Welcome Team Assistant (various roles)

Please note that this role is only open to current University of Leeds students or recent graduates.

Do you want to help new students feel welcome at the University? Would you like to be part of a team delivering high quality support and activities for new students from all over the world? 

As a member of the welcome team during the summer or in September, you’ll work in a range of different environments to meet new students’ needs and help them to settle into their new life and enjoy being part of our Global Community. 

If you’re working in the summer, you’ll be providing support for international students in the Language Centre taking 10-week or 6-week courses in preparation for starting an undergraduate or postgraduate programme. At the start you’ll provide welcome and start-up support as an Information Assistant. As students progress on their course, you’ll act as a Global Community Assistant, supporting students’ social and cultural experience.

In summer and autumn arrival periods, Information Assistants answer a wide range of questions, give welcome information, support with start-up tasks such as registration and opening a bank account, lead orientation tours and provide other help new international and UK students may need. 

Global Community Assistants facilitate social and cultural activities such as Global Café, and contribute to other student experience projects. 

In September new international students are met at Leeds Bradford Airport and Leeds Train Station by Meet and Greet Assistants, who work in pairs to ensure students receive a friendly welcome as soon as they arrive and have somewhere to stay for their first night. They also make sure students know where to go and what to do next. 

If international students are looking for somewhere to live when they arrive in September, Accommodation Assistants explain the choices available and give further assistance with the renting process.

All team members help develop a sense of community and support new students to engage with University and LUU activities, services and opportunities.
