I also really enjoy using my communication skills as a volunteer for a national listening service for young people as well, which draws on my experience working in a nursery as a summer job. Even though my previous experience is with dealing with children, these listening and supportive skills transfer really well to adults too!
Applications for these schemes are increasing year on year, and I support with the cycle from start to finish (including setting up the vacancies, processing applications, supporting candidates through the testing process, organising Assessment Centres and interviews, delivering feedback and outcomes to both successful and unsuccessful candidates, creating contracts and offer letters and taking references) so it is a challenging but ultimately rewarding role.
Even opportunities that might not seem directly relevant often carry a lot of useful transferable skills, so it is worthwhile seeking out any opportunity to develop that you can.
