Who are we looking for?
Friendly and enthusiastic students who are major team players and passionate about helping others. We need current students from our Edinburgh AND Scottish Borders campuses who can help in-person, online or both. You don’t need to have previous volunteering experience, though if you do, you might want to apply for a Team Leader role (included in the application form). You will also need to be available all day on Tuesday 1st September for Rep Training.
What will I get out of it?
In a word, LOADS. By becoming a Freshers Rep, you’ll make new pals and gain new skills that will make your CV shine! You’ll learn how to work as a team, be a great communicator, solve problems and feel great knowing you’re making someone’s time at Heriot-Watt brilliant. Any time spent volunteering as a Freshers Rep can go on your transcript when you graduate AND we’ll chuck in some freebies too.
Complete the application form here by Sunday 9th August, 23:59pm.
