These can include; a lack of work experience, studying at particular not looked at by major organisations, and not having strong personal networks in industry. A volunteer scheme that allows graduates to both gain experience, and open a door that may currently be shut to them could be a way to begin to tackle the many employment challenges.
It is our hope that the government will take notice of the merits of encouraging volunteering as a credible solution, and so we have began by making this happen for ourselves.
If you are a recent graduate looking for some work experience or an organisation willing to take on some graduates as volunteers please drop us an email at:
