Ways to help us

We know that many of our alumni and friends are keen to remain closely connected with the life and work of the university – one simple yet extremely fulfilling way to achieve this is to volunteer for the university in some capacity.

Alumni Advice Network
If you are interested in volunteering your time and expertise, there are a number of ways you can do this through our new Alumni Advice Network. This scheme brings together all the varied volunteer opportunities available for alumni and friends. No matter what your particular area of expertise is or the amount of time you have spare to volunteer, there will be an opportunity for you to participate.

Alumni Advisory Board

We are always interested to hear from alumni who would like to join the Alumni Advisory Board – this is a representative body of alumni who provide feedback, advice and suggestions on our alumni engagement activities. Both this Board and the Alumni Advice Network are highly valued by the university and we very much appreciate the support of all those alumni involved.

  • a pool of prospective staff with a wide range of skills and experience, from IT and engineering to languages and marketing;
  • help with your recruitment process, including issuing your own or standard application forms and helping to arrange interviews with students and;
  • free advertising of your vacancies.

Become a mentor
Momentum is an award-winning mentoring scheme set up by the University of Brighton Careers Service. It aims to pair university students who wish to gain employability skills and confidence with professionals and managers who wish to share their experience. Please see the link to the left for more information.

Recruit a graduate intern
A graduate intern can bring new skills, fresh ideas and a different perspective into your organisation on a short term basis. This might be for a specific project, or to increase your capacity at a certain time.
