Many charities and community organisations lack the resources or expertise that enable them to reach their full potential. Specialist volunteering opportunities allow you to apply your professional skills to projects that add real value to an organisation.
If you hold expertise in your field then Specialist opportunities are for you. You can have a chance to share your skills an make a positive impact in your local community. The types of specialist volunteering usually available are:
- 1 to 1 supporting, mentoring or advice
- delivering a bespoke workshop on a specialist topic
- providing hands on support to plan and complete a task in your area of expertise.
Specialist opportunities are generally not suitable for Graduates or those seeking experience in their chosen field. The organisations advertising these opportunities need the advice and support of an expert with considerable experience.
