Volunteering with OUSA is a great way to get involved on campus, help other students, see shows for free, and get experience for your CV! Volunteers are the lifeblood of OUSA and the only requirements are a great attitude and a willingness to help out.

Events volunteers help at every OUSA gig including Orientation, Re-Orientation, The Dunedin Craft Beer and Food Festival, Hyde Street, Art Week, Battle of the Bands, the infamous Capping Show, Future DJ competition, and the Market Days. Gain firsthand experience running some of the biggest and best student events in the country!

This team provides water, a chill out space and the opportunity to connect students with peers during OUSA events, as well as a safe ride home after the events. With full training and supervision provided, it’s a very interesting (and hilarious!) time.

This role requires a 12 month commitment following a full day of training. Student Interns will then prepare their own job description in conjunction with the OUSA Queer Support Coordinator depending on how best they can support the work of the Queer Support team.
