Employer Supported Volunteering

  • Employer Supported Volunteering (ESV) is when employers offer their employees paid time off to benefit their local community. It is a great way of fulfilling a corporate social responsibility policy and building a reputation as a responsible business. It can also bring significant team building opportunities and contribute to employee satisfaction.

Our Volunteering Officer can help get your offer to charities in the city and match your employees with roles where they can offer their skills in the voluntary sector. Email Cheska for more information
