Volunteering with Engage for Success
The Engage for Success movement is driven by the direction and energy set by our people.
The Core Team is open to new volunteers and contributors who would like to make a difference and are enthusiastic, genuine and inspired by employee engagement.
The Core Team consists of volunteers in the movement’s four Hubs – Thought and Action Groups in (TAGs) Hub, Partnerships Hub, Communications Hub, and Volunteers Hub – as well as the Strategy Directors and the Chair of the TAGs Steering Group.
As a decentralised movement, our volunteers have the freedom and authority to influence, inspire and make an impact. All we ask is that you bring to the Core Team your dynamic effort, actionable ideas, a degree of commitment, and a sense of fun.
