Student auditor recruitment

Gain the skills and knowledge associated with environmental auditing by becoming a Green Impact student auditor. We have an exciting volunteer opportunity for Leeds Beckett students – the Green Impact scheme hosted by NUS will give you the opportunity to meet the teams and see how Leeds Beckett staff are acting responsibly and being sustainable in their daily activities.

Many of our staff teams have shown effective and innovative ideas and practices across their offices to be more sustainable. Sustainability is a prevailing issue which is ever increasing in all aspects of day to day life, requiring most of us to make changes to the way we live our lives. Some of these changes are significant, some are minute but even those minute changes, collectively add up to make a big difference.

Plus Icon Green impact

Green Impact is a sustainability accreditation programme with an awards element, designed to encourage, support and celebrate departments in making sustainable changes to their workplace. Interested staff have been working through a toolkit of practical sustainability criteria over the year, such as only using recycled paper, or implementing a bespoke sustainability project.

Depending on the number of actions departments have carried out, they can achieve a Bronze, Silver or Gold award. All departments participating in Green Impact will need an audit to verify their level of achievement… and this is where you come in!

Plus Icon Auditing opportunities

We are looking for volunteer auditors to visit the departments and conduct audits. Each volunteer auditor will be fully trained on the criteria and what they need to do in order to audit through a half-day of training. In pairs auditors will then complete one or more audit. An audit should take around an hour to complete depending on the size of the department.

Plus Icon What skills do I need

No technical knowledge is needed as full training will be provided. All you need is an interest in sustainability issues, and the confidence to work with other students to visit a staff department.

Please get in touch if you’re eager to get involved with Green Impact in an auditing capacity, or if you have any further questions.

Whats the next stage?

  • Ensure you are free all day (11am – 5pm) on Wednesday 27th November 2019.
  • Email with your interest. Spaces are limited, so apply soon!
