Information for charities

The LSE Volunteer Centre is a centre of knowledge on student volunteering. We help you connect with students and provide advice on best practice for your organisation. You can find more information on the ways in which we can help you below or contact us to find out more about our services.

Recruit volunteers from the LSE community

Post your opportunities on CareerHub

Our online vacancy board is the most effect way to advertise your opportunities to LSE students. You can advertise both long-term positions and one-off events free of charge. The vacancy board can be accessed by all current students and recent alumni and an average of more than 1000 students visit it each day. 

Please refer to our service standards [pdf] and step-by-step guide [pdf] before adding an opportunity to CareerHub.

Meet our students at events

Each year we run two successful volunteering fairs, with over 800 students attending. 

We also have lots of opportunities for charities to hold  information stalls on campus and interact with our students. 

Advice and support from the Volunteer Centre team


Looking to find new volunteers but unsure on the best way forward? Get in touch with us as we’d be delighted to set up a telephone call to go over any aspect of the recruitment process. We’ve worked with thousands of charities over the years helping them put in place the best recruitment and management strategies to ensure both they and the volunteer have an excellent experience. 

Volunteering trends and research

The LSE Volunteer Centre carries out research on volunteering trends amongst our students and is regularly involved in larger pieces of research involving volunteering. By sharing these with you we can help ensure that your organisation is well placed to use this knowledge in your recruitment drives. Please read our latest report on student volunteering [pdf] and partner feedback [pdf] for further information on volunteering trends at LSE. 

Best practice

We can work with your organisation to make sure you are following best practice guidance, especially when involving students as volunteers. Please take the time to read our best practice guide [pdf]. 

You can support us in this by providing examples of best practice or projects that have gone particularly well when working with LSE students. 

Raise your profile on campus

Links with the Students' Union and RAG

The Volunteer Centre works closely with the LSE SU and LSE SU RAG Society. We've had several charities go on to become official RAG partners and raise many thousands of pounds after working with the LSE Volunteer Centre. 

Free campus advertising

We can promote your organisation with stalls, banners and online adverts to ensure our students know about your opportunities. 

Your online and social media presence

We have several active social media platforms and a newsletter that is read by over 3000 students. We also have a very popular blog and we’re always looking for new content, such as successful volunteering stories. 

Student awards and recognition

students and charities that we work with. This is a fantastic opportunity to say a big ‘thank you’ to your volunteers and have their work recognised. 

We also produce an annual brochure featuring case studies and stories from students and the charities we work with.
