Volunteering whilst you are a student can give you valuable transferrable skills which employers require from graduates. These include: commercial awareness, interpersonal skills, customer focus skills, teamwork, leadership skills and cultural awareness. You can speak to Careers staff at the Careers Advisor Drop-in or Careers Information and Job Search Drop-in about ways to find relevant volunteering opportunities. Voluntary opportunities are also advertised on JobsOnline.

The Careers Advisor Drop-In is held Monday to Friday from 10.00am to 4.00pm during teaching weeks and 1.00pm to 4pm during vacation.

The Careers Information and Job Search Drop-in takes place on Monday to Friday between 1.00pm and 3.00pm in Student Central on the ground floor of the University City Library.  No appointment is required.

Further information about volunteering can be accessed via Careers Online
