Guessing this will be a bit of a long shot but worth a try...
I started a HR Masters last year looking for a career change and after initially struggling to get a HR Assistant job without experience (I really tried to get voluntary experience with companies!) I finally landed a role earlier this year. The generalist role provides a good breadth of experience and it's useful being within the role for some of my uni studies however I want to try and gain as much experience as I possibly can.
I know it's a long shot but do you know of any voluntary HR experience I could gain on weekends (within the North East - Durham/ Newcastle/ Sunderland etc.)?
I would have used my annual leave to go and gain experience (as I tried to do last year) but now I use up all of my leave for uni work/ assignments/ exams so am a bit stuck with wanting to get more experience but not having the Monday-Friday availability due to full time work alongside uni work.
I thought there may be some charities or the like who may operate on weekends and need some support? I would be open to any kind of company but I know from contacting over 50 companies last year to try and gain experience they are often not open to someone coming in for obvious reasons.
Thanks in advance!
