Want to gain skills and experience for your CV and contribute to environmental improvements being made at QM? Green Impact is currently looking for student auditors from around QM. Green Impact is an environmental accreditation scheme with an awards element, designed to encourage, support and celebrate university departments/faculties in making environmental improvements. Find out how you can get involved on my.qmul.
Interested staff can volunteer to participate in the scheme and received a workbook outlining achievable environmental changes. All the criteria relate to practical actions, such as only using recycled copier paper, or putting awareness stickers next to light switches.
Depending on the number of environmental actions departments/faculties carry out, they can achieve either: a working towards accreditation, Bronze, Silver or Gold. All departments participating in Green Impact will need an audit to verify their level of achievement…and this is where you come in!
What would I be doing?
In pairs, you would be doing checklist audits of buildings where staff have been reducing the environmental impact of their department/faculty.
What’s in it for me?
It will strengthen your CV.
Voluntary work, skills gained and experience of sustainability in the workplace will appeal to employers. You will get training and certification of your involvement!
What experience do I need?
None. Full training will be provided. All you need is an interest in the environment!
The training will take place on Monday 17 June and follow the programme below:
9.30am to 1:00pm - Auditor Training
1:00pm - 2:00pm - Lunch
2:00pm - 4:00pm- Practical auditing experience
How do I take part?
