Opportunity Society

Welcome to the official 2019-2020 Opportunity Society page!

In the Opportunity Society we aim to offer volunteering opportunities in partnership with New Ventures Trust and local businesses and companies. We want to help you gain employability skills and career awareness to help you prepare for the future.

The society is open to anyone from any background, regardless of course discipline who might like to; take part in some voluntering and give a few hours a week, has an interest in developing key skills for careers and attend workshops, take part in society trips and outings, want to help curate the running of the society, or simply take part in socials and fundraising events.

Our society wants you to make the most of your time at the University of Gloucestershire and give you the 'Opportunity' to utilise experiences alongside your studies and spare time to get the most out of your degree.

Within the society we will:

  • volunteer to help run the New Ventures Trust charity
  • run skills workshops in partnership with the Growth Hub to learn skills that you would not learn in lectures
  • help younger students
  • attend a range of dynamic career networking events
  • organise fundraising events
  • help students to take advantage of being involved within their subject area or other areas
  • organise fun bi-weekly socials 
  • bank volunteer hours to be accredited at the end of year awards ceremony, both privately within the society and collectively with the UoG Students Union Gnomies event, giving students the opportunity to be recognised for their efforts and the society as a whole.

Come and find us at the Freshers Fayre 18th September 2019 to find out more and sign up for the Stroud Brewery Tour event in November!
