Volunteer Reps


Volunteering is rewarding on many different levels and the Student Life Exec (SLE) recognises the importance of this. We want to support student volunteers to enrich the projects and campaigns of the SLE and the Volunteer Rep’s role in this is crucial.  

The Volunteer Rep represents and supports volunteering within the SLE projects and campaigns. From looking at how volunteering could be embedded into the projects and campaigns to finding volunteers to get involved and supporting them when they do. 

Time commitment (average over period of office): at least 1-2 hours per week minimum. 

This role will be appointed by NUSU at the start of the academic year.

Main Tasks: 

  1. The recruitment and support of student volunteers involved in the SLE projects and campaigns. 
  2. Working closely with Go Volunteer staff to update SLE on current projects, campaigns and views of student volunteers. 
  3. Promotion of volunteering impact within the SLE. 
  4. Identifying and working with local charities to enhance the SLE volunteering opportunities, projects and campaigns.
