Student Telephone Fundraisers Wanted

24 April 2015

Student caller and 'Jeremy Bentham'

UCL's Development & Alumni Relations Office (DARO) is looking for outgoing and reliable students to play a vital role in its highly successful fundraising campaigns.

DARO is currently recruiting a team of students to call graduates of UCL, to talk to them about their experiences here and ask them to support UCL with a donation. Every penny raised goes towards supporting students in some way, meaning you will personally have a direct impact on a valuable and worthy cause.

This is an opportunity for current students to enhance their CVs whilst earning £11.00 per hour (plus holiday pay).

Further information

Get shortlisted - recruitment sessions on 26-28 May

If you’re shortlisted, you’ll be invited to a recruitment session where you’ll be asked some questions and complete a practice phone call. These will take place between Tuesday 26 May and Thursday 28 May.

Get trained - training will take place on 7 and 8 June

You’ll be paid for this if you complete the minimum shift requirement. Training is 10am-4pm on Sunday 7 June and 6pm-9pm on Monday 8 June. There will also be a session of refresher training on Friday 3 July from 5pm-7pm. We cannot consider your application unless you can attend all of these sessions so please don’t apply if you aren’t able to attend. At training, we’ll ask you to sign up for your preferred shifts for the whole of a 6 week campaign.

Get earning from 9 June


The first day of calling will be Tuesday 9 June and the campaign will run for 8 weeks (until Sunday 2 August). You’ll be expected to commit to work an absolute minimum of 2 shifts a week on average throughout the campaign (you can do more shifts if you wish)

You’ll have to be able to work both weekdays and weekends (see shift times below). We’ll ask you in your application to tell us how many shifts you’re likely to work each week. This helps us to plan the campaign, so please be as accurate as you can.

The shifts are:

  • Weekdays: Mondays to Thursdays - 5.50pm to 9.30pm (1 shift per day):
  • Weekends: Saturday and Sundays - 2.50pm to 6pm, and 6.20pm to 9.30pm (2 shifts a day)
