Bringing research and insight to life is vital to inspire the next generation of researchers. We are looking for research professionals to volunteer for the MRS & AQR University Roadshow in 2017/2018.

Each year, MRS and AQR tour a range of UK universities with a team of volunteers explaining to undergraduates what research involves and the value it adds to both business and society.

This year, we want to take our annual roadshow to more undergraduates and we are looking for both junior and senior volunteers to present at their local university.

We need junior professionals, from agency or client side, with less than 3 years’ experience and senior professionals with over 5 years, experience and in a management position, to present to undergraduates. 

Junior volunteers:

  • Outline how they got a foot on the ladder
  • Detail the types of projects they have worked on
  • Give tips on how to get ahead
  • Explain the benefits of working in research
  • Talk about how they present research findings

Senior volunteers:

  • Coordinate and chair the sessions
  • Liaise with junior volunteers prior to the event
  • Support junior volunteers with their presentations
  • Introduce the session with an overview of MRS and AQR
  • Give examples big brand or government research
  • Present the careers information available

How to get involved?

If you are interested in volunteering for the university roadshow please email membership@mrs.org.uk and let us know the regions/cities you would be able to visit. We will then contact you with more detailed information on what is involved including details of our specialist volunteering webinar.
