Volunteer opportunities

Guest speaking

The student experience is one of the School’s highest priorities. We are continually looking to enhance the calibre of learning in our classrooms with real commercial experience from the alumni community. Guest speaking is an instrumental way for you to add value and provide insights that inspire the business leaders of tomorrow.

Student recruitment

In a highly competitive environment, selecting the right Business School is not an easy process. As a member of the alumni network you can provide valuable advice and your perspective on what it is like to study at Newcastle University Business School. This will ultimately help new students make a well-informed decision when choosing whether to come and study with us.


In today’s highly competitive business environment, our students face a series of challenges both during study and when they first join the workplace. As a mentor you will share your knowledge of the working environment and provide guidance and support at regular, pre-agreed times, over an agreed period, with your mentee.

You will offer advice on all sorts of issues and challenges such as finding research, writing reports, running a business and giving presentations. Whatever you provide advice for, it will be based on your own professional experiences, which will be invaluable to our students.

Alumni branches 

Alumni branches provide the alumni community with an opportunity to get together either physically or virtually to network, learn, and develop. Whether you wish to connect with other business professional at alumni events, or want a more active role working with fellow alumni and the School Alumni Relations team to develop the AIM Network in your area, there is a place for you.

Becoming involved in or helping found an alumni branch is a great way to meet other alumni, enhance your personal profile, and make business connections that can last a lifetime.

Placements and internships

If you work for or own a company that could benefit from working with our highly talented student body, offering placements or internships is a great way to get involved and help our students develop their talents. While helping our students gain new skills, knowledge, and experience, you will also benefit by having an opportunity to recruit new talent to your organization.

We offer a limited number of case competitions to companies who wish to propose a business case for a team of students to work on as a part of the Global Experience Opportunity programme. Providing a case is an excellent way to source research and recommendations that can inform developing solutions to your company’s business challenges. It also helps our students gain global employability skills in the process.

Volunteer Service Week

The Business School’s Volunteer Service Week (VSW) provides opportunities for alumni, students, and friends – and their families – all over the world to connect through the common act of providing service to others. It’s an easy and exciting way to make a difference in your community by completing a volunteer service project at alumni- and student-organized sites and sharing your story with the network. 

Newcastle VSW is about celebrating leadership and giving back to the community. We aim to create a tradition of service throughout the year and promote meaningful alumni- and student-led connectivity and activity across the network. You define what it means for you, what you care about, and then make it happen.
