Social Impact and Employee Volunteering - Business in the Community

Social Impact and Employee Volunteering

Opportunities for you and your organisation

We have a range of opportunities for organisations to achieve social impact, including those supported by employee volunteering.


How does the Job Coaching programme work?

Employee volunteers provide virtual support for unemployed jobseekers across England, Wales and Scotland through a series of one-to-one coaching sessions.

We train volunteer coaches from Business in the Community (BITC) member organisations to support those looking for work.

Coaches and individuals meet virtually for up to six sessions over the course of several weeks.


BITC deliver a range of business-led activities to support people entering the UK.  We connect refugees with UK businesses, providing access to ongoing employment support and employment opportunities for clients with the right to work.

The services you can get involved in supporting are:

Behind the Scenes visits – Showcase your organisation and sector to inspire individuals as they explore employment options.

Career Conversations – Volunteer to take part in facilitated conversations about UK employment culture.

Ready for Work – Volunteer to prepare participants for employment opportunities, work together to understand and break through diversity barriers.

Application Support – Volunteer to provide one-to-one employability support to participants.
