Would you like to be a volunteer Ambassador for the University Counselling Service?
If you have experience of the University Counselling Service, in any capacity, you have valuable insight into how we work. You may be well placed to let others know about what is on offer and what to expect. NB you don't necessarily need to have engaged with counselling to apply.
The sort of things you may be involved with as UCS Ambassador are:
- Letting other students and possibly staff know about the University Counselling Service and promoting some key messages or busting some myths about counselling or the counsellling service
Meeting occasionally with the other Ambassadors in a small focus-group setting to offer insights in to how the University Counselling Service can improve how it runs
Being a contact point for the University Counselling Service to seek your guidance from your student/staff perspective (we might email you to ask for your thoughts/idea/views)
Being the Representative at open days and other events where the University Counselling Service may have a stall
It is anticipated that the time involvement would be minimal and on an ad hoc basis to suit you and your time availability.
As well as supporting fellow students/staff you will also develop useful transferrable skills.
If you’re interested, please email Samantha.email@example.com and you will be invited in for a brief discussion about the role.
The role of Ambassador for the UCS is open to both students and staff.
