Charities need 'skilled workers'
Charitable organisations are in need of skilled workers, Oscar nominated actress Samantha Morton has said.

According to the star, who is also a charity supporter, many professionals would not immediately consider working for a not-for-profit organisation when first graduating - despite their need for such employees.

"A lot of the time, when you leave university and you are highly skilled, you're not likely to make your first port of call to go and work for a charity, are you? Yet it's those people who are going to need those highly skilled workers," she remarked.

Speaking alongside Andrew Dunnett, director of the Vodafone Group Foundation, the pair urged people looking for more rewarding work to get in touch with charities.

Vodafone is currently offering four of its employees the chance to work abroad for a year with a charity as part of its World of Difference campaign.
