VOLUNTARY WORK

Potential employers value the skills and knowledge that can be gained through voluntary work. Voluntary Action-Leeds hold a volunteer bureau on a drop-in basis in the Central Library on a Thursday afternoon 12 noon till 5pm, in the room in the corner of the Local Studies Library on the 2nd Floor.They use a website called http://www.do-it.org.uk/ and their own local knowledge to try to match the prospective volunteer’s skills, interests and time available to voluntary opportunities.

OVERSEAS QUALIFICATIONS

We subscribe to an online database called NARIC whereby we can attempt to check for the UK equivalent of qualifications gained overseas. This is done by appointment with Keith Holdich on 0113 247 8269.
