Student Representative recruitment: Fight for justice from your campus!

Monday, April 11, 2016

Please see the Student Groups page for more information.

We have just opened Student Representative recruitment for 2016-17! This year's cohort were our first and have set the bar high. We hope that in 2016-17 the programme will continue to grow and that's where we need you!

What is a student representative?

The Amicus Student Representative programme was launched last year with the aims of increasing student engagement and awareness about capital punishment in the US. Reps act as the key point of contact between universities and Amicus. They are independently responsible for organising fundraising events and raising awareness about the work we do.

Who would be a good candidate for the role?
An Amicus representative should:

  • Have an interest in the US death penalty, human rights and fair trials
  • Be confident, creative, reliable and committed
  • Have strong interpersonal skills, events organisation and/or fundraising experience, and an ability to work independently

How should candidates apply?
Interested students should email contact us, and we'll then ask them to send their CV and cover letter, indicating:

  1. Why they want to be an Amicus rep
  2. What ideas they have for fund-and-awareness-raising events
  3. What experience they have of fundraising, events organisation, teamwork and social media

The deadline is 1st May 2016. We look forward to receiving your applications!
