Northumbria University Sport offers all students the opportunity to become involved in our Student Development programme - the first stage of which is volunteering.
Becoming part of this programme is your chance to get a first foot on the ladder within a vibrant, well recognised and well respected sports organisation and to gain valuable, professional workplace experience. It also allows you to become an integral part of Northumbria University Sport as a whole and to represent and be part of our team.
If you are serious about a career in sport, the Northumbria University Sport Volunteer programme is the place to start! Volunteering with us will stand you in good stead if you would like to apply for any internship positions or part time roles in subsequent years.
Northumbria University Sport offers you basic volunteer training and role specific training before you start any of your voluntary work in your chosen strand. This includes free Safeguarding Children and First Aid courses, as well as a free CRB Check (all valuable tools for your career in sport)
Upon completion of your introductory training, you will receive kit which you will be expected to wear during your voluntary placement. You will also receive ongoing support from workshops which will be provided throughout the year to address areas including application writing and interview techniques and additional sports related courses.
