Student volunteer auditors wanted

  • Want to find out more about environmental issues at the University?
  • Want to contribute to the environmental improvements being made?
  • Want to gain the skills and knowledge associated with environmental auditing?
  • Want to improve your CV and gain valuable employability skills?

The Environmental Team are looking for student volunteers to audit departments at the University who are taking part in the Green Impact scheme.

Green Impact is an environmental accreditation scheme, designed to encourage, support and celebrate University departments in making environmental improvements. Staff volunteered to participate in the scheme and received a workbook outlining achievable environmental changes.

All departments participating in Green Impact will need an audit to verify their level of achievement… and this is where you come in.


We are looking for volunteer auditors to visit departments and conduct audits on 14 March 2013. Each volunteer auditor will be fully trained on the criteria and what they need to audit through a half-day of training.

A half-day training session will take place in the morning, there’s a break for lunch and then you go off in pairs and audit departments. An audit should take between one and two hours to complete depending on the size of the department.

Refreshments and lunch are provided.

What skills do I need?

No technical knowledge is needed and full training will be provided. All you need is an interest in environmental issues.

If you’re eager to get involved or if you have any further questions, please get in touch by emailing
