Volunteering has many benefits, such as improving job prospects and meeting new people, and it’s more important than ever to have a wide range of experiences on your CV, writes Sue Dunmore, manager of Volunteer Centre, Swindon
In these times of increased competition for work, a situation not helped by the recent announcement of 800 job losses at Honda, getting involved in volunteering is a good way for you to stand out from the crowd and develop your skills.
If you are interested in volunteering but don’t know what it involves or how to go about it then why not come on our subsidised Introduction to Volunteering course to find out more?
The course will help you to:
• Understand the purpose and value of volunteering;
• Understand and overcome any barriers;
• Develop your skills for successful volunteering;
• Find out about volunteering opportunities and how you can get involved.
We can either hold a course at our Volunteer Centre in John Street or come to you if you have a group of 8 or more interested in participating.
If you are a volunteer involving organisation we can also run the course for you as part of your volunteer inductions.Dates and times of courses are flexible.
