Positions available on the 2015/16 Alumni Telethon Calling team

The Development and Alumni Relations Office is looking to recruit a dedicated team of trained student fundraisers who are passionate about Loughborough and enjoy the opportunity to engage with the alumni community.

Last year’s appeal secured over £120,000 in pledged donations from alumni, and we hope to build on this success, starting this autumn.

The 2015/16 telephone fundraising appeal will run for four weeks, from Sunday 1 of November to Sunday 29 of November, and again for four weeks in term two. During this time, we aim to contact around 7,000 alumni, sharing news and upcoming events at the University, and inviting alumni to support various funds supporting scholarships, prizes, and projects to enhance the ‘Loughborough Experience’ for current students.

The telethon is a great opportunity to boost your CV, and the professional skills you will develop are highly valued by employers. We will support you with training throughout the campaign, and you will have the opportunity to speak to alumni who studied a similar course and who have lots of careers advice to offer. It's a great networking opportunity, not only other current students but with alumni as well.

Applications to become one of the calling team this year are open now and close at noon on Wednesday 14 October.
