Including volunteer service on your CV is a great way to get noticed. Employers are looking for people who are motivated, can communicate with a range of people, and can learn new skills. Volunteering ticks all these boxes.
Career experience
Unsure of your career path? Volunteering offers you an opportunity to try a new job without long-term commitment, and your work experience will look great on your CV.
Contacts and networking
Volunteering provides you with valuable opportunities to network with potential employers and change-makers in the community. It also provides a platform to help you practice your communication and networking skills - building your confidence and self-esteem.
New skills and training
Many organisations offer formal and informal training and upskilling for volunteers. These skills are transferable to your studies, career, and personal life. Make the most of these opportunities to benefit your community and further your career.
