Start your career


Volunteering is a chance to learn new skills and gain experience. It helps you to meet others and get used to working with colleagues or talking to people.

Although voluntary work is unpaid, it has many benefits:

  • improve your employability skills
  • build your work experience
  • improve your confidence
  • make a difference
  • meet new people
  • be part of a community
  • take on a challenge
  • improve your CV

You can choose somewhere you would like to work, and choose what days and times you would like to volunteer. Good places to start are local charity shops and ventures, including:

  • soup kitchens
  • animal shelters
  • archaeological and historical projects
  • countryside access
  • Lincolnshire chalk streams project
  • community hub libraries
  • children centres
