Are you keen to forward plan? Would you like to secure yourself a role for when the examinations period ends?
The fundraising team is preparing for the Alumni Fundraising scheme which will start 1st June and they are looking to bring on board a new cohort of student fundraisers.
The telephone campaign lasts for 3 weeks and calling takes place on weekday evenings (Mon-Thu, 6pm – 9pm) and during the daytime at weekends. You will be expected to work for at least 3 shifts a week (two weeknights and one weekday), and attend two full days of training, which take place at the weekend before the campaign starts.
The aim of the telephone campaign is to keep alumni in touch with news from Reading today, encourage them to remain in contact with the University, and ask for donations. Our donors enhance the student experience by supporting bursaries, scholarships and student focused projects that would not otherwise be possible. All telephone calls to alumni are made by current students at the University, under the supervision of the Campaigns and Supporter Engagement Office.
