Taking the First Step to Volunteering...

When job-seeking results in endless rejections on the grounds that you need “proven experience” there is only one way to gain the necessary ‘work skills’ required by prospective employers, and that’s to become a volunteer. Judging by the volume of available positions in retail I decided that the best apprenticeship I could probably undertake was in a shop, learning how to work a till and finding out all about stock rotation and so on. After careful consideration, I visited a local charity shop, whose friendly and approachable staff all welcomed me with open arms and the manager very kindly agreed to train me up in return for some free labour.
