ViewVo is the only platform offering job shadowing opportunities to people who want to change career or get back into work.

Mentors charge a fee.

Mentors can then opt for their fee to be donated to their favourite charity.

If you want to raise money for charity, or you have a friend working for a charity looking for innovative ways to fundraise, what could be better than doing this?

Learning whilst giving and changing someone’s life.

We have two simple messages: 
1.  You can now raise money for charity by letting someone shadow you at work;

2.  Charities can raise funds – it costs them nothing and they additionally help people find their dream job

Here’s what one of our mentors, Jonny (a songwriter for the likes of Ellie Goulding), had to say about why he opted to donate his fee to his chosen charity:

‘As a form of fundraising I’d definitely much rather do this than run a marathon that’s for sure! I think it’s a really great way to fundraise for charity – just giving up a little bit of your time to help someone else in the process. it’s the easiest thing in the world for me to talk about my job and what I do, and if it’s helping someone else and raising money for charity it’s the perfect thing to do.’
