University Rep (volunteer)

We’re growing our volunteer team, and we want you to be part of it.

Protect Our Winters UK helps passionate outdoor people become effective climate advocates to achieve systemic solutions to climate change, protecting our world today and for future generations.

We rely on enthusiastic volunteers to grow our community and increase our impact and therefore we are currently looking to recruit a number of University Reps, who are members of university outdoor societies, to broaden our reach and help us drive positive climate action across the country to an engaged audience of university students. 

The University Rep will be part of the wider POW UK Universities Team working with the Head of Programmes, Programme Coordinator and team of University Coordinator volunteers to help us grow this arm of the charity. 


  • Support the delivery of POW’s effective climate action through the promotion of our campaigns both online and in-person within their university society. 
  • Work with our POW University Coordinators to organise fundraising activities at your society.


  • The University Rep will be an active member of a university outdoor society (snow, climb, mountain biking, trail running etc).  
  • They will possess excellent verbal communication skills and be confident delivering the POW message.
  • They will have experience working on their own initiative and taking ownership of a project or task.
  • They will have a personal commitment to the mission and values of Protect Our Winters and a drive to take effective action on climate change.


  • Our University Rep can commit to hosting at least 1 x fundraising event at their society per year. 
  • They will actively share POW UK’s campaigns both in-person and online.
  • They will represent POW UK within their society embodying our values and promoting our message in a positive manner. 


  • References and valuable experience within the sector.
  • Support from a passionate team and access to POW events.
  • Free access to high-quality educational training such as our UN-recognised, certified, Carbon Literacy course 
  • Free POW merch
  • Your society’s logo will be showcased on our website as a key university partner
