Visitors at Open Day 2017, Portland Building, University Park

Volunteers needed for UG open days

May 23rd, 2018

Our next undergraduate open days will take place on Friday 29 June and Saturday 30 June, across all three UK campuses.

These flagship University-wide recruitment events are designed to give students and their families the best experience possible, as they visit to find out more about life and study at the University of Nottingham and consider which universities to apply for.

We rely on a huge number of staff and students to enable the open days to run smoothly. Our staff and student ambassadors are central to the success of the days and from feedback we know that they make a positive difference to our visitors’ experiences.

This year, we need to increase the number of staff ambassadors on site to ensure we have sufficient people to guide and direct our visitors. Are you able to help out?

Duties will include:

  • staffing information points
  • overseeing venues with talks
  • being a first point of contact and liaising with the Events team on any issues or problems during the day
  • assisting visitors at Nottingham train station/tram stop
  • supervising student volunteers
  • directing visitors/helping with accessibility issues

The standard hours of work for open days are between 8am – 4pm with variations and morning/afternoon session for those who are part-time.

Please seek your line manager’s permission before signing up and complete the online form by Wednesday 30 May.

The form asks staff to sign up for a briefing date, so please keep a note of which briefing you have signed up to attend. There are versions for those who have worked an open day before and those who have not. You will also be asked to attend a staff training session (1 hour max) and a final briefing the week prior to the Open Day (30-45 mins). These are obligatory for all staff, whether you have helped on open days before or not, as arrangements change from year to year. Details regarding the final briefing will be confirmed closer to the date.

If you have any queries relating to the events, please contact the student recruitment events team.
