Summer school tutor (voluntary role)

We're looking for volunteers to be academic tutors on our summer school programme. 

With our guidance and support, you will prepare and deliver a two-week course in a chosen subject of your choice. You have the flexibility to design a course you will enjoy teaching. 

Tutoring is a great way to gain undergraduate teaching experience. All of our summer school students are 15-18-year-olds, who we have selected based on their aptitude for learning and passion for their subject. 

Tutoring is low commitment, and for volunteering, we donate £1,000 to a charity of your choice. 

You can read the full job description here, and sign ups are open here


OxFizz board of directors (voluntary role)

OxFizz is looking for a new Chair and 2–3 Non-Executive Directors to join our London-based Board.

These roles would be ideal for those wanting to use their commercial expertise to help a fully sustainable social enterprise to scale up, and would particularly suit those with knowledge of or interest in education.

The role is voluntary, though we can pay travel expenses. The committee meets quarterly, for two hours on weekday evenings in central London.

We hope to appoint to these roles by April 2018. More information about the role, and how to apply may be found here. Alternatively, please feel free to contact Zoe Tyndall directly. 


tutor recruiter (paid on commission)

We're looking for post-graduates based in Oxford to help us recruit volunteers for our summer school. 

You will disseminate our recruitment materials; have initial chats with potential tutors about the role; refer on candidates for interviews with our Volunteering Coordinator. 

For each person you refer who successfully tutors on our programme, we will pay you a £50 "finders fee". Find our more here.



Mock Interviewer (Voluntary Role)

We're looking for graduates from Oxford or Cambridge to help us run mock admission interviews across schools in the South East. 

You will run interviews in a subject of your choice, and have considerable flexibility to choose which questions you ask. By running these interviews, you will fundraise for a charity of your choice and contribute to our Widening Participation programme

The bulk of these interviews happen between September - December, to coincide with the UCAS application process, but we welcome sign ups all year round.
