Why should you attend?
If you’re looking for a career in the Third Sector, an exciting summer in the UK or abroad or to fill a few spare hours a week volunteering, then this is the Careers Fair for you!
The Volunteering and Third Sector Fair is a great chance to meet organisations offering a wide range of alternative opportunities, with organisations exhibiting including local and national charities, not-for profit organisations and international volunteering companies.
It’s an ideal event to find out what volunteer or paid roles these organisations have to offer, how your skills can benefit them and the wider community, as well as learning what skills and recognition you’ll receive in return.
