Student help available for local charities
Did you know that Bath Spa University 2nd year students studying for the Open Module have 15 days they can spend with a local employer?
Local charities could get help with pieces of work like marketing, social media, researching new opportunities etc and there is no limit on the number of students you can take. The Placements team at Bath Spa would just need a one page Job Description from your organisation. As this is curriculum based and the student is assessed on the piece of work, there is no cost to the employer. Please note though that work can be done remotely by the student (at home) or via Skype, email etc.
If you are interested the Placements team would advertise the position(s) with our Open Module students with CV's received by the organisation two weeks later. You would then select and interview but would not be under any obligation to appoint. Should this be of interest to you please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
FareShare South Westis a charity which takes surplus food from the food industry and redistributes it to over 150 members across the South West. Their members in turn transform it into nutritious meals for vulnerable people for a fraction of the cost. They take wholesale quantities of food from the big food retailers, store it in their Bristol warehouse, and redistribute it across the region with the help of an army of volunteers. They stock everything from meat to cheese and from baked beans to fresh fruit, all good quality and in-date.
FareShare South West is currently able to support new members- large and small! They are members of the BANES 3rd Sector Group and keen to speak with other 3SG members who could use their food. Please get in touch with Phoebe Ruxton via email@example.com, or call 0117 954 2220.
