We need you!


EDIT - When I first wrote this blog, it was March. It's now the middle of April and we've got some new dates and new info! I'm going to be adding a new bit about various roles and you can download a copy of the volunteer FAQs (as well as other documentation) here.


Since The Big Bang Fair (full blog post here), we've had lots of request for OR professionals to visit schools and talk to people about what they do. The below opportunities are just a selection we've received; there are many more! 

If you have an hour or two (or longer) to spare at some point, and are happy to chat to a school or college about what you do (we get requests from Year 8's all the way to sixth form students) then please get in touch. Alternatively, if you'd like to help at an event (usually less formal, drop in activities rather than a talk, all day rather than a specific time and generally multiple volunteers) we have plenty of them too!

We'd love to hear from you either way.
