The Charity and Voluntary sector requires people with wide-ranging skills from creativity, imagination, drive and enthusiasm to those with professional skills such as accounting, bookkeeping, to legal expertise. As a volunteer you might help because you have key skills to offer or you may wish to learn or expand your experience as a volunteer. By contributing you might learn new transferable skills or benefit from "giving back" to the community. You can also make a huge contribution to other people's lives. Popular charities to work for include Oxfam, Unicef and The Red Cross.

Responsibilities & Skills

Careers in Charity range from management to finance to pastoral care just to name a few opportunities. So, responsibilities and skills are wide-ranging depending on the size of a charity, its culture and its aims. You might need fundraising, administration or marketing and PR skills or have professional qualifications in bookkeeping and accounting. As a volunteer, you might again offer professional skills or lend a helping hand, and also, receive some training in exchange, such as retail skills. There are volunteering opportunities in charities, hospitals, care centres, schools and community clubs. You could work on advisory helplines, in fundraising or in the organising of events. You could mentor, teach abroad, or work in conservation or in a museum. Volunteer work can lead to paid work so do your research.
