Freshers’ Helper Applications

Got a few weeks free at the end of summer? Want to meet some amazing people and help new students? Then why not think of applying to be a Freshers’ Helper!

Freshers’ Helper applications are now open!

Freshers’ Helpers 

To be an SRC Freshers’ Helper, you must be available from the 6th-19th of September 2021 for Training and Freshers’ Week itself to be considered.

Meet and Greet Team 

Within our team of fantastic Freshers’ Helpers, we are also recruiting our dedicated Meet and Greet Freshers’ Helper team. Members of this team will have a slightly different daytime timetable which is focused on supporting and making Freshers’ Week as inclusive as possible for ‘non-traditional’ students (such as mature students, students with disabilities, carers’, parents and so on) so that they can take full advantage of all opportunities Freshers’ Week presents. If you’re interested in joining this helper team, make sure you tick yes on Question 22 of the Application Form which will take you to a separate section about the Meet and Greet team. 

We are keen to encourage helpers from these non-traditional groups to apply for the Meet and Greet team, and so we’re happy for Meet and Great helpers to help part-time to work around medical, family or similar commitments.

How to Apply 

You can apply and submit your application online.

Applications will close on Friday 18th June at 5pm.

Follow up interviews may be conducted via phone/Zoom in mid/late July – so make sure to let us know what number you will be using during your holidays!

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Amy McKenzie Smith, VP Student Activities at OR you can check out our Guide to being an SRC Freshers’ Helper (2020)!
