There are some really exciting things going on in the Students’ Union in Freshers 2022 and we want you to help us make it happen! As part of this project we’re looking for friendly, enthusiastic people to join the Welcome Team to introduce over 6,000 new students to the University.

Joining the Welcome Team is an amazing opportunity to volunteer your time to make a huge difference to the student experience, make loads of friends and acquire new skills that will stay with you forever. You’ll also make a huge positive impact on your CV while doing it.

What are you commiting to?

Joining the Welcome Team is a totally manageable commitment and we ensure the safety of volunteers, students and staff alike.
