SHU volunteering policy – visit our pop-up stand and drop-in sessions

SHU’s school/college governor policy and the new volunteering policy now provides staff with paid time to participate in meaningful voluntary activities that make a difference to people’s lives and support the local community.

On Wednesday 8th January we will be holding a Volunteering Pop-Up stand in partnership with Education and Employers. We’ll provide more information on how you can get involved/sign up to volunteering opportunities such as becoming a school/ college governor or providing one off volunteering events with schools and colleges such as subject and careers talks, mock-interviews and CV tips.

If you have any questions or would like to sign up please come and find us at:

  • Cutting Edge between 9-1pm
  • Heart of the Campus between 2-5pm

You can also see the South Yorkshire Talent Bank website to find more about the volunteer opportunities we are championing:

Volunteering drop-in sessions:

Not sure how to use your volunteering or Governor’s Leave?

Last year, the University introduced a new volunteering policy which actively encourages staff to undertake volunteering activities by providing paid time off work, on top of the existing volunteering policy to become a school or college governor.

As staff, you now have the opportunity to make a difference to young people’s lives and support the local community. If you’ve got questions over how the policy works, what sort of volunteering opportunities are available in the region through our partnership with Education and Employers and beyond, and how to get involved, please come along to one of our drop-in sessions on:

Monday 13th January, 12-2pm, Heart of the Campus HC.016

Tuesday 14th January, 12-2pm, Owen 922

Take a look at the South Yorkshire Talent Bank website​ to find out more about the volunteer opportunities we are championing, and ask any questions.
