Do you know that many workplaces now provide 1-2 days volunteering leave? As an ICT or telecommunications specialist, your professional skills can make a huge difference to charities, which are often under-staffed and under-resourced.
Telco Together’s Skills Exchange events are ‘match-making’ events held in Melbourne and Sydney. They give charities an opportunity to pitch a small technological problem to a roomful of ICT specialists, who then use their volunteering leave to help solve the issue. These events offer a unique opportunity for volunteers to help charities solve relatively simple issues they are facing.
Some of the recent problems presented have included:
- Cloud storage
- Database management and data integrity
- Website set up and maintenance
- Google AdWords and Analytics
- CRM systems, Salesforce
- Donor management systems
- Image digitisation
- Cyber security…and more!
