Help international students find accommodation

Issued: Mon, 19 Jun 2017 16:34:00 BST

In return for giving up a few hours on a regular basis between late June and early September, volunteers are given training in how to carry out checks on private accommodation to make sure it is safe to live in. Volunteers carry out viewings in pairs with a check-list to complete.

They will be making telephone calls and asking questions about a property, so should be fluent in spoken and written English.

Volunteering with this service assists with the development of graduate attributes and gives you useful new skills. Additionally, volunteers aged under 26 will be able to claim Saltire Award for their hours via the time log on their volunteering account.

Public transport costs can be reimbursed.

To apply please email by Friday 30th June, with the subject heading PAVS and stating why you want to volunteer in not more than 200 words
