Volunteering today for jobs of tomorrow
Getting involved in regular activities through volunteering or taking on an internship is a great way to improve your employment prospects.
Potential employers look more favourably on applicants with volunteer experience as they know that volunteering requires commitment, motivation and energy. Volunteering often involves the kind of environments where initiative, leadership and a can-do attitude are critical. Volunteering of any kind develops:
- your capacity to communicate with people
- your ability to identify problems and find solutions
- your ability to handle pressure
- your ability to work independently and/or as part of a team
- your capacity to prioritise
Our volunteers are vital to our ongoing success so take the opportunity to get involved and be part of something big.
