Freshers Helpers

As many of you will remember, it can be a nerve-wracking experience coming to University for the first time - that’s why the Students’ Union enlists the help of hundreds of volunteers each year to make sure that Freshers and their families receive a friendly and helpful welcome to campus from people who understand their concerns and can answer their questions.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to help out over the Freshers period and can spare enough time to commit to several shifts of 2, 4 or 5 hours, then we want you to help us!

You will need to be knowledgeable about the Union, Halls of Residence and campus life, and you must have a friendly personality.

It will be hard work and require commitment & reliability, but most of all it will be fun and you will get to meet loads of new people. In return, you will be supplied with training, a T-Shirt and shifts, as well as pay starting at £6.19 per hour!

You must be able to attend a training session on Friday 27th September and be available during the following week to do shifts as required. Have a chat to your friends and get them involved as well – this is a chance to give something back and make a real difference to the lives of new students! Places are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Shifts: blocks of 2, 4 or 5 hours between Sat 28th September and Thursday 3rd October
  • Pay: £6.19 per hour for 28-30th September, £6.31 per hour from 1st October onwards
  • Training: Session on Friday 27th September, compulsory and unpaid
