We want to promote volunteering opportunities which students want to do. This includes roles which challenge them, develop their skills, or provide the opportunity to work directly with end users. For this reason, there are a number of roles we don’t recruit student volunteers for and these include cheerers for races, envelope stuffers, or drivers.
All roles advertised need to be open to all students (regardless of personal attributes such as faith, gender, age, background, etc.) and roles cannot involve students recruiting members for or promoting the tenants of a particular faith or political leaning.
Roles cannot be roles in which volunteers and paid staff have the same responsibilities, or roles which ask for a time commitment of more than the equivalent of more than one day per week.
The Students’ Union volunteering service is not able to promote international volunteering opportunities.
