What to expect

Answer:

Volunteers, and anyone who gives their time to The University of Nottingham, are a really important part of the University. They help give our students unique insights, provide advice and guidance, as well as inspire our students to go on to fantastic careers they may never have considered. Volunteers also help the University in other ways such as with research, or helping out at activities and events. Everything is really appreciated and each role is specifically for a volunteer.

Answer:

As a volunteer you will have a clear role and point of contact. We ask you to speak to your ‘Volunteer Task Manager’ about your role to ensure you understand what will be required of you. If you can then ensure you keep your ‘Volunteer Task Manager’ up to date should any changes occur, such as if you are unable to attend, or you cannot give as much time any more etc.

Answer:

This will be clearly shown in the ‘Role Description’ of your role. If you have any questions please contact your main point of contact.

Answer:

That’s fine. We understand things change and so we ask for you to keep us updated if you are unable to take part or want to step down.

Answer:

We understand that sometimes you may not feel able to talk to your main point of contact. If you have any concerns and would like to speak to someone else please contact the Head of Volunteering, Lauren White on Lauren.White@nottingham.ac.uk  or +44 (0)115 74 84987

Answer:

We will provide you a briefing for the role you are taking on and give you the opportunity to attend networking/training. For some roles more details training and ongoing support is needed. If this is the case it will be stated in your role description. If your role requires training you will be given full details about what is provided and what you may need to do to prepare. We will ensure you have as much detail as you need to complete the volunteer activity to the best of your ability.

Answer:

There are many different roles available at The University of Nottingham which can help you develop your skills and confidence outside of your workplace. We hope that the roles we have can provide you with new opportunities for you to try and develop your talents, whilst helping the University's staff and students.

 

Answer:

Depending on the volunteer role you would like to do, you may need to travel. For full details on the location of the role please check the role profile/with your Volunteer Task Manager.

Although volunteering or giving your time to The University of Nottingham is unpaid, we do understand that for some people expenses may be required to take part in volunteering activity at The University of Nottingham.  Further information on the types of expenses which can be claimed for your role can be discussed with your Volunteer Task Manager.

Answer:

As a volunteer you should expect to hear from us in a timely manner. We will aim to ensure that once you have submitted you application your Task Manager will be in contact with you in within 10 days to confirm the next steps of your role.

 

Once you have completed your volunteering, you will receive regular updates from us including a supporter eNewsletter, supporter magazine, pin badge and invitations to special events.
