Whatever your interests and subject of study, there is bound to be a voluntary role you enjoy, and which will enhance your skills and CV.

Volunteering Advisers are here to support you when you apply by checking your CV or application form. We will give you feedback to help you make the most effective application

Please read the Student Volunteering Handbook for important information on volunteering, what to expect, and your rights and responsibilities

A good starting point is to register with the Online Vacancy Service.  Once you have registered you can search for voluntary opportunities whenever you like.  We advertise opportunities within 20 miles of the University on this service.
