Volunteering is about developing transferable skills and gaining practical experience.
Volunteering gives students opportunities to enhance their employability and their resilience for a changing world of work. It prepares students for their own graduate careers or business endeavours.
The Volunteering team work with a range of charitable and not-for-profit organisations, who host students for volunteering. This is a great way to build experience and find out about other sectors.
