I have specialist or expert knowledge in a particular field
Many charities and community organisations lack the resources or expertise that enable them to reach their full potential. Specialist volunteering opportunities therefore allow you to apply your professional skills to projects that will add real value to an organisation.
If you hold expertise in your field then Specialist Opportunities are for you. You can avail of an opportunity to share your skills and make a positive impact in your local community. The types of specialist volunteering usually available are:
- One to one supporting, mentoring or advice
- Delivering a bespoke workshop on a specialist topic
- Providing hands-on support to plan and complete a task in your area of expertise
- Strategic planning or board membership
Specialist opportunities are generally not suitable for graduates or those seeking work experience in their chosen field. The organisations advertising these opportunities need the advice and support of an expert with considerable experience.
Please contact us if you have a specialist skill or experience that you would like to put to use by volunteering.
