We are looking for returning students with a positive attitude and a good experience of student life which they are enthusiastic to share with others.
As a Buddy Volunteer you will be matched with new students and will help guide and support them as they settle into Semester 2.
Duties and responsibilities will include providing peer support to your buddy, regularly checking in with your buddy (you may chat online, meet for a coffee or give them a campus tour), introducing your buddy to activities, groups and clubs they can get involved in.
By becoming a UUSU Buddy Volunteer gives you the opportunity to become part of a community of like minded people with a passion for helping others as well as fulfilment of helping to improve the experience of students.
You will also gain knowledge and understanding of the Students’ Union and University which can act as a springboard into other term-time leadership positions across the organisation along with key transferable skills such as communication, organisation, and interpersonal skills.
