“Student life is not always the party people might think it is” Stephen Fry, long-term supporter of Nightline.
A fantastic opportunity has come up to volunteer with the University’s Nightline service. Volunteering is a always a worthwhile and rewarding activity and employers are keen to see that you haven’t just spent your time at University hiding in the Robinson Library. This particular opportunity is a great way to improve your communication skills; particularly active listening and interpersonal skills.
Here’s the email we received – don’t worry if the deadline has passed, it’s still worth getting in touch with the Secretary to see if there are still opportunities available to get involved.
“I am emailing on behalf of Newcastle Nightline, the student listening service. We are looking to recruit new volunteers this term. We are holding an information evening to tell interested students more about what volunteering will involve on Thursday 5th February 6pm, Leech building seminar room L2.2 (access via Medical school). It will be a short talk of no more than half an hour. We think this could be of interest to you. It is a great thing to put on your CV and a fulfilling society to be a part of!
If you have any queries do not hesitate to get in touch,
