Course Benefits

Working within a charitable organisation is a hugely rewarding and fulfilling experience.

However, it can also be a daunting prospect, with the challenges and responsibilities faced differing greatly from those faced when working in a commercial organisation.

This unique one day workshop is designed to help individuals gain a greater understanding of what it means to work for a charity, why someone might choose to do so and what the responsibilities are when doing so.

The experience is designed to enable individual to consider their own needs and the unique challenges of the organisation they work within, sharing experience with others who are committed to providing service to charitable organisations.


Anyone interested in or already engaged in a role within a charitable organisation or in support of a charity.
