What are your plans for the summer?  Are you wanting to earn some money and enhance your CV? 

This September the College will be running its 17th Annual Telephone Campaign (13th – 27th September 2021), and we are recruiting a team of 12 articulate and enthusiastic Robinson students who are passionate about their College and Cambridge to help us! In 2020, our fabulous team of student callers raised an incredible £136,000, to support students, teaching and other priorities and we can do the same again in 2021!

Apart from raising vital funding for Robinson students, what’s in it for you?

Not only will you be you will be asking Robinsonians to support their College, to enable future students to study at Robinson, just as you and they have, additionally, you’ll earn over £600 in two weeks, acquire some great experience and references for your CV and will get valuable training in negotiation skills.

The role of student caller also provides the opportunity to speak to a range of Robinson alumni from all over the world. This is a wonderful chance for you to learn about the College, hear all sorts of funny and interesting anecdotes, network and collect a wealth of advice and useful connections from those who have gone before you.  

"I really enjoyed my experience on the 2019 Telephone Campaign, talking to people from all backgrounds and gaining valuable calling experience. It was really helpful for me when I was looking for jobs upon graduation, and talking about my time calling alumni helped get me my current job working in sales for a company called Legerity. The Development team were also kind enough to provide a very helpful reference which helped me pass at the Army Officer Selection Board, which I hope to use to gain a commission in the Army in the near future!"  James, (ASNC 2017)
