  • Just Ask John campaign makes use of volunteer muscle

For example, St John Ambulance volunteers will be helping supermarkets during December by packing shoppers’ bags in return for a voluntary donation.Some commercial organisations would love to have access to the large volunteer forces that charities can marshall. Some charities are capitalising on this and effectively hiring out their volunteers in return for a donation.During December 2002, volunteers from the UK’s First Aid, transport and care charity, St. John Ambulance, will be in local supermarkets across the country, packing shoppers bags in return for donations as part of the ‘Just ask John to pack your bags’ fundraising campaign. Supermarkets that have shown support for the campaign include Kwiksave, Iceland and Co-op stores. Advertisement Howard Lake | 22 October 2002 | News The ‘Just ask John to pack your bags’ campaign has been designed not only to help St. John Ambulance continue its lifesaving work in local communities by raising funds, but also to ease the strain on thousands of Christmas shoppers and cashiers, by making the journey through the checkout faster and easier. The charity has over 45,000 volunteers who in 2001 provided over four million hours of support to the community. Each year volunteers treat over 200,000 casualties at a large number of public events, ranging from a village fete to the Commonwealth Games 2002.

  • Individuals in not-for-profit sector fail to capitalise on the benefits of volunteering

According to research, published today by the Chartered Management Institute and VSO (Voluntary Service Overseas), individuals who volunteer internationally develop expertise that addresses UK skills gaps. And even though employers are quick to recognise the value of volunteering, individuals do not always market themselves sufficiently when they return home.The research, which questioned 516 managers, revealed that the majority of managers (90 per cent) working in the not-for-profit sector are involved in voluntary activity. Altruism and the desire to help others was the top reason for volunteering both ‘at home’ (80 per cent) and internationally (56 per cent). However, the findings point to a missed opportunity as few considered the impact volunteer work could have on their career. Only 20 per cent saw it as a chance to build networks, just 11 per cent cited the prospect of learning new skills and 13 per cent said professional development was a motivating factor.Yet the research, which also probed 100 former VSO volunteers through detailed interviews, demonstrated how international experience has a significant impact on skills development. Eighty percent of volunteers believed they returned with expertise that they would not have gained in the UK. Almost all (92 per cent) said they were now more capable of handling different cultures and three-quarters (74 per cent) suggested they became better communicators. Around half also claimed that voluntary work had developed problem solving abilities (57 per cent) and influencing skills (46 per cent).These newly acquired skills have the potential to make managers in the not-for-profit sector significantly more employable as they directly address areas where organisations admit to the persistence of skills gaps. Diversity management (33 per cent) and communication (21 per cent) were identified, in the research, as key areas of shortage. One-third also reported difficulties in recruiting those skilled in conflict management (37 per cent) and managing change (41 per cent).The report also indicates broad support from employers for those who have undertaken overseas volunteer activity, with 92 per cent agreeing or strongly agreeing that it increases skills and 60 per cent believing it increases employability. Many also accept that domestic (78 per cent) and long-term international (51 per cent) work can be an effective method of skills development. Key findings were:– 92 per cent of managers in not-for-profit organisations said they would not be averse to employing someone who had recently returned from volunteering overseas– of those who had employed a volunteer, 67 per cent agreed that they brought different skills and experience to the organisation in comparison to other employees– 58 per cent of former volunteers said they had received a positive response from potential employers and just 5 per cent had difficulty in finding workHowever, many respondents (36 per cent) also suggested that organisations would be more inclined to employ long-term volunteers if they could demonstrate formal recognition of how they made an impact. A similar number (44 per cent) felt references from overseas employers would make a difference. Former volunteers supported this by saying that in retrospect they felt it was important to present their volunteering as part of their career development.Mary Chapman, chief executive of the Chartered Management Institute, says: “The findings offer powerful support for the benefits of voluntary activity and it is clear from this research that having a broad skill-set, the ability to communicate well and tackle difficult issues is critical for career success. Individuals should nurture these skills and consider how they record and recognise voluntary achievements in a way that attracts potential employers.”Mark Goldring, Chief Executive at VSO, adds: “Managers must recognise that international volunteering can have reciprocal benefits and that by sharing their skills as a VSO volunteer not only can they play a significant role in the fight against poverty but they can also influence their future career and contribute to their company’s success. Former volunteers have suggested that their overseas experience gave them a confidence that opened doors to opportunities that some felt were previously beyond them. We urge individuals and employers to reconsider how volunteering can have a lasting impact on the lives of some of the most disadvantaged people in the world at the same time as influencing career progression.”A report, called ‘Valuing Volunteering’, outlines the research in detail. It is available 2001 Ben Soppitt took a sabbatical from his job at Accenture and spent 12 months working as a small business adviser in Kazakhstan. On returning to UK he remained with Accenture for 18 months before moving on to work for GSM Association. Ben now manages a million dollar development fund that invests in projects in emerging markets, which use mobile technology and provide social or economic development. He directly attributes his career development to his time as a VSO volunteer.– ends –Further information:Mike Petrook /Gemma Bird, Institute Press OfficeTel: 020 7497 0496Email:[email protected]: Raynor/Leona Daly, VSO Press officeTel: 020 8780 7285/7262Email: [email protected] Website: NOTES TO EDITORSAs the champion of management, the Chartered Management Institute shapes and supports the managers of tomorrow, helping them deliver results in a dynamic world.

The Chartered Management Institute came into being on 1 April 2002, as a result of the Institute of Management being granted a Royal Charter.VSO is an international development charity that works through professional volunteers. Individuals spend up to two years living and working at the heart of local communities in some of the poorest countries in the world, sharing their expertise to help tackle poverty. Volunteers with management experience are needed to work with government ministries, local NGOs and civil society organisations to help build capacity to deliver more effective services to the poor. Over a quarter of VSO’s placements are now for professionals with business and management expertise. The number of business and management placements has tripled in the last five years.

The OCC Mortgage Metrics Report, Second Quarter 2014 found that borrowers had their monthly mortgage payments reduced by an average of $252.From January 1, 2008, to March 31, 2014, servicers implemented more than 3.5 million loan modifications. About 59 percent of those loan modifications, or 2.1 million, were active at the end of the second quarter in 2014. The remaining 41 percent were no longer in the portfolios of their respective lenders due to having paid their mortgage in full, having been involuntarily liquidated, or having their loans transferred to non-reporting institutions. OCC reported that about 69 percent of the nearly 2.1 million loan modifications that were active at the end of Q2 were performing, while 25 percent were delinquent and 6 percent were in the process of foreclosure.The newest revised estimate from the Commerce Department shows economic growth expanded even more than previously thought in the second quarter, reflecting a sharp turnaround from the year’s opening months. In its third estimate, the Bureau of Economic Analysis reported Friday that gross domestic product increased at an annualized rate of 4.6 percent in the second quarter. The figure marks a step up from the bureau’s last estimate of 4.2 percent growth, which in turn was up from an advance guess of 4.0 percent.

  • Vertical resolution of upward-looking atmospheric remote sensors—I. Performance of hypothetical instruments with well-behaved input kernels

    first_imgIn a new program which performs a Backus-Gilbert analysis of the output kernels from the input kernels of any hypothetical remote sensor, Conrath’s method for calculating trade-off curves has been shortened and the problem of normalization of truncated input kernels has been addressed. When evaluating the performance of remote sensors at the design stage, it is useful to transform the units of the input kernels into those of the output, and a method for treating this transformation has been formalized. We also show that when output kernels are selected for maximum signal-to-noise ratio and the input kernels have a limited vertical range, the output kernels move towards the centre of the input range. This conclusion is not a property of the sensor being analysed.last_img read more

  • Mandatory three-year tenancies questioned by leading lettings agent

    first_imgThe UK’s largest lettings agency Belvoir has set itself against all the mainstream political party manifestos and the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) by questioning the need for mandatory three-year tenancies.The Conservative Party seeks to “encourage landlords to offer longer tenancies as standard” while Labour goes much further, saying it will “make three-year tenancies the norm with an inflation cap on rent rises”.The Liberal Democrats advocate “longer tenancies of three years or more with an inflation-linked annual rent increase built in to give tenants security”.But Belvoir’s latest lettings index shows that 43% of tenants who rent through its branches stay for between 13-18 months, 29% for between 19-24 months and only 18.2% for more than two years.‘Question the need’“Looking at the manifestos of all political parties it would seem that all are looking to introduce three-year mandatory tenancy agreements although [our] figures question the need for this as our tenants can already rent with confidence, and most opt to leave when they wish to do so,” Belvoir says.But not all landlords agree with Belvoir’s point of view. As we reported last week, one of London’s largest Build to Rent landlords recently scrapped deposits for its 3,000 tenants as well as offering three-year tenancies.And leading Liverpool agent Helen Griffin-Booth of Bluerow Homes (pictured, left), last week said the three political parties’ adoption of longer and more secure tenancies was “promising”.“The manifestos also give leverage to the hope that the next five years will spell a continued increase in standards across the sector, and removing rogue landlords and agents from the market will play a key role in this,” she told a local newspaper.“To achieve these standards, it is essential that landlords are offered support from the government in providing quality, affordable housing stock for PRS. This will not only benefit landlords and tenants, but will help to stabilise the property market as a whole, and offer a much-needed boost to the wider economy.”Her view is also echoed by ARLA, whose MD David Cox (pictured, right) said earlier this year following the White Paper: “ARLA welcomes any attempt to improve stability in the housing market, and it is important that tenants feel that they are secure in their homes and are able to plan for the future.“We welcome the Government’s approach to this, and have been working closely with the Department for Communities and Local Government on proposals for incentivising longer-term tenancies; after all, it is in the best interests of landlords, tenants and agents to have long, well maintained tenancies. It is a fallacy that a regular churn of tenants benefits anyone.”Helen Griffin-Booth Belvoir Bluerow Homes June 5, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
