Careers Service


Volunteering is an unpaid activity with a charity or not-for-profit organisation that makes a difference to the wider community.

Is a great way to enhance your University experience. As well as being fun, it can:

  • Give you a great sense of achievement
  • Help you develop essential skills that employers look for e.g. project management, communication and teamwork skills
  • Give you the opportunity to meet new people
  • Give you the chance to make a difference in the community

How can the University help you to volunteer?

The University of Manchester has a dedicated Volunteering and Community Engagement Team, which will encourage you to volunteer by:

  • Advertising hundreds of volunteering opportunities across Greater Manchester through Volunteer Hub
  • Providing one-to-one advice to help you with volunteering queries
  • Informing you of how you can get your volunteering recognised
  • Keeping you up to date with the latest volunteering news and events
