Volunteering Opportunities

There are lots of ways that you can get involved at the University. The Alumni Relations team work with alumni who are able to volunteer their time.

Why volunteer?

  • Students gain invaluable insight into specific industries through talks and mentoring programmes. Learning from people that have gone through the same process
  • Volunteering is always a great addition to your CV
  • Organising a reunion, being part of a group or meeting up with other volunteers is a fantastic way to network with other alumni

Careers talks

Speaking about your journey through college and your career is beneficial for our current students, offering excellent insights into the industry. There are events and talks throughout the year where alumni can offer tips and practical advice to students.

Mentoring

Could you inspire others? Would you like to share your career knowledge and experience with a student who is interested in working in a similar field to you? Can you offer two hours a month to connect with a current student and act as a mentor helping them to identify their skills and prepare to transition from education to employment? We are always interested to hear from alumni keen to support and inspire our students. In return we offer full training, the chance to develop your leadership skills and the opportunity to join our wide network of mentors.
