Be Collective is a free volunteering platform, which connects individuals with local volunteering opportunities. Volunteering is a great way to get involved and engaged within your community and it also adds weight when applying for jobs. Be Collective allows volunteers to gain access to a verified, personalised social record and CV, once they have volunteered through the platform.
Young people are incredibly busy with extra curricular activities, from sports teams, church groups to community work. However, employers are noting that the many young people when applying for jobs, aren't mentioning the skills they have gained through these volunteering experiences.
MTFJ is working with Be Collective to get the platform listed in communities across New Zealand.
