Fill your heart with warmth – volunteer at Open Day | Rā Tōmene

Looking for something to do during the mid-year break? Something to make you feel good and like you’re helping others? Well, we’ve got an opportunity for you and it includes free stuff!!

The Events and Partnerships team are seeking enthusiastic volunteers to share their knowledge and experience of UC while having a bit of fun with our future students, families and whānau at Open Day | Rā Tōmene – Thursday 12 July, 9.00am – 5.00pm.

We need you to volunteer in the following roles:

Supplier of smiles – you have a great smile and enjoy making people happy.
We want you along our Open Day trails to warmly welcome our visitors to UC. Hand out tote bags, scan tickets, greet those coming from out of town on the free bus, and wave them goodbye at the end of the day. You take care of those all-important frontline tasks, wearing a big smile on your face.

Foot traffic controller – you’re there to help people find their way.
You love the buzz of people gathering, ready to learn. Every hour a new information session begins and you’ll be at the front of the line, managing the flow of people in and out of lecture theatres and helping people find the right session.

And now for the FREE stuff! For your trouble you get a cool tee shirt to wear (and keep), a drink bottle, UC scarf and all the tea, coffee and hot chocolate you can drink from the volunteer’s kitchen.
