About Charity Jobs

A charity job at Goleudy could be just the right fit for you.

The voluntary sector in Wales employs over 46,000 people and offers a huge variety of jobs that give you the chance to make a real difference in people's lives. A sense of fulfilment, good pay and benefits and the opportunity to meet a wide range of people are just a few reasons you should work in a charity. If you've never considered applying for a charity job before, research has found that the job satisfaction rate across workers in charity jobs is one of the highest – 77%, compared to a UK average of 72%.

 

Even though the charity sector in Wales is large and varied, there continue to be some myths about charity jobs, including the idea that charity work is restricted to just a few types of jobs. In reality, many different jobs are available at all levels, whether you are looking for an entry-level position, a graduate opportunity or an experienced professional wanting to switch from the commercial to the charity sector.

 

In Wales, charity jobs offer rewarding careers where no two days are the same. At Goleudy, our teams can tackle food poverty through our award-winning Community Fridge project, running activities that help isolated people build community connections or supporting vulnerable young adults to build the confidence and life skills they need to maintain their tenancies.

 

Our charity work in Swansea helps people like Jamie, who was struggling with alcohol use and had resorted to sleeping on the beach. With our team's help, he could find safe, secure accommodation and build his confidence through volunteering.
