This will be a desk based voluntary opportunity for 5-10 working days’ volunteering on days that suit you in summer 2017. You might be a student, graduate or school leaver, or someone looking to gain experience in a new sector. If you’re keen to learn and have an eye for data, we’d love to hear from you!
