Firms asked to supply a volunteer to charity

HAVING more than three decades of experience working in the developing world, GOAL recognises that having an entrepreneurial spirit is absolutely vital if an aid programme is going to be a success.

So we’re always on the lookout for quality people, particularly in the areas of finance and civil engineering, for our various programmes across the developing world.

Of course, the cost of employing a person is a substantial financial drain on GOAL, particularly in the current economic climate where money is not as readily available as it once was.

GOAL views the secondment of personnel as a mutually beneficial relationship and the most meaningful gift that a corporation can give to a charity. Not only does GOAL get the benefit of that person for a year without the usual employment cost, but when the staff member returns to the company he or she has gained vital experience and ingenuity not otherwise obtainable.

We appeal to corporate Ireland to consider releasing one of its staff members to GOAL for a year.
