We need you – volunteer at Open Day | Rā Tōmene

To be more exact we need 100 of you to volunteer at UC Open Day | Rā Tōmene, Thursday 12 July.

Open Day | Rā Tōmene is our key recruitment event for future students, parents and whānau, and its success depends on staff throughout UC. Volunteering is a great opportunity to meet future students and enjoy the atmospheric buzz this event creates on campus.

We need volunteers in the following roles, can you help?

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.

Information guru – providing help and support is your gig.
We have stations on campus just for you this Open Day | Rā Tōmene. You’ll assist visitors with any questions they have, from where to get a good coffee to what time the next info session starts.

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.

Data gatherer – you’ll happily ask people what they think.
iPad in hand, we need you to approach attendees with a smile to get their feedback on Open Day | Rā Tōmene. Using the pre-populated survey online, you will ensure we get the data we require to keep running successful events.

Campus explorer – you know the campus well and can’t wait to show it off.
We need you to take small groups of visitors on a loop of the campus, pointing out all the key buildings and facilities, especially the sparkly new ones, to help them get a feel for UC. You’ll answer questions as you go and point out where things are happening throughout the day.

The day runs from 9.00am to 5.00pm and is based in the centre of the Ilam campus. Volunteers are usually scheduled for a morning or afternoon session.

Register your interest by filling in the online form, but please check in with your manager first.

Thanks for your support to make this event a success.
