Volunteer Centre manager Denise Graham talks about Skills Share Herts
If you have professional skills and are able to help out a charity on a short term basis with a specific project or activity, or if you are a voluntary organisation, community group or charity needing expert help, then we would like to hear from you.
Accountancy, business planning, commissioning, database development, financial planning, graphic design, health & safety, HR, ICT planning, income generation, legal, marketing, mediation, photography, premises management, procurement, public relations, quality standards, risk management, social media, training and web design are all skills that could make a real difference.
In partnership with Volunteer Centre colleagues across Hertfordshire, we have developed a groundbreaking project which uses specially designed software to link volunteers with professional skills to charities that need specific help for short term pieces of work.
For businesses, Skills Share Herts offers opportunities for staff training and a means of developing, measuring and promoting CSR activities.
It can also demonstrate the company’s commitment to the local community which is important for staff retention and customer loyalty.
For individuals it can offer an opportunity to create a new career path, or promote personal development.
