Help Squad are a group of student volunteers which provide information and assistance to first-year students during Freshers Fortnight.
They help new students move into halls, assist at events such as the Freshers' Fair, provide information on BLSMD and BLSA services and activities, and most importantly make every new student feel welcome at Barts and The London. Some of the skills we require from Help Squad Volunteers include enthusiasm, dedication, communication, problem-solving and time management. Benefits of taking part as a Welcome Crew Volunteer include:
Free pizza on move-in weekend
Free entry to selected BLSA Freshers events and club nights
Training opportunities and the chance to develop and use your teamwork, time management, communication, guiding and problem-solving skills
Free merchandise and clothing (hoody and t-shirt)
Meeting lots of new people and having fun
Anything else we can get our hands on!
