Callers at Autumn training day

Callers at the training day

Join our team

Would you like to help your University raise money for the student experience? We are recruiting Telephone Fundraisers for our campaign which will run from 30th January to 5th March 2017.

As a Telephone Fundraiser, your role will be to ask Exeter graduates for financial gifts towards the University. You will also inform them about what is currently happening at Exeter and answer any queries they may have. You can read more about the projects the campaign helps to fund on our web page.

There are thousands of alumni who have studied and experienced life at Exeter University. As a student caller you have the opportunity to telephone alumni who have had similar University experiences to you, find out more about Exeter’s past and keep them up-to-date with recent developments.

You do not have to have any experience of telephone fundraising or telesales as full training is given – we just look for a positive and enthusiastic attitude and an ability to talk about your experiences at Exeter!

We pay our students £8.25 per hour, and are currently recruiting students to work on our next campaign. If you would like more details about the role, please read the Job Description or contact
