From simple skills such as communication, organisation and planning to experiences such as sponsorship, partnership engagement and management; volunteering in sport can really enhance you employability and graduate earning potential through adding to your CV and making you stand out from the crowd. You can also use your volunteering experiences with SU Sport to contribute towards the Bath Award, as well as gain the fantastic benefits of the volunteer recognition scheme.
