Caithness Voluntary Group HTSI had a very successful day at the job event held in North Highland College UHI on Saturday 3rd February. Catherine Patterson, Volunteer Development Officer, assisted by volunteer Chris Ware, was on hand to promote the benefits of volunteering. Volunteering is a flexible way to gain new skills, receive training, work in a team and establish references for a CV.
Chris met Catherine at the same event last year and has spent the year volunteering, training and gaining qualifications following an accident. He now said “he had gained confidence, kept active, expanded his network contacts and feels more positive about seeking out new employment opportunities”.
