Volunteering with BOHS has allowed me fantastic opportunities to develop and demonstrate leadership and team-working skills.  It has also given me the opportunity to assist in improving the working lives of the GB workforce.

Volunteering is an important aspect of the Society. We offer an array of roles that support the running of the Society and strive towards improving the profession. Volunteers can use these opportunities to support their own professional development by learning new skills and gaining new knowledge, whilst at the same time knowing that they are contributing to the Society's mission to ensure that work is not a cause of acute or chronic ill-health.
