Applications invited for telephone fundraisers

The closing date for applications is 1pm on Thursday, 25 September.

Essential requirements:  

  • Current University of Liverpool student with a genuine enthusiasm for the University
  • Must enjoy speaking to people
  • Excellent telephone manner
  • Must have a good working knowledge of the University
  • Reliable
  • Flexible
  • Adaptable
  • Enthusiastic

Hours and dates:

Interviews will be held Wednesday, 1 October and Thursday, 2 October and applicants must be available to attend a short interview during this time.

All successful applicants will be required to attend a compulsory full day of training on Saturday, 11 October.  Calling will take place between 6.00pm and 9.30pm Monday to Thursday and Sunday 5.00pm to 8.00pm for the campaign period. Callers will be required to work at least 2 to 3 shifts per week.

There is also the opportunity to work on an additional campaign, calling the USA and Canada during night shifts (Monday, 17 November – Thursday, 20 November).
