“I first started volunteering internally at Studenteer HQ as a press officer back during lockdown in November 2020. In this role, I had the opportunity to secure press coverage for the team. My favourite part of this probably being the interviews I got to organise between various university newspapers and Studenteer, as well as the exciting feeling of seeing my own writing published! I then moved into a bigger and more varied role as Head of PR. As a people person, I loved (virtually) meeting and creating partnerships with some inspiring organisations, working with the marcomms team on our fun campaigns, and much more. When I’m passionate about something, I can make anything happen!”.
“I was a Charity Engagement Assistant. My work included liaising with different charities, creating projects briefs, and matching students to the available roles. I think of volunteering at Studenteer as a playground. You can explore what you like and what you don’t like, expand your network and knowledge, train yourself, work on the skills you want to excel in, while being in an organisation that’s very supportive of your growth as an individual. You could be involved in whichever departments you’re interested in!”
“Being the Partnerships Assistant, I looked out for organizations and teams that would be interested in collaboration, as well as aligned with the PR objectives of Studenteer. I also brainstormed ideas and worked with other volunteers in the PR team to understand how Studenteer could collaborate with universities across the UK. The greatest accomplishment was the chance to interact with volunteers. Talking to new people and expanding my notion of different industries has always been enjoyable. And with being the partnerships face for Studenteer, I was happy to grow in the role.”
“I started as an intern, doing a Digital Industry campaign. Then I became a Projects & Matching Assistant. After that, I was Head of Projects & Matching. And finally, I became Head of Operations. Each role was totally different, but they all led me to the place I wanted to be, doing something I love, which is to manage the entire operations pipeline, mentoring the team members and helping the team find its way to success. At the end, being Head of Operations was the most fulfilling role I had. My biggest achievement was rebuilding our entire team from scratch. We changed Studenteer’s internal structure from the ground up, and started 2022 afresh! Volunteering provides you with an opportunity to experiment around and work without pressures or expectations.”
