Career Volunteer | Connecting good people to great causes
We are delighted to announce the launch of Career Volunteer, the new service connecting the best talent from the corporate sector with charities. Career Volunteer provides a range of services, all cemented by our ethos of championing skilled volunteering. Firstly, we work with corporations seeking to develop their brightest talent through employee volunteering programmes - placing employees as Trustees or skilled volunteers in the UK and overseas; secondly, we have various services for charities looking to access this amazing pool of talent, from free advertising on our Jobs Board right through to Executive Search and Selection; and, thirdly, we help individuals looking to engage with charities as Trustees, mentors or skilled volunteers.
We think the walls are coming down between the charity, corporate and public sectors in the UK. Charities have much to give the corporate sector in demonstrating how to build organisations around a meaningful and socially useful cause and how to make the most of scarce resources. Corporates have much to give the charity sector in releasing their well trained staff as Trustees, mentors and volunteers. And, more than ever, we are all looking for careers that are purposeful and have a positive impact around the world.
Career Volunteer exists to help make this happen. Our mission is to connect the skills and talents of people around the world with organisations in civil society best able to utilise them. Our vision is to see a world where skilled volunteering is seen as a normal part of everyone's work, encouraged and supported by employers and given due recognition by society as a whole.
So, if you’re a charity looking for skilled volunteers or Board members, a business seeking to develop your brightest people and cement your CSR values, or an individual looking to utilise and develop your skills, we can help. Find out more at www.careervolunteer.co.uk or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 020 7939 7442.
Career Volunteer is sister company to Charity People, the specialist charity recruitment consultancy helping people find their dream jobs and clients to find brilliant new employees since 1990 - www.charitypeople.co.uk.
