Opportunities

We're looking for alumni volunteers to support several initiatives within the School of Business and Management to help our students stand out from the crowd.

78% of students currently studying Business courses are from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME) background and half are the first in their family to go to university. Many of our students don’t have access to business professionals that they can reach out to for advice or guidance. Would you be willing to share your professional experience with Queen Mary students? 

How can I help? 

SBM Mentoring 

Offering just an hour of your time each month for six months as an SBM mentor could make a huge difference. Through one-to-one relationships with a member of our Queen Mary alumni community, students are inspired to make better-informed career choices. 

Speaking at events 

Throughout the year, we seek to provide as many opportunities as possible for our students to gain industry insights. By volunteering as a panellist, you can help to inspire a new generation of ambitious students, build their awareness of the opportunities open to them once they graduate, and help them to understand what steps they can take whilst studying. 

Other ways you can help

  • Speaking at employability and recruitment events 
  • Contributing to entrepreneurial projects 
  • eMentoring via the Queen Mary Network 
  • Offering internships/work experience 
  • CV support and mock interviews 
  • Sharing your story on our website and social media 

Our alumni are leaders, creators, educators, change-makers and our best ambassadors. They are working in every imaginable field and in every corner of the globe. No matter how much time you can commit, volunteering can make the world of difference to our Business students. 

Please complete this short form to let us know how you can offer your time to support the School of Business and Management. We are extremely proud and thankful for the fantastic contribution our alumni make across the UK and globally and look forward to welcoming you as an Alumni Volunteer!
