About the Scheme

The Recruitment Events Team runs the Student Recruitment Representatives Scheme. The Scheme gives you the opportunity to work on the University's recruitment events, such as Applicant and Open Days. Student Recruitment Reps gain key skills that graduate employers look for, from leadership, team working and communication skills to problem solving, initiative and commercial awareness. If you want to meet future students, showcase your subject and share your student experiences, this is a great opportunity for you.
