If you want to recruit volunteers to join your project, there are lots of way to do it. Here are a few ideas:

Posters and flyers

Canva is a free and easy to use site – you can create posters, social media pictures, flyers etc.

Sploshh downstairs in the SU are well priced for printing

The Courier

You can ask the Courier Editor if you would be able to write a first person piece about volunteering with your project. Usually these need to be about 300-400 word pieces in the first person about your experience on a volunteering project - like what you did, any light-hearted stories you’ve got, what skills you’ve learned etc.


Place an advertisement on the digital screens in the SU

You can design one yourself and submit through this link:

NUSU snapchat takeover

Book a snapchat takeover for an event or session

Schedule in a social media post from the main NUSU channels

Hold a stall on campus

Ask reception to book a space outside the SU or inside the marketing cube (across from the SU shop). Have a table, do an interactive activity and hand out flyers.

Alternatively, ask a member of Go Volunteer staff to book the library reception for you.

Lecture shout-outs

Could a few people from your project do a shout out for volunteers before one of your lectures?

Go Volunteer Newsletter

Email Phil at if you have an event you’d like to promote, or if you’re in need of some volunteers.

Go Volunteer social media

Email if you’d like to promote an event or your project on our social media pages.

Hold an info session

Book a room at NUSU reception and hold an info session for potential volunteers. Remember to promote prior to this using flyers, social media, NUSU channels of communication etc. so that people show up.
