Advertising volunteering opportunities

Student page

Discover how to register to advertise your volunteering opportunities and guidelines for putting together a great advert.

You can register your organisation and advertise volunteering opportunities to Goldsmiths students through CareerSPACE.

First you must register with CareerSPACE.

Once you have registered we have to approve your organisation, and you will receive email confirmation when this is done.

Once you have received this confirmation you will be able to log in, choose a password and post opportunities as well as exploring future event opportunities on campus. These opportunities are also moderated and will be subject to approval, so they do not appear immediately on the platform.

Advertising Your Volunteering Opportunities – Guidelines for External Opportunity Providers

In order to promote a volunteering role we ask that the role fits the following guidelines where possible. Volunteering opportunities should:

  • Be ideally local to Goldsmiths
  • Provided by a charity or not-for-profit organisation
  • Be clear on what tasks the volunteer is expected to undertake
  • Offer a clear opportunity for our students to develop their skills
  • Align with the aspirations, needs and academic studies of our students
  • Not conflict with our policies and procedures
  • Be a genuine volunteering position and does not replace the work of paid staff members
  • Have been adequately risk assessed
  • Not be described as an internship to avoid confusion with our paid opportunities

To advertise your role we need the following from you:

  • A role description
  • Your volunteering policy and/or agreement
  • Your Health & Safety policy
  • Your Equalities & Diversity/Equal Opportunities Policy
  • Details of a named point of contact for the Careers Service

The role description that we advertise should include:

  • A brief overview of the organisation advertising the opportunity
  • Title of the volunteering role
  • Tasks and responsibilities of the role
  • How the volunteer will benefit from undertaking the role
  • The location of the opportunity
  • Frequency and time involved
  • The skills and attributes a volunteer is expected to have, including any specific characteristics sought or restrictions in place on who can volunteer
  • Details of a named point of contact for the volunteer
  • How to apply for the opportunity

We can provide support to help ensure that we can promote your role as widely as possible.

Please contact Mark or Fergus at employer-events ( or call 020 7919 7631 if you have any questions or need further help.
