Many Cranfield alumni have given their time, skills, and energy over the years to support our students and the university’s activities, and are a testament to the rewards and fulfilment that volunteering can bring. Our volunteers choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons, for some, it offers the opportunity to give back to Cranfield and make a difference, while for others it gives them the chance to develop new skills.

By volunteering you can:

  • gain new skills, knowledge or experience,
  • develop existing skills and knowledge,
  • enhance your CV and improve your employment and career prospects,
  • access student talent to promote or recruit for your company,
  • develop your professional network by meeting new people,
  • discover new opportunities,
  • make a difference to staff, students, prospective students, and fellow alumni,
  • get a great sense of satisfaction from using your skills to help others.
