Whilst you’ll want to make a real difference when you volunteer, it’s not just about what you can do for others.
Here are some of the things that volunteering can do for you:
GET BACK INTO WORK
It’s a great way to get a reference and fill gaps in your work experience. You can also try out different types of work to get a taster – which can really help you if you’re looking for a job or want to change direction.
IMPROVE YOUR CONFIDENCE
You’ll learn and do things that you might not normally get the chance to – this can be a real confidence boost.
MEET NEW PEOPLE
You’ll probably meet people from different cultures and backgrounds that you might not normally. Volunteering with people who are as passionate about improving the opportunities for you people, as you are, is a great way to meet like-minded people.
GIVE YOUR CV A BOOST
Time Bank recently did a survey of some of the UK’s leading businesses and 73%* said they’d employ someone who’s volunteered over someone who hasn’t.
