Welcome Committee Project Manager

It's your job to manage the Welcome Committee members, as well as monitoring progress and communicating info and updates to SU staff, University staff and Committee members. This all has the aim of making sure the project is delivered on time, to budget and in line with your SU's values.

You'll also monitor resources and risks and allocate tasks, raising any issues and concerns to keep your team co-operative, motivated and successful.

Welfare Coordinator

You'll work together with Zoe, your Equal Opportunities and Welfare Officer, Students' Union Advice, and the University's Student Services to make sure that welfare is a priority across Welcome.

You'll make sure mentors have all the signposting information they need, as well as making a note of any students that mentors are concerned about during the week and passing the info on to tutors and wardens within the Hall for follow up.

You'll also coordinate a small team of welfare administrators who'll support welfare procedures during Welcome.

Lead Mentor Coordinator

Working with the Students' Union Volunteering department, you'll be responsible for recruiting Welcome mentors and making sure they're fully equipped and supported to successfully do their jobs.

Postgraduate Coordinator

It'll be your job to make sure that the Welcome programme considers and meets the needs of all postgraduate students. This includes coordinating a small team of postgraduate volunteers as part of the Postgraduate Subcommittee.

International Coordinator

It'll be your responsibility to make sure that the Welcome programme considers and meets the needs of international students. You'll work with Students' Union staff to influence and plan engagement and involvement with the University's International Student Welcome programme.

Associations and Outreach Coordinator

You'll be responsible for making sure those students based at the Derby, Sutton Bonington and Jubilee campuses, as well as those ‘living out' of University halls, are included within the Welcome programme.

Events Coordinator (x4)

As one of four Events Coordinators, you'll work closely with your Students' Union and the Welcome Committee to create, plan and deliver lots of different activities and events across the day, evening and night that students can take part in.
