Abby’s research interests are in the benefits of volunteering at Mega Events. These benefits are often seen as invaluable. Meeting new people, learning new skills and gaining experience to help with future career prospects are to name a few. However, there is only anecdotal evidence that these benefits, especially in the employability category, actually exist.
Abby is interested in identifying the link between volunteering at mega-events such as the Olympic and Commonwealth Games and its effect on employability. Understanding what employers value most in their recruitment process and how future volunteering programmes can be developed to incorporate these desired skills.
