Career Volunteer

We see a world where skilled volunteering is seen as a normal part of everyone’s work, encouraged and supported by employers and given due recognition by society as a whole.  Essentially, business as usual. We fulfil this through connecting the skills and talents of people around the world with organisations in civil society best able to utilise them, creating a lasting, sustainable impact.  Career Volunteer run bespoke volunteering programmes for companies that want to build strong teams with expertise, commitment and a passion for what they do.

Our job is to ensure that companies that want to engage in skilled volunteering are doing it for a real purpose: that they have long term, achievable objectives, and our team understand CSR from a corporate and charity perspective.  We work with companies to help them realise and achieve their aims whilst challenging them to always strive for more.  We know that skilled volunteering is more beneficial than just ticking a CSR box – it unlocks potential in a far more diverse, inclusive and impactful way.  We’re working towards a world whereby companies build businesses that live and breathe their values, helping to amalgamate CSR with company-wide objectives of talent development, employee engagement and community relation through skilled volunteering.
