Student Volunteering Opportunities

We’re looking for Student Auditors for the Fairtrade Award. This is a voluntary role with resources and training available.

Student auditors will work in groups of two to four to audit all aspects of their own university or college’s work on the Fairtrade Award. You will firstly be fully trained on the award criteria and how to conduct an audit by SOS-UK and the Fairtrade Foundation in a training session conducted over Zoom. You will then review documents submitted by your institution and then meet with their staff to discuss their submission and any queries.

If you are interested in being a Student Auditor, please find more information and the link to apply here.
