Things may have been anything but normal over the past year but rest assured we intend on being back with a bang come September, as Freshers Week 2021 is on the horizon.


Freshers Week requires a lot of effort and hard work to make it happen and we couldn’t possibly do this without our amazing team of Freshers Team volunteers who help students move into halls, provide support with the delivery of our daytime and evening events and generally providing new students with a warm welcome as they arrive at Northumbria.


We are currently recruiting for Freshers Team Leaders who will play an integral part in ensuring Freshers Team runs smoothly. Team Leaders will be responsible for overseeing a small team of 12-15 volunteers throughout their time volunteering. Whilst this is a volunteering position, you can be assured to gain lots of experience for your CV and a range of benefits including:

- Team Leader Hoodie and T-shirt

- Food, drinks and refreshments whilst on shift

- Free entry to events and activities throughout Freshers Week

- Plus more exciting rewards to be confirmed


Freshers Team Leaders must be students for the 2021/22 academic year and you will need to be available from Tuesday 14th to Sunday 26th September, although we will be able to plan your specific shifts arounds other commitments e.g. part time work and study.
