We are currently recruiting students to become Green Impact Project Assistants (GIPAs) – a volunteering opportunity which allows students to gain useful employability skills for their CV.

The start of Green Impact at University of Westminster is approaching and this year, we would like students to be involved from the start!

Green Impact is an exciting, nationwide scheme which encourages pro-environmental behaviour in university staff, for more details see www.green-impact.org.uk/about.

Green Impact Project Assistants will gain transferable skills which will look good on their CV and increase their knowledge of environmental practices in departments across the institution.

Becoming a Green Impact Project Assistant will also improve your employment opportunities in a highly competitive job market.

Some of the many benefits include:

  • Insight into effective behaviour change methods and environmental issues at the university
  • Increased employability skills for after university
  • Experience of working on a national project in a professional environment
  • Knowledge of environmental management techniques of offices and academic institutions
  • Project management and leadership experience
  • Opportunity to meet like minded people and work to create effective change

Be inspired to take action on creating a sustainable future for everyone!

If your application is successful, we would like you to attend a GIPA training session on October 30th from 2pm to 4pm, room CH2.14, in Cavendish House (101 New Cavendish Street). Food and refreshments will be provided. Please confirm your availability for the training when emailing your form.
