Student Volunteer Rep.

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 projects and campaigns, to finding volunteers to get involved.
