The Alumni Relations team from the Office of the Vice-Provost – Development (OVPD), is currently recruiting Graduation Assistant roles.

UCL Graduation Assistant roles: applications now open

OVPD is looking for outgoing and reliable students to play a vital role in this year’s graduation ceremonies, held throughout July and September. The Graduation Assistant role is part-time and students will be paid £11.46 per hour plus holiday pay.

At quieter times, you may also be required to man the Alumni stand, providing information on the range of benefits available to UCL alumni and handing out free merchandise. Full training will be provided.

Shifts are available on the following dates: July 2, 3, 4, July 25, 26, 27, September 3, 4, 5, and 6.
