UBSport are looking for dedicated students to join the Volunteer Committee for 2014/15.

The aims of the committee are:

  • Develop and promote high quality volunteer opportunities and the benefits of volunteering in sport
  • Act as mentors to sport volunteers to support their development
  • Publicise the work undertaken by volunteers 
  • Represent student volunteers at relevant meetings at the University and in the community

Applications close 22nd June 2014.

 

Volunteering is becoming increasingly important and is a key factor that many employers look for on a CV or application form.

The benefits of volunteering in sport include: 

  • Gain knowledge and experience in the sporting environment
  • Develop transferable life skills including communication, confidence, time management, organisation and leadership
  • Gain personal satisfaction by helping others access sport and physical activity

 

In return for volunteering your time and skills, we can provide support to help you access training and development opportunities including subsidising costs where possible and recognition for your volunteering.

All volunteers who want to help with young people under the age of 18 need to have a DBS check. If you haven't already had a DBS check, we can arrange this before you begin.
