Volunteering is considered to be work experience, and can help you get into paid work. It can be good if you’re not sure what you want to do and want to try a few different jobs for a short period of time.
Volunteering can also:
Give you the chance to learn new skills and practice existing skills
Make you more confident
Make your CV stand out
Provide references for your CV
Lead to new interests and routines you may not have thought about before
