1. create your profile
To be able to signup for opportunities and to record your horus once you're done, you'll need a profile. If you haven't already, visit this page and answer the questions on there. It doesn't take long and you'll only have to do it once.
2. Choose an opportunity
We have three kinds of opportunities for you to get involved in, placements, regular projects and one offs. Find something you like the look of and register your interest. We'll get back to you as soon as we can.
3. Do it!
This is the fun bit, once you've been added to a project, get out there and help the community.
4. Record your hours
You've done the hard work, now make sure it's added to your profile. Head to the log your hours page, pick the kind of work you did and then the type of project it was. Fill in the details including the dates (if you volunteer in the role all year pick the first up and last day) and click add.
Now it's just a case of adding the hours you worked and any skills you gained (make sure you provide an example of how you used it) and you're done.
5. Review your year
At the end of the year, you can download your skills template which lets you keep all of your skills in one place and will help with job applications.
