Volunteering Opportunities

Our alumni are our best ambassadors. Wherever you are and however much time you have to give, you can help us to improve the experience of current students and fellow alumni by sharing your expertise.

Everyone has different skills and strengths, so we've gathered all of our current volunteering opportunities here in one place to make it easy to find a way to give back that suits you. 

  • Share your careers advice at a Get Connected event

Do you have some great advice and experience to share? Join us as a Get Connected volunteer and meet with other alumni and students seeking face-to-face guidance at one of our regular Get Connected events.

We host regular Get Connected events in London and Bath, and recently hosted our first US event in New York! Future international Get Connected events are planned for Hong Kong, Brussels and San Francisco.

If you would like to join us as a Get Connected volunteer in the UK or abroad, please contact Pippa Beard: p.y.beard@bath.ac.uk.

  •  Run an event in your home town

Every year, our international volunteers help us to host events for hundreds of alumni around the world. Whether it’s organising a round of drinks at your local, hosting a lecture from a visiting professor or arranging a networking evening with alumni in your area, we’re here to help our volunteers make the most of their events. 

We always need fresh volunteers to support our overseas alumni events. If you would like to find out more about becoming an international volunteer, please contact Chris Tickell: c.j.tickell@bath.ac.uk.

  • Become a Reunion Volunteer

Every year we help alumni to organise reunions for their graduating class. Our alumni Reunion Volunteers help to get old friends together for an event to remember. Reunion Volunteers help us to find more alumni and encourage participation in the event, and can act as a contact for any mini-reunions held.

If you would like to become a Reunion Volunteer for the next Alumni Reunion, please contact Pippa Beard: p.y.beard@bath.ac.uk.

  •  Help to grow our international networks

Our overseas networks continue to develop and grow thanks to the support of our international alumni volunteers. From running an online network, such as a LinkedIn or Facebook group, to helping us welcome new placement students to the area, we are always on the lookout for Bath representatives abroad.

Find out more about our international networks or contact Chris Tickell: c.j.tickell@bath.ac.uk.

  • Become an alumni expert online

If you think your experience could be helpful to a current student or graduate searching for the right career, aiming for the next step on the ladder or looking to change direction, join Bath Connection and create an Alumni Expert profile.
