Volunteering with Care after Combat is a hugely rewarding experience.
We have the best armed forces in the world and all of us are immensely proud of them. We must now show that we are the best supporters of our forces in the world as well.
Whilst you’ll want to make a real difference when you volunteer, it’s not just about what you can do for others. Volunteers get a lot out of the experience too. At Care after Combat we believe that good volunteering should be rewarding for everyone involved.
A survey carried out by TimeBank through Reed Executive showed that among 200 of the UK’s leading businesses
- 73% of employers would recruit a candidate with volunteering experience over one without
- 94% of employers believe that volunteering can add to skills
- 94% of employees who volunteered to learn new skills had benefited either by getting their first job, improving their salary, or being promoted
Work permits – New members of staff (including UK nationals) are required to provide evidence that they are legally able to work in the UK. References – Care after Combat seeks references for all new employees covering their previous 3 years employment history and validates any gaps of 3 months or greater by seeking a personal reference. Medical – Some posts will require short listed applicants to complete a medical questionnaire prior to appointment. Disclosure and Barring Service – A disclosure and barring service (DBS) enhanced check will be carried out for any person being offered a post working with people who are vulnerable. This will be done after selection but before the appointment is confirmed.
