Make a difference by volunteering!

Research shows that 80% of employers value voluntary work experience, with 58% valuing it more than paid work experience. Volunteering can demonstrate motivation and initiative as well as helping you develop the skills that employers want.

Why volunteer?

You can make a real difference in the local community just by giving up some of your spare time to help others. Not only does volunteering give you the feel good factor, but it helps boost your confidence - not to mention your CV.

There are plenty of volunteering opportunities for you to get stuck into, both at the Liverpool Guild of Students and across the Liverpool area.
