Become a volunteer

 

Our volunteers are the backbone of our operation. We’re fortunate enough to have over 800 volunteers across our 115 stores and others placed in our services.

They are an incredible bunch of dedicated and generous people who recognise the valuable work that the NCBI does and our shops and services are stronger because of them.

6 Reasons why you should become a volunteer

 

Need to brush up on those language skills?

The best way to learn and improve your English speaking skills is to immerse yourself in English as much as possible. Volunteering with NCBI can help you improve your language skills with no pressure if you get a word wrong!

Volunteering is a great way to build a CV

Volunteering will help build confidence and self-esteem. Not only can you gain specific skills depending on the volunteering opportunity, but also many transferable skills, for example, customer service skills and initiative, time management and delegation.

Volunteering can help you stay healthy

It’s true! Charity runs and walks help you keep fit. Volunteering can also be extremely beneficial to your mental health. It helps to keep your mind active, gives a new opportunity or purpose.

Volunteering helps you meet new people

New to the community or just want to get out and meet new people? Volunteering is the perfect way to meet new friends.

Personal tie to the cause

Give something back to an organisation like NCBI that has impacted so many peoples’ life fro the past 85 years, either directly or indirectly. Make a difference to the lives of others.

A good example for others

By volunteering, you inspire others to get involved to make a positive change in the community. It also sets a good example for children. Volunteering presents a proactive way of doing something to make the world a better place.
