Voluntary / Charity

Voluntary / Charity

All work, paid or voluntary, for NGOs such as charities ranging from overseas development to community work.

If you want to make a difference this kind of work can offer great job satisfaction. There is a vast range of roles working for charities and voluntary organisations and so a variety of skills are needed. There is no set career path and once you are working in an NGO it is easier to move into other jobs. To succeed you should be prepared to be flexible, show initiative and above all be absolutely committed to the cause of the organisation.

We have an extensive network of alumni with a wide range of experiences, doing all kinds of jobs. To talk to alumni members working in this sector, visit the Leeds Network
