Student fundraisers required for Glasgow Caledonian University Foundation campaign

Students can earn £8.25 per hour

The Glasgow Caledonian University Foundation team is looking for hardworking students to work on its annual telephone campaign, starting in February 2016.

The campaign involves speaking to GCU alumni and helping to re-establish and strengthen their relationship with their old University. Alumni are asked to make gifts to the Foundation which will support student services, including clubs and societies, and fund scholarships.

Glasgow Caledonian University Foundation, the operating name for GCU’s charitable fundraising activities, was launched in 2015. It works to support the University’s commitment to the common good by raising funds to transform lives through education and research to deliver social benefit.

As well as earning £8.25 per hour, working with the Foundation is a great opportunity for students to improve their communication skills and gain valuable experience for their CV. Students will learn a lot about the University and educational fundraising in general, have the chance to talk to graduates of all ages and backgrounds, and be part of a friendly, sociable and hard-working team.

Calling sessions will take place on campus from Monday, February 15, to Thursday, March 10. Weekday calling shifts will be 6.15pm to 9.30pm. Weekend shifts will be 10am to 5pm on Saturday and 3pm to 8pm on Sunday. Callers will be required to work a minimum of two weekdays and one weekend shift per week.

Students must be available for training on Saturday and Sunday, February 13 and 14.

Those interested in this opportunity are asked to complete a short online application. The closing date for applications is Sunday, January 31.

Due to the nature of this role, we are unable to sponsor individuals under the Tier 2 PBS route. To apply for this vacancy, applicants must have the continued right to live and work in the United Kingdom for the duration of the contract.
