Impress employers with a volunteer CV
When you volunteer with Portsmouth Together, you can create an online volunteer CV to use to demonstrate your volunteering to employers, colleges and universities.
Your personalised CV is endorsed by the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, and includes details of volunteering activity, skills demonstrated and a volunteer organisation reference.
How to create your CV
To create your CV, simply register with Portsmouth Together.
Then, use our opportunity search to find a volunteer opportunity.
Once you’ve volunteered, log into your Portsmouth Together account and log the hours that you volunteered via the ‘Log volunteer hours’ tab.
The organisation will be notified and once they have confirmed that you volunteered with them, these hours will appear on your CV, which you can then download as pdf.
If you volunteer frequently through Portsmouth Together, you’ll be able to choose which roles to include on your CV.
How to get started
Registering is easy and only takes a few minutes. You just need to choose a username and password and – if you want to – tell us a bit about yourself so we can send you opportunities that match your skills and interests.
