Do you wish to give back to your community, or the world, in any way? If the answer is yes, the volunteer industry may be right for you. Volunteers make meaningful contributions through their tireless work, whilst making their communities and the whole world a better place.
The volunteer industry is a blank canvas. There are a wealth of opportunities and fields for volunteers to work in. A large portion of volunteers decide to work in the charity industry. Most volunteers find a particular cause they advocate for and sign-up to volunteer for them. Charities in particular really rely on volunteers to help organise their events and fundraise. Notable charities include The National Trust, Cancer Research UK and Save the Children.
Volunteering doesn’t have to be some elaborate, life-altering decision though. You can pick up your life to move to Zimbabwe and build new schools for children, or you could just tutor a young kid in your community. That is the beauty of volunteering; the world is your oyster.
The workforce of volunteers is mostly made up of young people and graduates. Volunteering is a rewarding experience to be involved in before making the leap into the true workforce. However, if you make enough of an impression on the organisation you are volunteering for, they may hire you for a full-time paying position.
