Work experience and volunteering
Spending time doing unpaid work placements or volunteering is a great way to get ahead and find a job. New experiences in different workplaces can help you decide what you really want to do as well as showing potential employers your commitment to work. It is also a great way to refresh or learn new skills and make contacts that could lead to future employment.
Winchester City Council works Community First: Winchester to offer volunteering opportunities across the district. Many organisations have volunteer programmes offering one-off or regular opportunities for volunteers. Alternatively if there is an organisation that particularly interests you, contact them directly to find out what opportunities they offer.
