Volunteering may be a great way to increase your chances of getting your dream job when you leave University or simply a way of giving something back to your community. 
The Students' Union Volunteering Service is here to help you!

Just follow these 3 simple steps:

  1. Create a Profile.
  2. Click on Browse Opportunities.
  3. Select the organisation you want to volunteer with and click 'I would like to apply'.

We will then put you in touch with the organisation via email.

Make sure you fill in your Volunteering Activity Log!  Don't forget, Reps and Clubs and Societies Committee members are volunteers too!

Our Volunteer Service achieves the Quality Standard

Megan Bennett-Students’ Union Communications Officer shares her thoughts about our achievement, “The Students’ Union is extremely proud of achieving this nationally recognised award. It just goes to show how strongly we value our volunteers. Volunteering is a fantastic opportunity to gain invaluable skills and attributes whilst having the privilege of giving something back.”
