Volunteering and Summer Opportunities Fair - 9 February, 12-3pm, Student Life Building

Are you looking for new opportunities? To share and develop your skills? Make a difference? Meet new people?

Why not attend our Volunteering and Summer Opportunities Fair? We'll have charities, businesses and organisations from across the UK and overseas from various sectors. Some are looking for volunteers, others are offering paid summer opportunities, including Go Global schemes like Camp America. Students from any programme or level of study are welcome to attend the event.

What’s more, no fair is complete without games, entertainment, prize draws and free food!

Register your interest and head over to the Student Life Building on the day.
