Telephone fundraisers wanted

We are looking for lively and enthusiastic students to work as telephone fundraisers for this year’s telephone fundraising campaign.

Previous campaigns have raised a total of £70,308 and this money has helped students who are in genuine financial hardship.

The University’s Alumni Relations and Development Team are recruiting friendly and pro-active students from all subject areas to get involved with this exciting University scheme. By speaking over the phone to former students you will improve your communication skills, gain valuable material for your CV, learn more about the University and get paid. You may even be lucky enough to secure some valuable contacts or work experience.

Do I need any experience?

  • previous calling or telesales experience is useful but not essential
  • the most important asset is an enthusiasm for the University and good listening and communication skills

Will I receive any training?

Student Fundraisers must be able to attend compulsory training sessions on both Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 October 2013. This year’s campaign runs from Saturday 26 October to Sunday 17 November 2013.

How do I apply?
