At a recent Scottish Developers event we had a brief talk by Peter Munro who introduced us to IT4Communities who look for volunteers to help charities. He left us with a number of leaflets for those that were interested. If you didn’t make it to the event, or didn’t manage to get a leaflet here is the information.
Share your Professional IT Skills
Share your time and talent with charities and make a real difference
- Your skills make a real difference.
You bring much needed professional skills and expertise to charities
- Volunteering can develop your professional skills
Apply your knowledge in unfamiliar settings and learn new skills
- Something simple to you means the world to a charity
An hour of your time could save months of headaches
- There are a number of ways to volunteer
Sometimes charities need hands on help, others just need your trusted advice
- Your business perspective
Your commercial knowledge can help and organisation achieve sustainability
Sounds great – How do I volunteer?
Register your talent in 5 minutes at www.it4communities.org.uk. There are hundreds of opportunities waiting for you. You can search in your own time (by region, skill and charity type or free text in our RSS feed) and you are not committed until both you and the charity are ready to go.
Why volunteer through IT4Communities?
IT4Communities is the UK’s leading volunteering programme for IT Professionals. We’re on hand throughout the project to help – we understand both IT Professionals and the voluntary sector. Remember we ask for established IT Professionals – see our link “What is an IT Professional?” on the registration page.
