withdraw their application. How do they do this?

    It is possible to withdraw the application at anytime. The volunteer can simply use the communication inbox to convey this information to the admin staff, who will then be able to make all the necessary arrangements.
  • A volunteer has forgotten their password. How is access regained?

    Simply go to the login page and click on forgot password, enter the email address that was used when setting up the account and click send. An email will be sent to that email address with a web link that can be followed to reset the password.
  • A volunteer has made a mistake on the application form, but after it has been submitted. How do they rectify the error?

    This is where the communications inbox comes into play. When logged into the system, the volunteer is able to send a message to the admin team informing them of the mistake. Any replies from the admin team will be listed here as well.
  • A volunteer needs to contact the admin team regarding a question on the application form. Can they do this?

    Yes they can! The Applicant Portal comes with an inbuilt Communication Inbox for every applicant. Here the volunteer can see a log of all communication (including emails, letters or instant messages) with your administration team and also send new instant messages, should they have any questions or concerns.
  • Can a volunteer resume with an application they have already started?

    Yes! The HEIapply Applicant Portal is designed to create an easy and seamless applicant journey. The volunteer can register, begin filling out an application and return to it later. Applications are always saved so that the volunteer can resume later and continue on from where they stopped.
