Open doors with volunteering or pursue a career in charity

Volunteering for even half a day can boost your skills, experience and your CV or give you the chance to try something new, whatever your career aims. Alternatively, a paid role in the charity sector could be your aim if you want the fulfilment of making a positive impact with your work.

How does an OU careers fair work?

OU Online TalentConnect careers fairs are open to any current student or former student that has finished their studies within the last three years. You can visit virtual exhibition stands of top employers and join in with chats, forums and webinars, and discover the voluntary and paid roles employers have to offer.

Regularly check voluntary and paid roles in the charity sector on OpportunityHub.
