Available Positions

UG Welcome Mentor

Welcome Mentors are the first point of contact for new students and additional support for returning students. You will be there to make sure that new students feel settled and at ease during that first intimidating and exciting week, as well as highlighting to all students the Welcome Programme and opportunities available through your Students' Union.

Mentors are based at all the locations where we have new students arriving at the University. Hall based mentors will be placed on rotas to support activities including: settling new students into halls/campuses, hall based events and a minimum of two late night events during the main welcome period. Campus based mentors will be placed on rotas to act as ambassadors for their campus; their responsibilities will differ, based on the specifics of the campus.

PG Welcome Mentor

As a PG Welcome Mentor, you'll be involved in offering support for incoming postgrads, enabling you to make connections with new, like-minded students and help them settle in to university. Being a PG Mentor can include organising Welcome Week events, attending the events and welcoming the students under the guidance of our Welcome Committee and SU staff. These skills can be applied to areas relevant to PGs such as events management, collaboration skills, networking skills and communication skills. PGs involved in Welcome often continue onto helping organise the University's Link Conferences and programmes for PGs throughout the year.

If you have any questions about the PG mentor role, please e-mail Kelda.skey@nottingham.ac.uk.

UG Lead Mentor

As Lead Mentor, it is your responsibility to ensure that all of your mentors are doing their roles properly. You will be the main line of contact between the committee, hall staff, SU staff and mentor team, managing the mentor rotas and making sure that all of the students in that location are feeling happy and settled.
