The Student Fundraising Team

The University is looking for confident, enthusiastic and dedicated students to join its Student Fundraising Team for the Spring 2020  telephone appeal.

As a Student Fundraiser you’ll help to engage our alumni with the many ways they can stay involved with their former institution. These include opportunities such as attending events, volunteering or donating to support various University-wide projects.

Being a Student Fundraiser is an excellent way to make a difference at your University, helping current and future students have the best experience possible - while also helping to fundraise for some of the University’s most exciting and ground-breaking research.

As a Student Fundraiser, you’ll work on the Highfield Campus in the evenings for at least 9 hours per week and earn £8.75 per hour, plus pay in lieu of holiday. You will develop excellent communication and negotiation skills that will be of great benefit to you in your future career.



I enjoy speaking to alumni about their University experience and career since graduating, and seeing their genuine desire to give back to the University.
