SKC Specialist Volunteering support – Monkton Nature Reserve
Volunteering led to paid work for one Canterbury graduate who also felt part of the community through her experience.
Monkton Nature Reserve were supported by HR graduates Gabriel Awonusi and Vanessa Rugoyi who looked at job role descriptions and responsibilities and designed a volunteer handbook.
The pair were thrilled with the result – as were Monkton Nature Reserve.
“I’m really pleased with what they have done so far! Gabriel and Vanessa are still on our books. Gabriel has just secured some paid HR work at Canterbury University which is great, and I know Vanessa is job hunting. They have both said they are happy to help in the future.”
“Thank you SKC – you have done a tremendous job of helping us get our first HR Volunteering role. We enjoyed it thoroughly. Sharon and everyone else made us feel like part of the community and we will continue to support Monkton. We were able to gain the confidence and knowledge to help us continue our journey towards reaching our career goal of obtained a full-time HR role.”
