If you’re looking for a career in the VCSE sector, this will be the perfect opportunity to meet local VCSE Organisations and find out about volunteering opportunities across Calderdale.
No need to book in advance, you can just drop in.
The Voluntary, Community & Social Enterprise (VCSE) Sector offers an array of both volunteering and paid job opportunities.
The VSI Alliance is holding an Open Day at the Resource Centre, 8b Hall Street, HX1 5AY on Monday 23rd January between 1 and 6pm.
The event is designed to showcase the work of the VCSE sector in Calderdale and highlight vacancies, volunteering opportunities and trusteeships that are available throughout the sector.
This event may be a good opportunity to support guests with the completion of job applications for vacancies at VAC as well as holding first interviews where appropriate. If you are interested as an organisation in following this approach, please contact VSI and to ensure that there is space available for you to do this.
If you are interested in attending as an organisation to showcase your work, volunteering opportunities and job vacancies, please email Engagement@cvac.org.uk
