One of the great advantages of work in the modern world is the sheer range of options available to us. The Internet means that each of us are just a few clicks away from potentially starting an entirely new career.
With so many options available to us, it can be difficult to really focus on what we’ll find fulfilling. Here at Workfuly, we believe that the charity sector is the place to be. But why would you take a charity job in 2016? Here’s three huge reasons:
1) Real fulfilment
Time and time again fulfilment ranks amongst the most desirable traits in a job, so why not take a position where you can positively affect real lives?
Charity work positions give you the opportunity to do real work in a challenging environment that actually makes people’s lives better. It’s not about making somebody at the top a bigger bonus, it’s about helping people live better, longer and happier lives.
2) Superb opportunities
Charity work is far from a stopgap, it does present an opportunity for you to develop a broad range of skills and experience and can be better than taking a similar job within a corporation.
Most charities offer a huge variety of job opportunities, and thanks to the wide range of charities out there, you can find one which really suits you. Whatever your passion, there’s a charity out there which seeks to promote it and improve lives with it, whether you’re a coder, a teacher, a doctor or even a builder, you can find the right role for you.
3) A career for life
The charity sector is always looking for driven, committed and creative people to help drive their charitable work forward. Though many of us come in to the charity sector simply looking for a job, a huge number of us find ourselves truly at home for the first time in our careers.
Charity work presents a complex, rewarding and flexible position that’s quite intoxicating. If you’ve got the drive, you could find yourself a career for life in the charity sector – helping to make lives better.
