Covid-19 Update: Skills share has traditionally been a programme of virtual employee-volunteering. We are currently looking to engage with employee-volunteers to help develop an Employability resource pack of videos, fact sheets and virtual mentoring to support York residents who may have lost employment directly due to Covid-19 to support them in looking for new employment. These resources may include how to write a CV, interview tips or looking at transferable skills.
Skills Share provides opportunities for employee-volunteers to share their business expertise with voluntary community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations to help them become more sustainable. By supporting VCSE organisations, employee-volunteers can bring about lasting change.
Who is it for?
● VCSE organisations could get support with a specific project such as a marketing plan
● Individuals or teams of employee-volunteers can provide support, experience and guidance on a specific project to a VCSE organisation
How does it work?
Employee-volunteers act as ‘critical friends’, providing support, expertise and guidance and asking questions that challenge and help the VCSE organisation to move forward with their projects.
● For VCSE organisations who are interested in gaining support from employee-volunteers please complete the Expression of Interest Form which can be found here and return the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
● For employee-volunteers who are interested in taking part please contact us on email@example.com and we will then send over our skills audit form for you to complete. Once we know your skills and interests we will then be able to match you with a relevant project.
