Volunteering is a great way to enhance your CV, make friends, and boost your personal skills, whilst also giving something back to the wider community.
The Guild offers a host of ways to volunteer, whether on campus or with organisations outside the University. Here are just three of the many opportunities currently on offer:
Garden Project Volunteer – Central Teaching Hub
The Guild is inviting volunteers to join them for weekly gardening sessions around the Central Teaching Hub’s new campus garden. It is a great opportunity to get involved with a brand new project and experience planting, harvesting and general maintenance of the CTH Garden. So why not spend an afternoon learning some gardening skills and helping to reduce the Guild’s carbon footprint? All materials will be provided so just bring yourself and get stuck in!
In this role you will gain experience of sustainable project work, working in a team, communication and organisational skills. Volunteers will contribute to the maintenance of the Hedgehog Friendly Campus award, as well as learning botany and ecology skills.
Housing Procurement Volunteer – Crisis Skylight Merseyside
Crisis Skylight Merseyside is an outreach service that works with homeless and vulnerably housed people. Crisis wouldn’t be able to change so many lives without the support and commitment of volunteers throughout the year. More than 10,000 people give their time, energy and skills to help deliver their services, campaign, fundraise and provide administrative and IT support.
Their Housing Procurement Volunteer role begins in May.
Arts and Culture Volunteer – Liverpool Cathedral
A short-term volunteering role at Liverpool Cathedral’s high-profile summer exhibition and related events is a great way to gain experience in the arts and culture sector. The role will involve stewarding, ticketing and assisting visitors.
This role takes place from 21 July – 31 August with a minimum commitment of one six hour shift per week.
