The team would also like to invite staff to volunteer to help at the next undergraduate Open Day on Friday 20 September, the last one of 2019.
Open Day volunteering provides an opportunity for staff to share their enthusiasm for the University with prospective applicants, their friends and families. The role involves welcoming visitors and giving directions. A full briefing is provided and no specialist knowledge about the admissions process is required. As volunteers work as part of a team it is also a great way to meet colleagues from across the University.
What volunteers said after last year’s Open Days:
- ‘I loved being a part of the buzz and nervous excitement that radiated from visitors.’
- ‘It was great to talk to parents and students alike whilst bonding with colleagues from other departments.’
- ‘I thoroughly enjoyed talking to potential students of Oxford, and not only did it help them, it also further increased my knowledge of the University.’
To volunteer, whether for a few hours or a full day, please seek permission from your line manager and then click on this link to sign up.
