Creative Jobs and OpportunitiesVolunteering and work experience

Volunteering can help you develop valuable transferable skills to enhance your CV, as well as make a difference to the local area.

Many creative graduates will work for voluntary sector projects and this understanding of charitable and community work can enhance your career.

If you’re thinking about volunteering with children or vulnerable adults, you may need to have a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. This is a check undertaken in association with the police and other organisations which reports to the volunteering organisation on whether someone has any criminal convictions which would make them unsuitable to work with children or vulnerable adults.

If you need a DBS check the organisation you are volunteering with will tell you and they might sort this out for you.

The following organisations regularly advertise volunteering opportunities:
