Shape Your City logo

Many volunteering opportunities will strengthen your CV as practically all employers are seeking people skills, initiative and a positive can-do attitude. If you would like your time volunteering to enhance your career, it is worth thinking about whether the skills and contacts (potential references) you gain will be relevant. There are plenty of volunteering organisations that need help with administrative tasks for example, while others might involve hands-on work such as landscape gardening or DIY.
