Volunteering Fair 2016

On Thursday 20 October, Purple Door will welcome 45 charities and not-for-profit organisations on to campus for the annual Volunteering Fair.

The event, which will take place 11am and 3pm in the Third Space at the Students’ Union, provides a unique opportunity for students to start exploring their options when it comes to gaining career or course related work experience.

In addition to a wide range of charities attending there will be delegates from a local prison, the police, a theatre and the NHS, as well as a number of local authority departments. Purple Door Careers Advisers will also be on-hand to help students with their search.

Volunteering is one way for students to engage in a career-enhancing activity during their time at university. It empowers students by experiencing different career paths, developing their skills and gaining practical work experience, all whilst giving back to the local community.

So please encourage your students to broaden their horizons and attend next week’s Volunteering Fair!
