So exactly how will volunteering and entrepreneurship boost your skills, improve your CV and increase your chances of landing that all important first job?
Working with LUSU involve can help you improve your worth and attractiveness on the job market – your skills, traits, and experience and most crucially your ability to communicate all of these to an employer in an effective way.
Employability skills are at the heart of what we do, and we want to make sure all our students make the most of their volunteer experiences. Try to identify what areas you want to develop and take up opportunities to realise those goals. Whatever project you are involved in, we will run a number of sessions to help you communicate your skills in the most dynamic and effective way possible.
I believe that people who take part in volunteering schemes have a significant advantage when it comes to interviews and being able to talk about their own experiences

Rather than take our word for it, we asked current students, graduates and employers what they thought. Browse the case studies in each area to see how beneficial working with involve can be.
And remember that all the projects, events, training and workshops we offer count towards attaining the Lancaster Award. So don’t hang around, get involved!
