Give back to your local community

Volunteering is a great way to support your local area whilst also connecting with new people to have your own development. If you are looking to enhance your skillset perhaps for a new job or new career path, volunteering will not only help you develop through learning, it will also provide you with a positive talking point during interviews and beyond.

How can I find the right opportunity?

There are lots of opportunities to volunteer in your local area, but to help understand what is right for you, you should ask yourself some important questions.  

  • How much time can you dedicate to volunteering to fit around work, family and other aspects of life? 
  • Who would you like to help, children, the elderly, animals or something entirely different?  
  • What skills can you bring to the role? 
  • What skills do you want to gain from your experience?
