Volunteer with Us
You can become a listening volunteer, where you’d be talking to callers on the phone, by instant messaging, or through Nightmail. Alternatively, there’s the opportunity to volunteer in our Publicity & Fundraising Team. Both volunteering roles offer amazing benefits and opportunities. You will build your listening and communication skills and make friends from across the university. And of course, it’s great on your CV and counts toward your Stellify Award as ‘Step Up and Lead’!
