Want to have one of the best weeks at university and boost your CV at the same time? Get involved in one of our biggest volunteering opportunities by signing up to Freshers Team 2019!

Freshers’ Team volunteers play a key role in giving students a huge Northumbria welcome and helping them settle into life at university, whilst you’ll support your Students’ Union in the delivery of our event programme throughout the week.

From assisting new arrivals as they move into halls of residence and stewarding events to promoting daytime activities and signposting students to where they need to go, you’ll take on a wide range of duties throughout the week.

So what’s in it for you? For starters, you’ll receive a free Freshers’ Week staff wristband, which will give you access to all of our daytime and evening events, a volunteer t-shirt, food, drinks and refreshments whilst on shift. What’s more, you’ll gain loads of new mates and make memories to last a lifetime.

Sound like it’s for you? Sign up now at www.mynsu.co.uk/surveys/freshersteam2019. If you have any queries, please just get in contact with our Vice President Activities, Keldyne Wilson, at keldyne.wilson@northumbria.ac.uk.
