Give back to get back


Can you give your time to help inspire, share your knowledge and stories with our students and staff or mentor our budding entrepreneurs? We have a range of opportunities whether you have 30 minutes or want a more long term commitment and depending on the role can either be done in person or virtually from home or at work wherever you are in the world. There is something to suit everyone and your support will make a huge difference.

Why volunteer?

Giving time back is a fantastic way to expand your global network with alumni, staff, students and other business contacts.

Volunteering provides opportunities for learning new skills and increasing your own knowledge thereby enhancing your CV and boosting your personal and professional development.

Most volunteers also get a huge buzz out of sharing their knowledge and experiences with others and the satisfaction of knowing that they may have inspired someone along the way.
