Please bear in mind the following application deadlines:

Friday 15th September - 'Last chance' applications


How to Apply for Team Leader roles

The 'early bird' round of applications for Team Leaders close on Friday 18th August at 12pm. To apply, please download an application form and return it to volunteering@leedsbeckett.ac.uk together with a copy of your passport.

How volunteers are selected

We try to make the selection process as fair as possible. Selection is based on suitability for the role and whether the individual will be suitable for the trip overall, how we feel the individual will fit in with the overall group and in some cases we may also take into account the potential for personal development.

If your application isn't successful

If you submit an application form and are not shortlisted, we'll let you know by email. If you are turned down at interview or selection-day stage, we'll phone you to let you know and we'll also keep you on a back up list in case anyone drops out. In both cases you are very welcome to apply for other projects.

Who can apply?

  • Most current Leeds Beckett Students and recent graduates. Unfortunately students on evening classes are not eligible.
  • Leeds Beckett staff who are on a contract. Unfortunately, Job Shop staff are not eligible.
  • All students will need to gain permission from their personal tutor to participate and members of staff will need permission from their line manager.

Applying for more than one project

It is possible to apply for more than one project at a time and you will be asked on your form and at interview whether you are applying for any other projects. You will need apply for each trip separately and complete the relevant form. Please remember that different skills and experience will be required for each volunteering opportunity so you will need to tailor your application to the opportunity you are applying for. There is no limit to how many trips you can apply for but for each additional trip you go on priority will be given to first-time volunteers and because places and funding are limited we cannot provide any help with funding for repeat volunteers. 

If you can't decide which trip is best for you talk to us as soon as possible! It's a difficult situation because you are not guaranteed a place on the trip of your choice and the recruitment for each trip happens at a different time. The best thing is to come to a drop-in session so that you can discuss your options or if that's not possible email us.
