Becci Newton, senior research fellow at the Institute for Employment Studies, said that people who are struggling in the labour market at the moment may find that taking part in some volunteer work could give their CV an extra dimension and set them apart from other candidates.
"Volunteering is quite different in that young people have a greater opportunity to perhaps develop leadership skills than they might in work, because they are able to devise to a greater extent or suggest their own projects that they might take forward," she explained.
The expert added that all of these things combined will ensure that a person's CV does not get overlooked.
Meanwhile, according to Denise Taylor, author of How to Get a Job in the Recession, people must stay upbeat during the job search process and use all the tools they can, which could include a recruitment agency, as well as resources such as interview and CV guides.
