Liverpool Guild of Students is looking for volunteers to run Nightline – the new overnight information and listening service.
The service, which is set to launch in February 2016, will give students at the University the opportunity to speak to student volunteers about anything – from bus times and general queries, to support when they are feeling low or stressed.
The service will be open all week between 8pm until 8am, and will need around 60 trained volunteers to run.
Deputy President of the Guild, Alex Ferguson, said: “Being a Nightline Volunteer is a great opportunity to learn and develop new skills, in particular communication and listening skills, as well as teamwork. You will have the opportunity to help and support fellow students as well as receiving comprehensive training and support from the Guild.”
The deadline for applications is Friday, 9 October 2015.
