Current Volunteering Opportunities

Advice and Guidance Volunteer

This is our flagship volunteer role. You will lead one-to-one, advice and guidance appointments with clients and help them to navigate the UK job market and achieve their career aspirations. Support and training provided.

English Volunteer

Language skills are a significant barrier for many of our clients. The BB English Programme provides free English courses to refugees, focused on work-related language skills. You can volunteer as a teacher, teaching assistant or on curriculum development.

Operations Volunteer

Based in our head office, work closely with staff on the “behind the scenes” tasks that are vital for our programmes to succeed. This role varies depending on current projects, but you will develop your administration skills and gain an insight into a fast-paced charity
