GET INVOLVED WITH UCDSU

Community Rep

Description of role

The role of a Community Rep is an ideal opportunity for those who are interested in volunteering or helping out at events, but don’t have the availability to sign up for regular or on-going activities. 

UCD Students’ Union cares deeply about improving the student experience for all of its members.

This year, we plan to run a series of events (both on and off campus) this year to foster a sense of community and improve the student experience for all members of UCD.

Community Reps will sign up to our volunteering programme and can volunteer for as many (or as few) events that they wish.

The role offers great flexibility – allowing the individual to volunteer only at events that they have the availability for / are interested in.

Some of the events that Community Reps can choose to volunteer at include:

  • Oktoberfest

  • Halloween “Monster” Ball

  • Christmas Market

  • SHAG Week

  • Careers & Trade Union Week

  • Green Week

 

Level of involvement

Variable – Community Reps can choose which events they would like to sign up for on a case-by-case basis.

Training and Support

All Community Reps will receive “Introduction to UCDSU” training and will be supervised and supported by the General Manager and Entertainments & Operations Coordinator.

All Community Reps will receive manual handling training prior to being asked to undertake any event set-up or take-down tasks.

Rewards / Benefits

  • Work carried out can be used in your application for the UCD Advantage Award.

  • Opportunity to have an input on the planning and promotion of SU events.

  • The role offers you a great opportunity to make new friends.

  • You will learn practical skills relating to event planning, promotion, and logistics which will look great on your C.V.

  • Recognition and appreciation of all work carried out during the year is celebrated at the Union Awards Night in April.
