Volunteering at Graduation

We have a fantastic opportunity for staff and students to support Commemoration Day on the 18 October 2017. The success of Graduation depends on the skills, time and energy of many staff and students. We are very grateful to all of our volunteers who help us make Imperial College's graduation a day to remember.

There will be a huge number of volunteer slots available.  For staff, please sign up to volunteer at the 2017 Graduation (external link)  For students, please sign up to volunteer at the 2017 Graduation (external link)

These opportunities range from two-hour early bird set-up tasks at the start of the day to all day stints across campus and the Royal Albert Hall. There are behind the scenes roles, such as set up, supporting VIPs through to putting out programmes, meeting and greeting visitors, supporting receptions across campus and supporting information points.  You can select which role is best for you.

Volunteering can give you the opportunity to try something new, gain experience, develop skills, improve your career prospects, build confidence, meet new people and have fun!  

Another great incentive is that every volunteer will also receive a ticket to one of the graduation receptions where you will get a free glass of prosecco or juice and some cake in addition to spending time with graduates and their guests!  Additionally if you volunteer for four or more hours you'll receive a £5.00 meal voucher to be used in one of the campus outlets

All volunteers will be requested to attend a briefing session scheduled in early October, where you will receive a briefing pack and an amazing graduation T-shirt.
