Work and Volunteering

Did you know that 85% of a person’s health is influenced by social factors such as employment, education, and the environment, living and working in strong and supportive communities.

Work and volunteering is generally good for both mental and physical health. There’s a strong link between poor mental health and being out of work.

Work and volunteering gives us meaning and structure to our day, the chance to socialise and make a difference to our communities, as well as rewarding us as individuals, either financially or in other ways.

Nottinghamshire needs a skilled workforce, with residents having access to good quality, rewarding, local opportunities.

This section of Notts Help Yourself provides information and advice on looking for work and volunteering and where you can go for help to do this.

The health and social care and early years and childcare sectors are always looking for new recruits and they are great places to build a worthwhile career.

Take a look at the “Men in Childcare” Video to see what a great contribution two men are making in their careers in childcare.

Watch our for our new video about working in Early Years and Childcare - coming soon!
