We need your help

(4 September 2020)

Over the next couple of weeks we will be welcoming students from all around the world. We’re looking for staff members to provide a warm and reassuring arrival to University life here at Durham. Your support is greatly appreciated. If you can assist for any amount of time or have any questions please contact the Staff Volunteering team – as a matter of urgency. Please read on for full details.

Date: Sat 12, Sun 13, Sat 19, Sun 20, Mon 21 and Tues 22 September

Time: 9am-6pm approximately

Task: Provide a friendly warm welcome to incoming students. There will be two teams: Staff at Newcastle airport will direct students onto coaches and deal with any issues that arise. At the Durham hub they will direct students into taxis and minibuses for onward travel to their accommodation.

Notes: A comprehensive Risk Assessment and appropriate procedures have been created. All volunteers will be briefed and provided with the adequate PPE to carry out the task.

Volunteer time: Staff Volunteer hours can be used if this falls under your normal working hours and is agreed with your line manager.
