Posted on February 26, 2016 at 11:28 pm

If you are looking for a job that will give you satisfaction and where you know you are making a difference then you may consider working for a charity. Many people assume that if you work for a charity you do not get paid and therefore they cannot afford to do it, but this is not always the case and many jobs within charities are actually really well paid.

Charity work isn’t easy. You will often need to be flexible with your time, have passion and dedication and be prepared to work very hard to complete tasks as and when they are needed.

Often you will require several skills to work within a charity but many charities offer training to people who show willing and commitment. These skills can often be transferable between jobs and therefore you may gain valuable experience that you can take with you if you decide its time for a change.
