Do you work with organisations which would benefit from our people power?
Let us lend a hand
At Aviva, we employ thousands of talented and enthusiastic people who could have just the skills you need to move a project forward.
We do all we can to empower our people to give back to their communities. As part of this, every employee gets up to 21 hours a year of paid volunteering leave, which they can use during work hours to help out their communities.
Our big push
From 12 to 16 October 2020 we will be running a ‘Volunteering Week’ event. Our aim is to have 20% of our UK workforce (approximately 3,200 people) making use of their volunteering hours by helping out causes in their communities.
To make it as easy as possible for our people to volunteer we’re hoping to collaborate with volunteering organisations, as well as national and local charities, to provide volunteering opportunities. We’re particularly open to opportunities that have a climate focus, as well as any that can be done digitally or remotely, to accommodate Coronavirus concerns. We can currently allow up to 6 people, socially distanced, for outdoor group events in an outdoor setting, and of course Government guidelines would need to be adhered to at all times.
We ran this campaign for the first-time last year, and our people really embraced the challenge, giving around 8,000 volunteering hours to support over 80 charities. We’d love to build on that success this year and give charities all the help we can throughout this difficult time.
Opportunities should be able to take place during working hours and non-remote projects will need to be based near to one of Aviva’s primary locations:
- Bristol, Dorking, Eastleigh, Glasgow, London, Norwich, Perth, Sheffield, York
Interested in our help?
We’ll be promoting opportunities internally across our locations throughout September, with the aim of signing people up, ready to leap into action during Volunteering Week.
Please feel free to share this email with organisations you think would have appropriate opportunities needing support during Volunteering Week (or require volunteers on a long-term basis or later in the year). We just ask that this form is completed fully and submitted by 11th September 2020 to tell us what support would be helpful. If there is any imagery (with the appropriate permissions) to include with the volunteering opportunity, please send this through to the email below.
In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
