Interested in volunteering? Here's what some current volunteers have to say about the experience:
It was fascinating to hear the ambitions of young people currently at school e.g. to be a game designer and the extent to which their school can help them achieve that ambition.
Listening to their questions it made me realise how important it is for young people to hear from those currently in the professional work place.
It was rewarding to see the impact that sharing my own experiences had on the students. It’s easy to forget that they might have no concept of how an interview works or what it is like to work in an office or in a team of others.
The time went too fast and it would have been great to have been able to spend more time with them as you could see the benefit to them as the session progressed.
Generally just a great experience and one I would like to repeat!
who volunteered to learn new skills had benefited either by getting their first job, improving their salary, or being promoted.
would recruit a candidate with volunteering experience over one without.
of employers believe that volunteering can add to skills.
