Description

Orientation Day | Herea tō Waka 2020 is on Friday 14 February. This is our opportunity to welcome new students onto campus creating a sense of belonging on their first day.

The events team is looking for volunteers for the following roles:

Supplier of Smiles – you have a great smile and enjoy making people happy.
We want you along our trails to warmly welcome our visitors to UC. Hand out tote bags, food and high fives, greeting all those new to UC students. You take care of those all-important frontline tasks, wearing a big smile on your face.

Information guru – providing help and support is your gig.
How do I get to C Block? My first lecture is in K1 on Monday, where would I find it?
These are easy questions for you and it’s your pleasure to help people find their way. You know campus well and can point people in the right direction (or point them to someone who can!)

Session Greeter – you’re there to scan people into sessions
Scanner in hand, you are the master of efficiency checking them into sessions all the while being that friendly face on their first day.

Data gatherer – you’ll happily ask people what they think.
iPad in hand, we need you to approach attendees with a smile to get their feedback on Orientation Day | Herea tō Waka. Using the pre-populated survey online, you will ensure we get the data we require to keep running successful events.

Campus explorer – you know the campus well and can’t wait to show it off.
We need you to take small groups of visitors on a loop of the campus, pointing out all the key buildings and facilities, especially the sparkly new ones, to help them get a feel for UC. You’ll answer questions as you go and point out where things are happening throughout the day.

Volunteering on the day is a great opportunity to meet new students and to experience the buzz of Orientation Day Day | Herea tō Waka. Please register for a single role, however if you are interested in working the full day you can register for the morning and afternoon shift for the same role.

If you are not able to commit to a full shift but are interested in volunteering, please email us at events@canterbury.ac.nz and we can accommodate this. If you are able to do more than one shift (in the same role or two different roles) please do let us know!

The day runs from 9.30am to 2.30pm and is based in the centre of the Ilam campus. Please note you will need to commit to attending the event briefing at 10am, Wednesday 12 February 2020.
