Being part of the team would also offer you the opportunity to work with many incredible people, from your fellow students to charity workers across the country. Are you up to the challenge?
Famous for its wild socials, kick-ass events, and outrageous organizational skills, the events team is unique to DUCK: the one place you can party while still raising £££ for charity. This year we have loads of amazing things planned, including our renowned club nights, annual Big Band Ball, DUCK Race, as well as new additions such as College Swaps and a potential DUCK FESTIVAL on Palace Green…which you don't want to miss out on. I'm looking for people in my team who are committed (willing to dedicate lots of time and energy to DUCK), super organised (get shiz done when it needs to be done), and most of all, people who know how to have a good time! So please join me on my team, and get involved in the best year DUCK has seen yet. After all, why not party for charity hey?
Like a creative challenge and following a brief? Are your insta captions consistently fire and you back yourself as a social media king/queen? Do you have experience in photography, videography or graphic design? If so, get involved in the Publicity team! Get involved in every area of DUCK, working with other teams to ensure events reach everyone in the Durham community. If you want to be a part of shaping our brand and are creative, fun and collaborative, I want to hear from you! I'm looking for well-connected people who want to work together and learn new skills, a good sense of fun is always an added bonus! Help us spread all the amazing work DUCK does to the whole university!
You can get involved in DUCK in your college in 2 ways; as a DUCK rep (chosen by each college’s JCR- ask your college for details!) and in a new role- DUCK Liaison Officer for your college. Each liaison officer will be required to publish on JCR pages and use social media to advertise each of DUCK’s events, expeditions, endurance events and challenges. You’d attend meetings with the other officers and will be informed of all of DUCK’s activities and can feed back to the college charity team. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details!
