As our final contribution to #AJobForEverybody, and in conjunction with Forth Valley College's commitment to volunteering, we're collaborating with our Third Sector partners across Forth Valley, Clackmannanshire Third Sector Interface (CTSI), CVS Falkirk and Stirlingshire Voluntary Enterprise (SVE), to shine the spotlight on Volunteering as a way to develop skills.
CTSI provide help and support to people living in Clackmannanshire who want advice on running or starting any type of charitable, social enterprise or voluntary group, as well as volunteering and community work.
Louise Walker, the Volunteer Development Assistant explains how, following a long period of unemployment from the corporate world and with with no relevant experience of working in the third sector, volunteering paved the way for her to gain her new position. Through her role volunteering with SAMH she was able to develop new skills, network and gain the confidence she needed to succeed in gaining this new role.
